UK: travel conditions to and from our destinations

`

Dear partners,

To help you see more clearly, we have summarized the conditions for travel to and from our destinations.

IMPORTANT

  • On this page we list the requirements for screening for the virus (via tests) or vaccination, which we consider to be able to influence the decision to travel in our destinations. But other conditions to be fulfilled, such as downloading applications or filling out forms, may also be required for travel: inquire before departure, we are at your disposal to inform you.
  • For all destinations, we recommend that you contact the airlines which may require stricter rules than those in force in the country, especially with regard to travel with children.
  • For European destinations, the presentation of a valid European COVID digital certificate is strongly advised.
  • Magic Travels is not responsible for the information provided and sudden changes may occur depending on different countries and governments.
