Kuoni has established a Covid Travel Advice Hub where agents and consumers can find all the latest entry requirements and travel restrictions for the most popular destinations around the world.
The easy-to-use Hub is available online for anyone to use, not just Kuoni customers.
The operator says it’s the first site to bring together all the travel restrictions, including quarantine rules and requirements for a Covid test, making it easier to plan holidays for the year ahead.
Not all countries are included, but the Hub will have information on 50 of the most popular holiday destinations by the end of this week.
As well as showing which destinations are open to visitors from the UK, the advice hub includes travel corridor information, current Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office advice, Covid testing requirements, and quarantine rules on entering a
country or returning to the UK.
While overseas holidays are banned due to the latest UK lockdown restrictions, Kuoni says the advice will be continually updated as travel restrictions are eased.
“Early signs in January indicate there are plenty of people desperate to plan a holiday overseas this year and are prepared to book now. The advice hub will help travellers to see which places are open to book now for travel at a later date,” it said.
CEO Derek Jones added: “This is about making an increasingly complex situation simple to understand, providing answers to questions we know people are asking in a clear, searchable online format that anyone can access.
“During the pandemic we’ve seen two types of travellers emerge. There are those who want to get away quickly, who will go at short notice as soon as borders are open and the necessary Covid tests are in place.These customers want to know what’s possible now and the travel advice hub will be a valuable tool for these last minute bookers.
“Alongside that we have customers planning holidays a long way in advance so again this is a really useful way to simply search for what’s bookable now for travel later.”
The Travel Advice Hub will be updated daily.
