For the first time in almost two years, the road looks clear for overseas holidays to return – in full with very few restrictions.

So unlike previous updates where we have had to carefully explain the rules, how they could change in different ‘traffic light’ situations, now if you are fully vaccinated the world really is  open.

Of course, some countries (Australia the most high profile) still do have limitations, but we can advise you of this at the point of enquiry.

Whilst the full freedom to travel is a situation we have all been excitedly looking forward to, there are still important considerations to bear in mind when considering your options in 2022. First and foremost, capacity is going to be key. Even pre-pandemic the number of tour operators had reduced making ‘last minute’ deals something unfortunately consigned to the past.

This year we additionally have two years’ worth of holidays that have been cancelled and rebooked – so flights will already be filling up fast and hotel availability limited. If we could recommend anything it would be to book early and to be flexible. Booking early secures your trip and will give you the best possible price, being flexible will ensure that if we can’t find your first choice option, our experienced team will present you with a range of alternative options for you to choose from.

By booking at Bailey’s you can rest assured that every holiday we sell will be fully ABTA and ATOL protected, meaning that if things do happen to change your holiday will be protected. Our team have also been in place throughout each and every lockdown, so you can book with absolute confidence whatever happens.

So take advantage of the return of holidays and visit us today
