Travel Insurance

 

What is Newmarket's policy on travel restrictions?

 

We continue to closely monitor the fast-moving policies from the UK Government, overseas governments and leading travel industry bodies. Whilst we know we need to remain cautious with the ongoing pandemic, we are optimistic that the latest information coming from these bodies means that we will be able to operate holidays to many more destinations later this summer and into the autumn.

The wellbeing of our customers and staff remains our number one priority, and we continue to work very closely with our suppliers and partners around the world to ensure that our holidays operate to the highest levels of safety standards. We have created a series of measures to ensure that all our tours both meet and exceed the new required safety standards, with no detraction from your enjoyment. You can read more about this on our customer wellbeing page.

The UK’s travel advice changes every three weeks which is when we review holidays due to depart. Here is our policy regarding the UK Government’s traffic light system.

  • We will not operate holidays to "red list" destinations. We will give you the option to change your holiday with no change fee or receive a full refund within 14 days. These decisions will be reached at least three weeks before departure.
  • Regarding "amber list" destinations, we will not operate holidays to destinations where you will be required to quarantine on arrival to your destination. We will give you the option to change your holiday with no change fee or receive a full refund within 14 days. In some destinations, if you are fully vaccinated, you do not need to quarantine on arrival. We plan to continue to operate holidays to these destinations on this basis, as we ask all our customers to be fully vaccinated to travel with us. From 19th July 2021 and returning to the UK from "amber list" destinations, if you are fully vaccinated, you do not need to quarantine upon your return.
  • Holidays to "green list" destinations or the British Isles are planned to operate as planned, unless we advise you otherwise.
  • If we are unable to operate a tour, you will be entitled to change your holiday with no amendment fee or to cancel and receive a full refund within 14 days.
