Travel information hub

Guiding you back to travel


Welcome to our travel information hub, a curated collection of informative articles, designed to help you plan ahead for a return to international travel.

In preparation for travelling abroad again, we thought we'd share some informative guidance on the important things to consider when planning your time away, from the ins and outs of PCR testing to passport renewal and travelling to Europe in a post-Brexit world

The travel traffic light system

Following a return to international travel, the UK government has set out a new traffic light system based on Covid-19 risk levels, with each destination given a status of green, amber or red. Find out how it all works with our simplified guide, outlining what each level means and what you need to consider when planning your holiday.

PCR testing

An integral part of travel, at least in the short term, a PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test will be required not only when you return to the UK, but also a likely requirement to many destinations. Below, you'll find information on what these tests are, how you go about getting one and how much they're likely to cost. 

Passport renewal

As we wait for the world to open up, it's vital to be well prepared. Be sure to check the validity of your passport and, if you need to renew it, allow plenty of time – the government is currently advising a 10 week wait time. You can renew your passport online here.

Travel insurance

Has your annual insurance expired? Our partner policy has recently been enhanced to provide additional cover for cancellation, medical expenses and repatriation should any person insured on the policy become ill with any infectious disease, including Covid-19.

For the latest on all this and more, browse the articles below, then give the team a call to start planning your first post-lockdown adventure.
