Is it safe to book my holiday yet?

Is it safe to book my holiday yet?

The simplest answer is that it has always been safe to book a holiday with us. Your monies are completely ATOL Protected (we hold ATOL 9464). Last year all clients booked on holidays we were not able to provide, as the borders were closed due to the pandemic, were refunded on average within 48 hours or accepted a voucher for this year: an enviable record that puts many others to shame.

Should l book my holiday now or wait for more news?

With recent news in the media particularly concerning Greece’s positive approach to tourism this summer, and in expectation that Greece will go 'Green' in the next review at the end of May/ early June, we have seen a surge in demand particularly for peak season holidays, and many of our regular guests who were unable to visit us last year have already booked for this coming year. 

What if my holiday is cancelled due to Covid? 

Firstly, if it is deemed unsafe to travel and therefore UK/Greek Govts prevent us from operating our holidays then we will necessarily have to cancel holidays and refund/offer credit vouchers for future holidays, as happened in the first half of the 2020 season. 

Secondly, whilst our normal deposit is required to book a holiday, we will not request the payment of the holiday balance until we are certain that the holiday can take place.

Thirdly, if you book a holiday and we subsequently offer any strategic discounts on particular dates we will automatically apply the discount to your holiday already booked on a like for like basis if applicable (i.e. same date/duration/airport/accommodation). So, you can book with confidence knowing you won’t pay more than someone else booking later – and you’ll be getting the exact holiday you want.

Finally, there were no cases of Covid at Healthy Options in 2020 or on any of our BA flights. With the vaccination rollout, increased testing and measures outlined above plus the health protocols we have already implemented in resort successfully last year, we are confident that we can provide our guests once again with a fantastic holiday in a safe environment along with sunshine, blue sky and some great sailing!

Currently 'Green' rules mean that you will need a PCR or lateral flow test 72 hours before returning to the UK and you'll be delighted to know that we have planned in advance and that testing will be available at at our centre for travellers returning home.
