On Friday 3rd July we received the first positive news we have had in a while. The UK Government published their list of "quarantine free" countries and to our delight Greece (and all our other Mediterranean yacht charter destinations) was on that list. This means that we can begin doing what we do best...getting people out on the water!
We will be taking baby steps at first as we want to make sure that we get things right. But don't worry, we will be keeping you all updated as we go.
We are continuing to review our holidays on a rolling week by week basis and all bookings will receive a call from our team. We are currently contacting those booked 24th - 26th July.
If you are booked to travel with us in 2020 you should be receiving our weekly update emails (usually sent on a Friday). If you are not getting these emails and believe that you should be please email LaunchCrew@sailingholidays.com.
All advice below is from either industry experts at ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) or directly from the Government. We will link to all the information throughout, so you can find the answers to your questions fast!
We will continue to keep an eye on the (ever developing) situation and, as always, keeping our sailors safe is our number one priority!
Our London Office team are now all working remotely and as you may guess, we are currently experiencing a high volume of calls and emails.
We hope you are able to understand that it may take us a little longer to reply than usual, but rest assured that your questions and queries are just as important to us as ever and we will get back to you as soon as we can!
Our office hours are as follows:
Monday - Friday: 9am - 5:30pm
Saturday & Sunday: Closed
