Trek and covid-19

Updated 08/10/2021

All our holidays are operating in Greece.

As of 4th October, the rules for travelling to and from Greece have been substantially relaxed for adults (18+) who are double vaccinated* and under 18s to travel and return from Greece to the UK without any need for quarantine, and limited testing requirements.

The UK government has removed the Amber travel list, shifting Greece and Kefalonia to the Green travel list and the FCDO has no advisories regarding non-essential travel to Greece and the Greek Islands. This means UK guests can travel on holiday and travel insurance is valid. Click here for FCDO Travel Advice.

For added comfort when making a new booking or travelling with an existing booking this year we have updated our IPP protected booking policy to allow you more flexibility.

If you are fully vaccinated*, under the age of 18 or medically exempt from being vaccinated you must also provide:

A DAY 2 PCR TEST ready for arrival back in the UK. The booking confirmation no. is required for the UK Passenger Locator Form so we advise having your test booked prior to your holiday. Children aged 4 and under do not need to take a test.

As of 4th October, if you are fully vaccinated*, under the age of 18 or medically exempt from being vaccinated you do not need to take a test prior to returning back to the UK

For pre and post-holiday testing requirements, we are recommending that guests enquire through their airline or through the airport operating authority. There are also various companies offering home test kits. Randox Health and Collinson are options that we have found. Please note that Free NHS Tests CANNOT be used for travel purposes as they do not provide the ‘fit to fly’ negative test certificate required for travel.

If anyone in your party is aged 18 or over and is not double vaccinated, please contact our UK office for more information about travel requirements.

*Fully vaccinated means that you have had a complete course of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before you arrive in England. The day you had your final dose does not count as one of the 14 days. The vaccine must be administered under either the UK vaccination programme or an overseas vaccination programme with an approved proof of vaccination for travel to the UK. Check which vaccines are approved and the list of countries and territories with approved proof of vaccination
