Travel requirements to check before travelling

While the UK Government has removed all of the UK’s COVID-19 travel measures, you will need to check the Government’s latest advice for the country, or countries, you would like to visit at

This advice is provided by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) and includes important information such as:

  • Any advice against travel to a particular country or region.
  • Details of any entry requirements, including those relating to COVID-19 e.g. proof of vaccination and/or a negative test, as well as rules around passport validity and visas.
  • Advice on health, including the latest measures to manage COVID-19 at your destination e.g. the requirement to wear a face covering, and links to TravelHealthPro for recommended travel vaccinations and general health advice.
  • Guidance on safety and security, as well as information about local laws and customs, such as advice on what to wear when visiting a religious tourist attraction.

You’ll need to check this information regularly before your trip and it’s a good idea to sign up to country specific email alerts so you’re across any important updates.
You can also read guidance from the Government about travelling overseas during the pandemic at the Coronavirus travel guidance page and find more information about staying safe abroad at the FCDO’s Travel Aware page.

CANADA Entry requirements

Starting October 1, 2022, all COVID-19 border requirements, including vaccination, mandatory use of ArriveCAN, and any testing and quarantine/isolation requirements will end for all travellers entering Canada whether by land, air or sea.


USA Entry requirements



If you contract COVID-19 within 14 days of your departure date and have a medical certificate to confirm your diagnosis, we can try and move your holiday to the same holiday (including accommodation and airline) at a later date in the season. Extra charges may apply.

This applies to you and a travel companion sharing the same room, plus any dependents. If you would prefer to cancel your holiday, in the first instance please contact your travel insurance provider as we can only refund items that our suppliers wll re-imburse us for.


If you receive a positive test result whilst on holiday, you will need to contact your travel insurer for assistance and advice on next steps in the first instance.
Cover will vary dependent on the provider and level of cover you have chosen. We will provide every assistance we can to get you home but are not liable for any costs incurred.


It is essential you have the correct travel insurance. For your travel insurance to be valid, the FCO must have removed their advice against 'all but essential travel'. You should check that your policy covers you for medical expenses, subsistence and repatriation in the event that you or a member of your party contract COVID-19 during your holiday. Whilst we do not sell or recommend specific travel insurance policies ourselves, several insurers, including Cover for You, AXA, Trailfinders, Staysure and Cedar Tree Insurance are now offering policies that specifically cover COVID-19. Please note, from 1 January 2021 EHIC cards will continue to be valid until their expiry date when they will be replaced by a new UK Global Health Insurance Card.
