Many of our clients are travelling to Amber destinations and the UK government has advised that from 19/7/21 fully vaccinated travellers, and children under 18 no longer need to quarantine. When you are making a new booking we may ask you about your vaccination ‘status’. This is so that we can give the property owners a level of confidence that the booking will go ahead..
