As we start to think of holiday plans for next year, your health and safety continues to be our top priority.

Our ‘Flavours Safety First’ campaign has been successfully launched, during our Autumn dates this year, as we have had the pleasure of welcoming our wonderful guests back to our beloved Italy. The overall feedback, we have received from those guests, has been amazing and we are delighted to hear that they have so enjoyed the true Flavours experience with us, whilst feeling so safe and well looked after by our amazing teams in Italy.

Below are the questions we have been frequently asked by our guests.

Q1.Will I be able to go on holiday this year?

We are hopeful with the rollout of the vaccination programme along with the UK and other countries agreeing on travel policies, that we will be traveling again in 2021. The team at Flavours will continue to review and act upon the most up to date travel advice on a regular basis, both in the UK and in each of our destinations.  

Q2. I’m due to travel in the future, can I cancel or postpone now ?

If you’ve booked a holiday under our Peace of Mind Guarantee, you have the flexibility of postponing your booking, at no additional cost, to an alternative date before the end of 2022.  If there are any changes to your holiday cost (e.g. due to a change in location or you select a longer holiday duration), you will be responsible for any changes in cost in these circumstances.

If you decide to cancel your upcoming holiday and the FCDO has not advised against travel to your destination, then our standard booking and cancellation conditions will apply.

Q3. What happens if I am unable to travel because of a Covid related illness ?

If you become unwell or have to quarantine, as a result of COVID 19 within 14 days of your departure, you have the flexibility to move your booking to any future available date before the 31st of December 2022.

If your holiday date is otherwise proceeding as planned and you do not wish to move your booking to an alternative date, our standard cancellation charges would apply.

Under EU arrangements, all UK travellers are still entitled to reciprocal health care whilst in Europe.

Staysure, one of the biggest in the UK, have kindly given us some insight into the world of Travel Insurance and you can watch an interview with our founder Lorne and their CEO, Ryan, where you’ll find answers to all the key questions.

Staysure now include cover for the coronavirus in their travel insurance policies, at no extra cost. This includes cover for cancellation and repatriation, as well as emergency medical expenses.

The specific health and safety precautions you may be asked to observe whilst you are on holiday may vary depending on the choice of destination. Most destinations however, will observe social distancing and require you to wear a face mask in certain settings.
