Where and when can I travel?
We have our finger on the pulse with developments in our industry. Travel corridors have now been announced by the FCO, allowing travel between exempt countries without the need to self-isolate in the UK on your return and the lifting of the 'all but essential travel' warning. However not all countries which are on the travel corridor list are allowing UK nationals to enter without quarantine or restrictions. To alleviate this confusion we have done the hard work for you and will be constantly updated the list of countries you can travel to (which are destinations we feature) with no quarantine restrictions either side of your travel. The restriction free countries are:
- St Lucia
- Cyprus (expected from 1st August)
For our UK retreats, we are expecting many of our partners to begin operating by the beginning of August.
Will I need a Covid-19 test to travel?
Some destinations such as Cyprus are currently requesting Covid-19 test certificates, this may change in the near future however.
In addition some medical spas are also initially requesting test certificates including SHA and Villa Eden.
We will advise you prior to booking if a test is required for the destination or spa you are visiting.
Where test certificates are required we can recommend if you live or work in London DocTap's COVID-19 Fitness to Travel PCR Swab Test + Certificate for £125. This is a self collection test near Oxford Street and drop off sample to lab 3 minutes walk away. Turnaround time is 2-3 working days.
Some countries namely Cyprus and Madeira require a PCR swab test which has been taken within 72 hours of travel, for a service with a guaranteed turnaround of 48 hours we can recommend Private Harley Street clinic which offer in-clinic or a self administered home service fro £250 inclusive of travel certificate.
