As the travel restrictions begin to lift, we can at last get excited about the prospect of travel becoming a reality again. We will keep this page updated with the latest news as destinations open up, taking our lead, as always, from the latest Government advice. In addition to the Government advice, we remain in close contact with our own agents on the ground to get first-hand information and insight.
For the latest advice visit the Government travel advice website.
Please note that should you require a COVID-19 Border Entry Test or general travel vaccinations, we recommend contacting CityDoc, one of the UK’s leading providers of travel health vaccinations and medical services, led by a group of experienced GPs.

Or you could elevate your journey and talk to our specialists about taking a private jet to your holiday >>
British Airways are dedicated to making your trip as safe and stress-free as possible. To this end, they ask that you use their self-service kiosks or check-in online and drop off your bags at their Bag Drop area, self-scan your boarding pass before boarding where possible (although there will be staff on hand to help if you can't). There will be a dedicated check-in for Executive Club Members and Premium Cabin travellers.

Virgin Atlantic will be limiting the number of customers who are able to be in their check-in zones so you will need to allow plenty of time; they have added queue markers to help you keep your distance. Sanitising stations, face masks and health screening are all being used to ensure that everyone is symptom free. Virgin Atlantic ask you to scan your own boarding pass and hold up your passport for inspection to minimise contact and boarding will be limited to small groups, starting from the back of the aircraft.
EasyJet ask that you wear masks at all times; unfortunately, the Bistro and Boutique service will not be available for now. Ground and cabin crew will not handle your documents during boarding, so you will be asked to sign in on your app or present and scan your own documents.
Emirates will be restarting their Chauffeur-drive service in London and Manchester; your driver will be wearing a mask and gloves and they ask that you also wear a mask. Cabin bags are currently limited to a laptop bag, handbag, briefcase or baby items only, all other luggage will have to be stored in the hold. Emirates will be boarding the aircraft in smaller groups from the last row to the first.
