Winter sun is on! Canaries and Maldives join safe list

Added 23/10/2020

A winter sun holiday is now a realistic prospect to those of us who are itching to get away.  The government has announced that the Canary Islands and the Maldives have been added to the safe list of countries we can travel to.

This is good news, not only will tour operators make more flights and holidays available, it also means that you will be able to get travel insurance much more easily and cheaply.

Although there is travel insurance available if you choose to travel against FCDO advice, it may not be suitable for your needs, especially if you have existing medical conditions or are on the more mature side!

We are really pleased that policies from can now cover the Canaries and the Maldives to enable those that want to get some winter sun, the opportunity to do so with proper travel insurance protection in place.  



Please do monitor the government advice, because if your destination comes off the safe list before you depart cover would no longer be valid.  In those circumstances we are happy to move your single trip insurance to a new destination or dates.

Where else could you go this winter?

Madeira and Greece are on the safe list and can offer some lovely winter warmth.
