Where can I travel to this year?

After a long winter of uncertainty, it is looking very likely that international travel out of the UK will resume on May 17th. Restrictions will of course still apply and as yet are uncertain, but nonetheless, we thought it would help if we gave you an idea of the countries we anticipate going onto the government’s eagerly-awaited ‘green list’ (expected to be announced in early May). We have chosen the destinations below based on their recent COVID infection rates, vaccination program, testing capacity and their likely requirements for entry. We have also chosen these destinations for their seasonality and because we think they will provide a fantastic backdrop for your next holiday.

While we all wait to hear to which countries the UK government gives a green light, we hope you will take advantage of our flexible booking policy, allowing you to make plans without the risk of onerous payment terms. While certainty is a luxury we do not have right now, you can be certain that Steppes is here to help you make your next holiday a memorable one because we know how much you have earned it!

UK Holidays

The UK roadmap to easing lockdown restrictions across England has been released and currently, it is planned that from mid-April domestic travel within the UK will be possible, where safe to do so.


Overseas Holidays

As restrictions ease for international travel, we expect pent-up travel demand, coupled with last year’s postponements, to cause unusually high demand for sought-after properties and experiences in particular destinations. Whilst you may not be able to travel right now, we urge you to start a conversation with our experts and book in advance, if possible.

Flexible Travel Planning & Payment Service

If you’re looking to get away for a much-needed and well-deserved holiday but not sure where is the most feasible destination, we are happy to put on hold several holiday options for you, giving you greater flexibility nearer to your departure.

Furthermore, just as we tailor-make your holiday to suit your needs, we will do the same with devising a payment plan that works for you. This will mean reduced deposit amounts, a cooling-off period during which time your deposit is 100% refundable and a final payment date much later than normal. We will work closely with our friends and partners around the world for you.

COVID -19 Cover - Travel Insurance

More than ever, adequate travel insurance is an imperative part of your holiday. Although many travel insurance companies have not caught up with the crisis, and currently won’t cover for coronavirus-related claims, there are some that do. Steppes Travel is an Introducer Appointed Representative of Campbell Irvine Ltd, who are authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority and who now offer a brand new travel insurance policy that includes cover for cancellation or curtailment of a trip due to contracting COVID-19, or through being quarantined or refused permission to travel due to infection or suspected infection.
