Package Holidays and Coronavirus


  • If you booked your holiday as a package, you will be able to claim from your tour operator for any losses incurred under the Package Travel Regulations.


  • If your holiday destination is on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) list of places where travel is not advised, and you have not yet travelled, you will be able to either move the date of your holiday, change the destination, or claim a refund from your holiday provider.


  • If you are currently on holiday and the country you are in gets added to the FCO no travel list, your tour operator (if you are on a package holiday) should arrange travel back home for you. It may mean cutting your holiday short but you should be able to claim from your travel insurance.
