Before taking one of our wonderful adventures, it is always a good idea to check out what is happening in the country you are travelling to, if there is any advice that you should take up, or any restrictions in place in the country. Generally, if there is anything specific going on, we will let you know up front, but we can summarise the things you might need to consider:
Brexit: Travelling from the UK in 2019
As the UK prepares to leave the EU, many UK holidaymakers have questions about what this means for their European adventures. We are a member of ABTA who is working closely with the government to minimise any disruption to those travelling to Europe next year and beyond.
Our team of adventure specialists are always on hand to help with any further questions you have about your travel plans so please do get in touch if you have any further questions.
Travelling after 31st January 2020
The Brexit extension has provided certainty that all current arrangements for travel will remain as they are today (until February 2020). This should give our customers the confidence to book their holidays, knowing that nothing should change in the short-term. If you are travelling after Jan 31st 2020, there have been assurances that travel from the UK into European destinations there is contingency legislation to allow free travel. You can find more details on the updated advice here at abta.com/Brexit. We will continue to monitor the developments closely, and keep you updated.

Insurance is an important part of any booking, in fact, having a travel insurance policy is one of the booking conditions for going on a Macs Adventure holiday. We know, its dull and extra money, but it is essential, especially when taking part in an active holiday.
Should you have an existing travel insurance policy, please take a few moments to ensure it is up to date, and the cover is adequate for your chosen destination and activity.
If you would like to obtain cover for your trip please feel free to contact specialist Insurance Brokers, Campbell Irvine Ltd for a quote by visiting their website or by telephone on 0844 826 2722.
