The world has re-opened to international adventure, but it’s still important for anyone travelling abroad to plan carefully before you travel, be aware of any restrictions at your destination and behave sensibly and appropriately throughout your journey.
Testing and vaccination requirements can change for different destinations and at any time, so it’s crucial to check the COVID-19 rules and regulations of your travel country until your departure date.
Please note that there are no longer any Covid-19 testing centres available at Heathrow. However, you can explore alternative testing options in your local community, private clinics, or healthcare providers. Ensure that the chosen testing provider meets the requirements specified by your destination country.
Travel insurance is not an irrelevant expense or an unwanted hassle, it:
- Covers you in case of an emergency – such as illness, injury, lost/stolen luggage, cancelled flights, damaged electronics or any other unexpected circumstance.
- Gives you access to first-rate assistance services – helping you to find the best hospital on foreign shores, fill out any claims and anything else you may require.
- Offers all-important peace of mind – allowing you to enjoy your trip more.
Double-check you have all your documents in a safe but accessible place in your hand luggage, including passport/visas, boarding passes, vaccination certificate, health insurance cards/documents and travel insurance information. It’s also a good idea to make copies of all your documents in case you misplace your bag/purse/wallet.
You never know when you’ll get access to another charge point and when you’ll need to access information on your phone.
Where you can, you should download any documentation to your smartphone, including vaccination passes and boarding passes. Fewer documents to juggle and less stuff for busy airport staff to handle.
You can track flights, access live queue times, book parking, discover shopping and dining and even pre-order your food or beverages on the Heathrow app, making it the ideal travel companion.
You know the drill: wash your hands regularly, cover your nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze and try to behave in a mindful way towards other passengers at all times.
- Extra face masks
- Hand sanitiser
- Disinfectant wipes
- Personal water bottle
Let's not forget travelling is all about having fun.
So be mindful of others in busy environments, be kind to other passengers where you can and do everything possible to have the best trip you can.
Bon voyage! ✈️
