Holiday Safety

Before you travel

We have always recommended that individuals should have adequate travel insurance which is especially important now due to the recent global pandemic of Covid-19. 

It is important to check the latest advice for the country you’re travelling to, paying particular attention to the entry requirements and also for returning to the UK. Foreign travel advice for The Gambia & Government rules for entering England. Please be mindful that the information given is only for travel at the present time and is not necessarily applicable for later this year so do check it regularly.


Safety on holiday

The safety of our customers on holiday is our prime consideration. We request that all hotels comply with local regulations applicable in their country, but it’s important to be aware that they sometimes do not match the standards we have in the UK for health and safety. We’re committed to working with our partners to identity areas where safety can be improved. We would encourage our customers to talk to other members in their party about the need to take care when travelling abroad and to be aware of the possible risks. To help with this, please refer to the further information listed below.
