Expert Travel Advice

We regularly review and update the way in which we operate our holidays to keep our travellers safe, healthy and happy. Local and Head office support is available in every destination, all day, every day of your trip and our detailed self-guided route directions minimise the need for contact with local service providers on the ground.

Our team works in tandem with our local suppliers to keep you safe during your holiday. We’re on-hand to provide complete support to guide you through pre-departure requirements, as well as on your trip, and we’re happy to help with logistics for return testing if needed.

Private options – our experienced UK-based team can arrange private travel options in transfers or even a private rental car to minimise contact with others, you may even consider self-drive travel to flying for some destinations (ask for details).

Approved Destinations

At Headwater Holidays, the safety of our customers, staff and supplier partners is paramount. We will only travel to a country where the following criteria has been met:

  • The UK Government does not advise against travel to your chosen country.
  • COVID infection rates are under control.
  • Entry requirements are reasonable and local restrictions do not significantly impair the itinerary.
  • We have access to a list of approved emergency medical services.
  • Our local partners are able to meet our COVID safety requirements.

We use, Healix, a leading Global Travel Risk Management company to ensure we have correct, consistent and up-to-date information about all destination risks.

Clean and Safe

In the regions and countries in which we offer our holidays, we’re working with suppliers who are introducing enhanced safety and cleaning protocols in response to COVID-19, in line with local government agencies.

Natural Social Distancing

As most of Headwater’s holidays are self-guided, this already provides our customers with the opportunity to socially distance naturally whilst out and about on their walking, cycling or canoeing routes.

If in the unlikely event you show symptoms of COVID-19, or have received a positive test or have been asked to self-isolate via your Government’s Test and Trace scheme up to 20 days before travel, we will transfer your booking free-of-charge to a future departure or trip. Terms apply.

We recommend that you purchase travel insurance that includes medical cover for COVID-19, Coronavirus, or any pandemic illness. You will need this to cover any care or costs relating to COVID-19.
