2021/2022 travel information

 

Travel Restrictions

Following the UK Government’s announcement on 22 February, we weren’t able to provide ski holidays for the latter part of the Winter 2020/21 season. This was very disappointing news for everyone, and we regret the ongoing disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. 

With all of that said, we are very much looking forward to welcoming customers back to our incredible ski resorts in the winter of 2021/22.

Covid-19 Promise

We understand that customers might be concerned about booking, given the uncertainty surrounding lockdowns and the Coronavirus outbreak. To give you greater peace of mind, you won’t need to pay your final balance until 6 weeks prior to departure instead of the normal 12 weeks. This will provide some very welcome flexibility as you plan your much-needed summer getaway after the events of the past year. 

All Mark Warner holidays are fully covered by the ATOL system, which means that your holiday money is fully protected. For further information, please refer to our covid-19 booking pledge.

Safety on your flight & in resort

We were able to operate our Summer 2020 resort programme from July last year and received fantastic feedback from our guests, who were all very impressed that we were able to offer a safe holiday environment which at no time compromised the quality or took the fun out of their time abroad. Our experienced operations teams in the UK and overseas conducted a very thorough “top to bottom” review of all aspects of our summer operation ahead of time, and this meant that we were able to ensure that we had the right social distancing and other necessary safety measures in place while still delivering a great experience throughout.

For further details of the measures that will be in place, please refer to 'Your safety on holiday (sun)' or 'Your safety on holiday (ski)' pages for more information.

Children may be added to a parent's form or have their own form, but they must be included. On completion of the form, a confirmation email will be sent with a summary of the information provided.

Passports

For holders of British or EU citizen passports, no visas are required for visiting any of the European countries featured in our brochure. Citizens of other countries should consult their embassies or consulates for applicable passport and visa requirements.

For British Citizens, adults require a ten-year British passport for all the countries we operate to and children a five-year British passport. A British passport presently takes approximately 3 to 6 weeks to obtain. If you are 16 or over and haven’t yet got a passport, you should apply for one at least 6 weeks before your holiday. The UK Passport Service must confirm your identity before issuing your first passport and will ask you to attend an interview in order to do this. Full details are available by either visiting their website or telephoning the passport office on 0300 222 0000.

If you are not a British citizen or hold a non-British passport, you must check passport and visa requirements with the embassy or consulate of the country(ies) to or through which you are intending to travel.

Please also check the validity of your passport, as some countries require passports to be valid for a certain length of time after the end of your holiday arrangements; this may be up to 6 months. If you are unsure, please contact the appropriate embassy or consulate of the country you are travelling to. It is the party leader’s responsibility to ensure that all members of the party are in possession of all travel and other documents necessary for your holiday. We cannot be held responsible if guests are prevented from travelling or re-entering the UK due to the lack of valid passports or visas.

Further information can be found at www.gov.uk. Use this resource to check the validity of a passport for European travel.

The Foreign Office publishes regularly updated travel information on its website, which we recommend that you consult before making a booking, and in good time before departure.

 

Flights

Our contracted flights

As our travel arrangements for are made many months in advance, the flight details shown here, on the accommodation pages and on our website are provisional flight arrangements and approximate flying and transfer times. All flight timings for sun holidays and ski holidays are provisional and may change up to the point of departure.

Your flight numbers and timings will be confirmed when e- tickets are issued approximately 7-10 days before departure. The airline or likely airline which will operate your flight will be communicated to you at the time of booking. Where we can only advise you regarding the likely airline at the time of booking, we will confirm this as soon as we are in a position to do so. Bookings are not accepted on the basis that they are conditional on particular flight timings or carriers, and a change of flight timing or airline does not entitle you to change or cancel your holiday unless otherwise stated in our Booking Conditions.

On busy dates, it may be necessary for us to buy extra seats; these may be with different airlines and operate at times that differ from those shown in our brochure or on our website. Supplements may be payable for these flights. As transfers for these extra flights will often be operated in conjunction with our usual flights, there may be a short additional waiting time at the airport

Connecting flights

Please note that flight timings given at the time of booking are provisional and subject to change. Bookings are not accepted on the basis that they are conditional on particular flight timings. Guests with onward connections should allow plenty of time in the event of a schedule change or flight delay.

We strongly recommend that tickets for onward connections are booked on a fully flexible basis to accommodate any changes or delays. If you choose to travel with British Airways, please note that you will not be able to check your bags all the way through to final destination.

Infants & pregnancy

Infants

Please note that those under two years of age are not allocated a seat on the aircraft or transfer coach on the date of return travel to the UK; they will need to sit on a parent’s knee. Although infants are not provided with a meal on the flight, the cabin crew will be happy to heat up any food that you bring with you.

It may be possible to purchase a seat for infants, for details, please ask our reservations staff at the time of booking. Scheduled airlines make charges for infants, and we will advise you of the full infant cost at the time of booking.

Pregnancy

Each airline has its own set of rules for passengers travelling when they are pregnant. Ladies who are more than 33 weeks pregnant on their return date cannot travel on our charter flights. After the 28th week of pregnancy, a medical certificate confirming ‘fitness to fly’ is required which must confirm the expected date of birth. This should be issued as close to your departure date from the UK as possible. Scheduled airlines have their own policies on pregnancy which will apply. Please check your insurance policy for any restrictions on cover provided.

Please check the airline with which you are travelling for more information.

Travel documents

E-tickets will be sent to you approximately 7-10 days before the start of your holiday. We must have an up-to-date email address for your booking. Please check your documents carefully as soon as you receive them as flight details can sometimes change from those published in the brochure, on the website or detailed on your confirmation invoice.

Health

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are familiar with all of the recommended vaccinations and health precautions in good time before departure. Details are available from your GP surgery or local travel clinic and from the National Travel Health Network and Centre: www.nathnac.net. Information on health abroad is also available on www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Travelhealth.

You should ensure that vaccinations or preventative measures, such as malaria tablets, are taken early enough (which may be a month or more prior to departure). At the time of publishing this brochure, no vaccinations were required for visiting any of the Mediterranean countries featured in this brochure.

For holidays in the EU/EEA, you should obtain an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) prior to departure from their website: www.ehic.org.uk. The EHIC may entitle you to reduced cost, sometimes free, medical treatment in public hospitals and clinics while you’re in a European Economic Area, although restrictions apply. It should be noted, however, that the EHIC is not a substitute for travel insurance, which must be taken out before departure.

If you are undergoing any form of medical treatment, we recommend that you consult your GP in good time prior to departure and ensure that you take sufficient medication and corresponding prescriptions with you where necessary.

In some countries, the services and drugs provided may be of a different standard to that received in the UK. Please remember to pack any vital medication in your hand luggage.

Health requirements and recommendations may change, and you should check the up-to-date position in good time before departure.

For further travel information details, please telephone our Flight Operations Department on 020 7361 8900.

This discount is only applicable to holidays sold at full brochure price and will only be given if we are advised at the time of booking that you do not require our flight or transfers and cannot be added at a later date.

If a coach transfer is required from the overseas airport where you have made your own flight arrangements, there will be a charge for this (subject to space being available).

You must request this at the time of booking.
