News for summer 2021…
There is a huge effort across Europe to vaccinate as many people as possible and with this ongoing, the number of Coronavirus cases will begin to fall.
That stunning water and warm sunshine are only a few months away now. The first plate of Calamari with a Greek salad and a cold beer are like a mirage shimmering in the distance.
All those booked to sail with us will receive a weekly update every Friday. We will include any new information or advice we have in this email.
Can I book for summer 2021 now?
Of course! Our team are on hand (as always) to find the perfect summer escape for you and your crew.
You can confirm your booking with a £250pp deposit and then the rest will not be due until 10 weeks before you travel.
As we had a lot of people defer over from the early part of last season, we already have quite a few dates that are filling up quickly. So, if you are looking to get a flotilla locked in, our advice would be to do it sooner rather than later!
Will I need proof of a COVID vaccine to travel to Greece this summer?
In short, no. The Greek Tourism Minister has said that “Under no circumstances will a vaccination certificate become a condition for someone to travel to our country.”
What the airlines say

How is my holiday and my money protected?

All holidays booked with flights are ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) protected - our ATOL number is 2580.
For any holidays booked excluding flights you are protected by ABTOT (Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust) - our ABTOT number is 5218.
You can find full details of our bonding here.
Check your passport!
One thing that you can be getting on with whilst waiting for the summer to start, is checking that your passport is valid for travel this summer. With rules having changed post-Brexit, it is worth using the Government Passport Checker which you can find here.
