Foreign & Commonwealth Office Travel Advice
Before making a booking, we advise you to check advice issued by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office on your preferred destination by accessing their website.
Advice can change so always check regularly for the latest updates. Please also ensure you make yourself familiar with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office advice on staying safe and healthy on your trip.
Passport & Visa Requirements
Passengers travelling overseas should make sure any passport held is valid for their trip. Some countries have an immigration requirement for a passport to remain valid for a minimum period beyond the date of entry to or exit from the country, and we do advise that you check the passport requirements for your tour by calling the UK Passport Service enquiry line on 0300 222 0000 (8am – 8pm Monday to Friday, 9am – 5.30pm weekends and bank holidays), or visit their website at www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice.
It is your responsibility to ensure that all tourists have the relevant passports and visas to travel on your tour. In most circumstances, UK Passport Holders do not require a Visa to travel to other European countries, however you can visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice to check this and also to check for travel to countries outside of Europe. Anyone in your group who does not hold a UK Passport should ensure that they have checked the requirements for their country and made the necessary arrangements for a Visa. Please contact us should they require supporting documents for their application.
If you have a question about visa requirements, you should contact the Consulate or Embassy of the country you are planning to visit. These telephone numbers are available through Directory Enquiries.
It is important that you ensure you have checked the entry requirements for the country you are visiting as many have unusual requirements. For example, for those touring to South Africa all travellers must ensure they have at least 2 blank pages in their passport (ie with no stamps) and that the passport is valid for at least 30 days from the date of exit from South Africa.
It is a condition of booking that you are adequately insured on your holiday; if you are unsure of who to approach for this please let us know and we can send you details of an insurer who can assist you.
