Advice for Travellers during 2021

Travel options are constantly changing and it’s still not straightforward. Veronica at Fare Wise Travel has constant updates on the Covid rules and regulations in other countries – and strongly recommends that you book with a travel agent at this time rather than online.

October/November 2021

As Covid cases rise, airlines are enforcing the mask-wearing rules and other countries can be extremely strict. For instance Turkey has armed police ensuring everyone wears a mask before they enter the airport and Tunisia has gone back to PCR tests because our infection rate has gone up so high and Morocco has banned all direct flights to/from the UK for at least the next 14 days.

Another reminder that prior to travelling back to the UK you must complete a Passenger Locator Form and book a PCR test for day 2 after their arrival.

But you can still travel safely if you are sensible. How about Wilderness to Desert – combining safaris in Namibia or Botswana or South Africa with a trip to Antartica? Contact us for details.

September 2021

Quick reminder folks that even if you have been double jabbed and are travelling to Europe’s Amber destinations you will still need to do a PCR test less than 72 hours before your return flight to the UK and pre-book a test for Day 2 after your return.

Good news that Italy has abandonned its quarantine requirement but Norway still has one so beware – just because they are on our Green List doesn’t mean that we are on theirs!

Holidays to Malta are currently very popular but Thailand is now off the menu as it is on our government’s Red List.

June 2021

Changes to the goverment’s Green list are eagerly awaited but if you want to play safe and wait till next year to go abroad, bookings for 2022 and beyond are available. And the good news is that there are more and more eco travel options available including agri-tourism that is taking off in the Drakensberg in South Africa.

Guernsey opens again 1/7/21 but France and Germany have re-imposed quarantines and limited flights. Caution as ever is the watchword.

Listen here (from 05min 5sec) to Veronica’s interview on 4LEGS Radio about the new cheaper and easier covid ‘spit’ tests, Spain opening to UK visitors, reminder about quarantine risks, short cruise sea staycations, summer choices in England, Channel Islands and the Scilly Isles.
