Guiding you back to travel


Welcome to our travel information centre, where you'll find a collection of informative articles, designed to help you plan ahead for a return to international travel.

As we begin to travel 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 now the UK has left the European Union

UK entry requirements

Since the reopening of international  travel in May, the UK government has used a traffic light system based on Covid-19 risk levels, with each destination given a status of green, amber or red. From 4th October, the system has been simplified, removing green and amber lists to leave just a red list, for destinations where FCDO advises against all but essential travel, and the rest of the world. You can find details of the UK's entry requirements below. And remember, always check the entry requirements of your chosen destination prior to travel.

COVID-19 testing

An integral part of travel, at least in the short term, a COVID-19 will be required not only when you return to the UK, but will also be a likely requirement for many international destinations. Below, you'll find information on PCR testing specifically, as well as how you go about getting one and how much they're likely to cost. 

Passport renewal

As the world opens 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. You can renew your passport online here.

Travel insurance

Has your annual insurance expired? Our partner policy has 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.
