Increased Booking Flexibility in Response to Coronavirus

Written by Sean

At Follow the Camino and One Foot Abroad we value the safety of our customers and the confidence they put in us. We hear and share your concern about how the Coronavirus pandemic and resulting travel restrictions may affect us.

We want to ensure that we are fair with our customers, suppliers and ourselves. We want to give some flexibility for when people need to change their travel plans due to the impact of COVID-19. This is why we have updated our booking change policy to ensure that our customers will not lose out due to the pandemic.

This policy is based on our goodwill and does not intend to replace travel insurancewhich we strongly recommend.

At the moment, Europe is open to travellers from most countries around the world for vaccinated passengers. This may change with short notice, and we will do our best to accommodate any changes.

No Date Change Fees

Updated on 2nd March 2022:

COVID-19 Worry-Free Travel

All booking for 2022 departures can now be changed with no change fees up to 10 days before departure if you are unable to travel due to COVID-19.

While travel is almost back to normal, we know that plans may still need to change due to changes in international travel access and lockdowns.

That is why we are extending our super flexible travel offer to 2022.

If your existing booking has a departure date that is less than 10 days from the current date and you are suddenly unable to travel due to the following reasons:

  • a member of the party contracts COVID-19,
  • new travel restrictions come into place that prevent travel from your country,
  • other COVID-19 related restrictions outside of your control.

Please notify us of your intended new travel dates as soon as you can, since availability may be limited on certain routes in 2022. Certain accommodation prices may increase in 2022 as a result of extra demand caused by the Holy Year – if so the difference in holiday price may be applied.

The above change fee policy changes do not apply to large group bookings (10+people) and/or holidays where flights have also been booked by us on behalf of the client. All other terms and conditions in our Standard Terms & Conditions still apply. Please contact your Camino Consultant directly for further clarification in these scenarios.

Yoga on the Camino de Santiago

The travel situation may still change with little notice, so please make sure you are up to date and comply with all entry and departure requirements for the countries you are visiting and your home country.

Remember to double-check the requirements based on the passport you hold a week before travel and on the day you are supposed to travel.

Check with your airline to see what the impact of varying travel restrictions would be on your flights. Some airlines offer free date-change similar to ours, but not all of them and it may depend on your type of ticket.

We Will Travel Again

We are constantly reassessing the situation with your safety and wellbeing as our top priority.  If any alterations need to be made we will do as much as we can to make sure everything flows smoothly, so you can travel worry-free.

As normal, we recommend that all our clients take out comprehensive travel insurance.

We are committed to helping our clients to experience incredible active holidays. Thank you for your continued support and confidence in us.

Stay safe and buen Camino.
