Covid travel restrictions and quarantine rules for countries around the world will, undoubtedly, prove to be a nightmare for a long time yet. So, it’s great news that trusted holiday giant Kuoni has launched an on-line hub to give us the information we need. And the best thing is, it is clear and concise. The government could learn a thing or two!
The Travel Advice Hub is for anyone to access, not just Kuoni customers, so if you are thinking of travelling anytime soon, take a look. Countries are being added to the list all the time, including popular European destinations such as Spain, Italy, Croatia, Greece and Turkey.
Further afield, the Caribbean, Mexico, Hong Kong, the Maldives, Thailand and the Seychelles are among more than 50 holiday hotspots already on the site. You can find whether you need to quarantine, be tested before leaving the UK, on arrival, during your stay, Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office advice and local regulations. Information will be updated and more countries will be added.
Kuoni CEO Derek Jones says: “The current travel ban won’t last forever but many of the Covid travel restrictions and regulations will be with us for some time to come. We are making this resource available for anyone who wants to use it.”
Mr Jones believes the pent-up demand for travel is huge, adding: “When the flag (finally) drops, we are going to see the biggest peak sales period of all time as people rush to book their escape.”
The site has been applauded and welcomes by the travel industry. Cathy Bartrop, MD of travelguru.tv tweeted: “Bravo Kuoni – this is the most up-to-date, least confusing resource I’ve seen.”
