Travel Advice

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – for updated travel information regarding Coronavirus, entry requirements and any other help and support please see the UK government website. The NHS Fit for Travel website also offers very good advice.

For returning or entering the UK if you are vaccinated you need to have booked and paid for Day 2 Lateral Flow Antigen Test. If not vaccinated you need additional tests. Boots offer a good service and provide lots of clear information.

Covid requirements are changing so do read the advice.

Insurance is essential – see below if you need help from a WalkingWomen partner.

EmeraldLife Travel Insurance:

The UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) lets you get state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. If you have a UK European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) it will be valid until the expiry date on the card. Once it expires, you’ll need to apply for a GHIC to replace it. GHIC and EHIC do not replace travel insurance. Click on the link below to find out how to apply.

If you need help with booking tickets on public transport within the UK or further afield with ferries, flights or trains then Gates Travel based in Kendal offer a great service. Telephone 01539 720148 and mention WalkingWomen or Email:    or click on the link
