So whats new this week:
July Costa Rica and Mexico Fusion Program
- we know, Costa Rica has succumbed to the dreaded red list - but not
to beaten we have built a fusion program for this summer.
Departs 23rd July
Returns 24th August
week has been mad with Europe changing their rules 101 times but after
chaos the dust has settled on a couple of helpful gems:
To enter Spain you need 2 jabs OR a PCR covid test
Costa Rica -> Ibiza
Top tip - you can now fly from Costa Rica ( red list) to Madrid to Ibiza (green list).
If you spend 11 days in Ibiza you can then enter the UK and don't have to quarantine.
Returning from Kenya
Currently best way to get home - is to fly via Germany to Croatia.
Greece - island hopping
required to jump from island to island and no time limit on each island.
Enter Europe with ease
For no quarantine on arrival we recommend Spain, Greece or Croatia.
Entering America from Costa Rica
All you need is an esta, antigen test and address to head to on arrival.
Perfect solution to navigate the red list of Central America.
UK TransitInteresting feedback here - did you know you can be qualified as "in transit" in the UK for under 24 hours and are able to move airports in this space.
