Good to know…

In accordance with the latest government guidelines, we are currently working from home. You can reach us on all the usual channels but our response time may be slightly delayed; thank you for your patience.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are experiencing a high volume of calls. If you have a booking due to depart more than 14 days from now please be patient and keep calling us if at all possible; someone will be in touch when a decision from you is required.

If your departure dates is with in 28 days

If we have not been in touch to discuss paying your balance, please don’t worry. We will contact you at the latest 14 days before your departure date to discuss your options. If at this point the holiday is operating and you chose not to travel, you will not incur any cancellation charges but you may forgo your deposit. Alternatively, if your holiday is cancelled, we will discuss options for your deposit.

What happens if I want to cancel my booking more than 14 days ahead of my departure date ?

Provided we can still fulfil all the elements of your holiday, our standard booking conditions and cancellation terms will apply; travel restrictions can be lifted as quickly as they are imposed, and it is too soon to be able to know whether your holiday can go ahead as planned.Changes to your booking, such as deferring to 2021, may be possible but may incur additional charges.

If you have specific reasons for not wishing to travel when there are no FCO restrictions in place, we ask you to contact your travel insurers for information about cover.

If you worried about quarantine measures!

Whilst the UK government is introducing quarantine for all arrivals in the UK from June 8, it has said it will review its policy every three weeks, with the date of the first review being June 29. It is unlikely that they will lift quarantine measures without changing the FCO travel advice to avoid ‘all but essential’ travel, thereby making holidays to some or all of our destinations possible this summer.

Do you want to rebook your holiday for next year ?

All Voyage Elegante package holidays (flight inclusive) are protected by ATOL and for all accommodation-only holidays our normal booking conditions and cancellation charges apply. Which means that the cost of your holiday is underwritten by these trade regulators and your holiday is protected.
