Where and how to travel now

It’s time to start discovering our world once more (we mean it this time!).

This last month has seen significant developments for international travel, with many restrictions lifted. Earlier in October, the removal of the amber list was announced and now the remaining seven countries that were on the red ‘no go’ list have been removed as the risk of known variants entering the UK has reduced. Furthermore, you are now also able to take a cheaper lateral flow test in place of the day two PCR test when you return to the UK.

So what now we hear you ask.

It’s time to speak to our experts. Get in touch with them for recommendations of where is best to travel for the next few months, to start planning adventures for 2022, 2023 and beyond! They are armed with insight and current in-country updates for destinations so you can travel safely.

As ever, your travels matter – not just enriching experiences for you but also having a positive impact on the communities, wildlife and environment you are travelling to. Be the difference and look out for our new Positive Impact sections on our holiday ideas as well as some of our favourite owner-run properties contributing positively in our sphere.

Happy travels!

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.
