Coronavirus worldwide outbreak

22 May 2020

THERE ARE SOME SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS due to the threat of cancellation because of the Coronavirus worldwide outbreak.

Important Government announcement on Friday May 22nd 2020. If travelling from another country either by Air, Train or Ferry you will have to self-isolate for 2 weeks in a private house. You will have to presnt a valid address where you will be isolating for 2 weeks, where you will be visited by the police. If you are not there you will be fined 1000 pounds. Remember better to be safe and NOT come until 2021.

NO NEW bookings will be confirmed or deposits taken before September 1st (though I am happy to discuss later bookings).  I am being cautious on when it is safe to assume that all services I use (accommodations, taxis and rail transfer) can be provided without a cancellation at a later date.

If you have a booking in July or August you MUST check with your airline regularly and keep me informed as soon as you can.

If you want to make a booking you must have a trip cancellation insurance policy OR fully accept that deposit and final payments already made are non-refundable. Your trip insurance should cover you if you request a change to your dates after confirmation (some airlines have already started cancelling or bumping to a different date after booking) or cancel due to any circumstances. When I start reserving rooms and booking taxis and luggage transfer for your tour I will have a contract with them to provide the service for you.

Hi Philip, I just wanted to let you know that we had an excellent walking trip last week through Exmoor. All of your arrangements worked out as promised, we had no significant problems with any details or with the navigation, the walk and the weather were excellent, and we really enjoyed the places you picked for us to stay. We will strongly consider using Explore Britain again in the future. Thanks very much.
