HOLIDAY FLEXIBILITY DUE TO COVID-19

Friendship Travel was recognised in 2020 by Which? Travel magazine - click here for details - as one of the 24 Tour Operators you can trust to book a holiday with. Friendship Travel 'did the right thing' throughout 2020 and refunded clients and offered flexibility, to ensure we looked after our guests. For the holidays which did run in Summer 2020 we received excellent feedback from guests with regards to how they were looked after. See Feefo reviews by clicking here. 

 

MAKING NEW HOLIDAY BOOKINGS

COVID is now 'with us' for the foreseeable future so it may affect travel plans in the coming months and years. Where possible Friendship Travel, our airline and hotel partners will try to be as flexible as possible. However, all hotels and airlines are different and policies change. Generally, you can make changes at least 28 days before departure without any change fees (if prices are higher, the difference in price needs to be paid) - unless you have booked a special offer with strict conditions, a cruise (different terms) or a non-changeable flight. 

A good comprehensive travel insurance policy is needed by everyone (to include COVID cover) to ensure you are fully protected. This includes UK breaks as well as overseas holidays.

Our offices are now open on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am – 5pm, Thursday from 9am – 6.30pm and Saturday from 10am – 4pm.

 

WHO WILL HELP ME COMPLETE FORMS, QR CODES AND ARRANGE TESTS?

The entire team at Friendship Travel in the UK and Overseas has months of experience in completing forms, navigating requirements and arranging tests. If you need help, we have a dedicated team member in the UK who can give you a call to chat through everything. When on holiday our Hosts can help you as needed. Please don't let these forms 'put you off' going on holiday, we can help you arrange everything. 

 

WHO NEEDS TO GET A TEST?

  1. It’s your responsibility to ensure you get the correct tests carried out in line with the entry requirements for the country you’re travelling to.
  2. It’s important to note that, when you’re ordering the testing kits, you’ll need to purchase one for all passengers on your booking.

 

HOW TO GET A TEST (IF REQUIRED)?

Friendship Travel suggests Randox Health for a home test kit. These tests are ALL now reduced to only £48 each, not £120 as many places charge.

There are also many other providers for tests, including Boots The Chemist. Please use the provider which suits you best.
