Some of our partners require proof of negative test inside of 72 hours or proof of vaccination. Given the fast-moving nature of the pandemic it is not always possible to let you know in advance which partners this applies to so it is best to be able to show proof of either of these as and when requested.
Please bear in mind, in the event that you are unable to produce either of the above we may not be able to secure refunds if you are unable to partake in a particular element of your trip.
