COVID 19 PANDEMIC DISCLAIMER
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented many challenges in the travel industry with travel arrangements being inconvenienced or affected by airline cancellations and changes to their schedules, including but not limited to, restrictions placed on travel by the governments of many countries and adherence to specific country regulations.

By booking through Beach Holidays, you are accepting these conditions and release Beach Holidays from any responsibility with regards to the below:

Beach Holidays assumes no responsibility in this regard and shall not be liable for any unsafe conditions or health hazards including pandemics or other illnesses in any manner whatsoever. You must review the latest health information provided by the World Health Organization before embarking on your journey to ensure that you have all the specific information relating to your specific trip.

Rules of Travel Suppliers and Governments:  Beach Holidays shall not accept any responsibility for Covid-19-related requirements that are imposed by travel suppliers, airlines or governments, such as health affidavit forms, health screenings prior to departure, or on arrival, and/or Covid-19 tests. For the latest information, you are required to check with the airline you have booked with, as well as government websites of the countries you are travelling to and through.

Changes and/or cancellations of a service: Any bookings made for travel may still be affected by unexpected changes by the respective airline, supplier, and/or policies of the Governments of the countries in your journey.  Beach Holidays shall not be held liable for costs incurred, should that information require changes to your booking.

Refund fees: Beach Holidays will however assist you to the best of its ability with obtaining any refunds which may be due or rebooking trips using future credits where applicable, for which we will charge a service fee,  however, Beach Holidays will have no control in respect of the outcome and will be governed by the original Terms and Conditions, including any penalties (changes or cancellation) imposed by the respective airlines/suppliers utilized in your booking.

Please ask your consultant for information on this additional level of insurance cover.
