Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

Because of the extremely high volume of customers needing our help, please only contact us if you are flying in the next 72 hours. We need to prioritise customers who are travelling imminently. Thank you for your patience as we deal with this unprecedented situation.

Find the best way to contact us using our help guide

Due to the ongoing situation regarding COVID-19, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office UK have advised against all but essential travel before the 16th April 2020.

If your holiday has been affected

If you were due to travel before 16th April 2020, look out for an email from us about putting your holiday on hold.

We’ll be in contact as soon as possible to discuss your options:

  • Rebook your holiday at a time that suits you by giving one of our team a call before 31st July. This can either be the same destination or we can look at alternatives, as well as different times of the year before 31st December 2021.
  • Put your holiday on hold. If you're not sure when or where you want to travel, we'll give you a voucher. Call us before 31st July to book your holiday any time before 31st December 2021.
  • If you wish to cancel and get a refund, call us and one of our team can help with this option. Please bear in mind our wait times may be longer than usual and issuing the refund may take up to 45 days, due to sheer the volume of processing claims.

Away from home?

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) is advising British people travelling abroad to return to the UK now.

Due to increasing travel restrictions, Virgin Atlantic has reduced its flying programme and is only operating scheduled flights between London Heathrow and New York-JFK, Los Angeles and Hong Kong.

If your flight has been cancelled and you cannot get home, it's really important that you let us know through our Away from home form

By completing this form, our team will know where you are and can organise options to get you home. Depending on the restrictions in the country you are in, we may need to arrange a flight for you with an alternative carrier or provide a charter flight. Having your contact details  allows us to keep in regular contact with you via email and SMS messaging.

Important - please ensure you visit the FCO website to keep up to date with travel advice and register for email alerts.

If you are due to travel before the end of May 2020

We’re flexible with your holiday plans.

For existing bookings due to travel before the end of May 2020, you can postpone your holiday to a later date or even choose a different destination instead.

Holidays from June 2020

In line with the advice from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office UK, all trips booked from June onwards are unaffected. If this changes, we will of course be in touch with you.
