Travel restriction-free to most European countries

Fantastic news – following many other European countries, France has dropped ALL COVID-19 entry requirements which means you no longer have to show proof of vaccination status, proof of a negative COVID-19 test, or fill in any COVID-related forms when visiting the country.

Cheaper, more convenient and completely hassle-free, you can now enjoy restriction-free travel in most European countries!

When returning from your tour outside of the UK, there is also no testing required, no need to fill in a Passenger Locator Form and no need to quarantine on return.

European countries that do still require a COVID-19 Pass:

  • Latvia
  • Luxembourg
  • Netherlands/Holland
  • Slovakia
  • Spain

Always keep up-to-date with local rules and please make sure you carefully check your itinerary for all countries visited whilst you are on tour, including overnight hotels, mainstay hotels and excursion visits.

It is your responsibility to check the latest requirements that are in place at the time of your travel. The latest individual country entry requirements can be checked here:

Safety Measures

Your safety is our utmost priority and we would like to reassure you that we are always monitoring the latest government advice.

  • It is recommended that you bring your own face covering and to wear it throughout your journey on the coach.
  • We also recommend bringing your own hand sanitiser that you can use throughout your tour.
  • Some hotels have suspended daily housekeeping, meaning that your room may not be serviced during your stay. Should you require clean linen or towels, tea and coffee or anything else, please do not hesitate to ask reception.
  • Rooms are deep cleaned between guests with a focus on all hand-contact surfaces.

General advice

All customers should follow sensible guidance to reduce their risk of exposure to COVID-19. Viruses can easily be passed from person to person, however, the best preventative measure to stop the spread of infections is to wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap, then rinse them well under running water. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. Always cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin and wash your hands with soap and water.

We will update this page with further information as guidance from the Government changes. The latest information and advice on travel to specific countries can be found at
