The safety of both passengers and colleagues has always been Heathrow’s number one priority. The airport has several COVID-secure measures in place to make sure everyone has a safe journey including: 

 

- Enhance cleaning regimes including Hygiene Technicians, UV robots and other anti-viral technologies to ensure continuous disinfection across terminals

- Dedicated COVID marshals to enforce social distancing

- 600 hand sanitiser stations 

 

Due to the emergence of a new Coronavirus variant, the UK Government have advised that fully vaccinated passengers arriving into England must:

 

Take a PCR test no later than 2 days after their arrival.

- Self isolate until they receive their result.

- If a passenger tests positive, they must isolate for 10 days.

- If a passenger tests negative, they can leave self isolation.

 

Passengers arriving from a country on the red list must book a managed quarantine hotel.

 

Passengers who are not fully vaccinated must continue to follow separate guidance.

 

As countries may change their entry requirements, we advise customers to check the UK Government website for up to date information.

  • Costa do Estoril

    Costa do Estoril travel guide

    Overview

    The Estoril Coast, stretching west from Lisbon, boasts a rich past and sunny climate. It has a wide range of Blue Flag beaches and a beautiful countryside with verdant hills dropping down to the sea.

    Once known as the Sun Coast, the Costa do Estoril region has long been popular with expats and is dotted with beach resorts like Cascais and Estoril. Up in the hills lie the historic retreats of Mafra and Sintra. Sintra was one of the favourite summer retreats of the royal family, and there are pretty winelands in Carcavelos and Colares. Between the Sintra hills and the Atlantic Ocean is the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for both its natural beauty and cultural interest. On the coast, a lighthouse marks the westernmost point of continental Europe at Cabo da Roca. Additionally, Costa do Estoril was once a spa location favoured by royal exiles from Europe during the World Wars and today is the flagship of Portuguese tourism.

    The Costa de Estoril on Portugal's west coast has cold and rainy winters with warm weather between May and September. Even during the height of summer, temperatures are pleasant, seldom rising more than 80°F (27°C), and moderated by cool sea breezes.
