Kuoni – Covid-19 Travel Update

Kuoni – Covid-19 Travel Update

For customers with existing bookings:

The British Government has announced a move to remove the traffic light system in favour of a simplified approach for international travel, which comes into effect on 4 October 2021. 

A red list of countries will remain with travel restrictions still in place, but we are slowly starting to see more destinations beginning to re-open for travel and testing requirements being reduced for fully vaccinated travellers. 

For anyone who has a holiday due to depart in 2021, please be assured that our team will be calling you to talk to you about your booking and advise about the options available to you for your forthcoming trip.

We will be working through all bookings on a departure date order and will be working on a rolling 3 week basis ahead of departure

If you have a query regarding your booking which is due to depart in 2022, then please email support@kuoni.co.uk or call 0800 056 0517 and one of the team will be able to assist you.
