Travel advice while COVID-19 regulations are in place

As the situation with Covid-19 fluctuates, local regulations and advice for keeping residents and visitors safe will vary from country to country and are likely to change as time goes by. We will endeavour to keep up-to-date with the rules in On Foot's destinations, as laid out below.

COVID-19 travel advice

As the situation with Covid-19 fluctuates, local regulations and advice for keeping residents and visitors safe will vary from country to country and will change as time goes by – hopefully easing considerably as travel restrictions are lifted during 2021. We will endeavour to keep up-to-date with the rules in On Foot’s destinations, as laid out below.

Walkers should check their own government’s advice on travel before booking, in case of restrictions on travel and self-isolation or testing measures that may have to be followed on return. It is the clients’ responsibility to understand and comply with all regulations that are relevant to their travel.

General information for UK residents:
UK residents will find Government advice at www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice, and further help from ABTA here.

All the UK is under general lockdown (from 5th January 2021), and non-essential travel is currently impossible. However, following announcements in the UK in February about the gradual relaxation of lockdown, it seems likely that holidays will be possible for many UK residents from late-May onwards. We will contact all clients who are affected by recent announcements, and will, of course, continue to monitor the situation.  Please do contact us if you have any questions about travelling into or out of the UK, and visit the websites mentioned above for detailed information.

When travel is possible again, you will need to consider rules that may affect your return to the UK – bear in mind that much of this paragraph is likely to be irrelevant or at least less stringent by the time that international travel is allowed! Everyone travelling into the UK must fill in a contact form online 48 hours before returning. All must self-isolate for 10 days on arrival unless travelling from a country on the travel corridor list. (The travel corridor list has been temporarily suspended from 18th January 2021.) For travellers into England only, from 15 December 2020 the 14-day quarantine can be reduced to 5 days by completion of a negative test on arrival and again after 5 days self-isolation. Travellers arriving in England from a country on the banned travel list (‘red list’) must isolate for 10 days in a ‘managed quarantine hotel‘. Additionally, from 18 January 2021 all arrivals into the UK must provide proof of a negative test taken no more than 72 hours before beginning their journey – see more details here, including any local variations in the UK.

There may be quarantine/test conditions or travel bans on UK residents entering other countries (in addition to the general conditions outlined below) – please check the current situation before booking and travelling.
