Covid-19 - before you travel

If you want to know more about the government’s traffic light system for international travel, along with which destinations are on which list, head to our travel information page.

If you’d like to know more about the flexible options for your holiday depending on which colour list your destination is on, choose from the options below:

• What if my destination is on the ‘red’ list?

• What if my destination is on the ‘amber’ list?

What if my destination is on the ‘green’ list?

In line with our three key Covid commitments, which is part of our Protection Promise, we are offering additional flexibility for customers who are due to travel up to and including 30 September 2021, whose holidays  we anticipate may be affected by the government traffic light list. 

Whichever list your holiday destination appears on, or is moved to before you travel, you’ll be covered under our industry leading Protection Promise and you can make changes to your booking or cancel it up to 28 days before travel. We’ll return your deposit back to you as easyJet holidays credit and refund any further payments to your original method of payment for your booking. Login to your account and view your booking to find out more.

Once you get to within 28 days of your departure, if your holiday destination is on the red list we’ve added even more flexibility. You’ll be offered the option of fee free changes or to cancel for easyJet holidays credit. If the destination doesn’t come off the red list, we’re really sorry but we’ll have to cancel your holiday no later than seven days before you’re due to travel and we'll refund you in full to your original method of payment for your booking. 

And to put your mind at ease, the same will apply if the government makes any short notice changes or additions to the red list within seven days of when you’re due to travel.

Once you get to within 28 days of your departure, and your holiday destination is on the amber list, you can make fee free changes or cancel your holiday for credit right up to 24 hours before travel. This means that if you change your mind about your trip, or the measures for your return to the UK are too restrictive for you, you’ll have the flexibility to quickly cancel your holiday and book a new one – whether that’s for now or next year.

As always, if you want to travel on your holiday as planned, you’ll need to make sure you meet any requirements to enter your destination along with any requirements for your return to the UK. You can login to your account and view your booking, where we’ve included links to essential reading to help you understand the health and entry requirements for your trip.

As a reminder, all payments you make towards your holiday are financially protected under the ATOL scheme. Balance payments can be made online. If your balance is not paid, as required, we'll assume that you no longer wish to travel and will cancel your holiday.

You can rest assured that if the government makes any short notice changes to the list your destination is on, we’ve got you covered. You can read more about our options for red list destinations here and amber destinations here

 

Many holiday destinations now require you to have and submit a negative Covid-19 test before arrival. Typically you’ll need to have had the test carried out (and to have received a negative test result) within 72 hours of arrival at the destination airport.

You can visit the FCDO website to check the entry requirements for your holiday destination. Please note that it is your responsibility to meet the entry requirements for your destination.

We've been working with Randox, who offer COVID-19 PCR home test kits that can be dropped off to one of their drop-off points across the UK, which then go direct to their accredited laboratories. Once the test kit is received by their laboratory, they aim to provide results within 12-24 hours. The cost per home test kit is £60. Click here to visit their website. When you place your order, enter discount code easyJet2021 at checkout.

It’s worth noting that while other tests are available, it’s only the PCR test which is currently recognised and widely accepted at this time. 

You can visit the provider’s link and order the number of home PCR test kits that you need. 

What can you expect? Here’s the process:

Purchase the kit(s) online (do this a few weeks before your holiday if you can but you will need to take the test within the timeframes stated by the test provider)

Pay close attention to the detailed instructions for each step of the process

Register your kit online 

Do the test in the comfort of your own home 

Return your sample

Receive your results

Please note that this service is provided by accredited third parties and not easyJet holidays. Should you decide to purchase any Covid-testing services, the service provider’s terms and conditions will apply. We are not advertising Covid testing services as a travel service or as part of an easyJet holiday and we are not responsible for the quality and timeliness of the testing services.

If you have a question about testing on your return journey to the UK, you can find out more here.

In line with our Covid commitments, which are part of our Protection Promise, we will cancel any holidays where the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advises against all but essential travel. We’re constantly reviewing bookings ahead of planned travel dates to give holidays as great a chance as possible to go ahead.

If it’s likely your holiday will be impacted we’ll be in touch to discuss your options, and unless you’ve already taken action to cancel or change your booking, we will make a carefully considered decision on whether your holiday is able to go ahead in the week leading up to your departure date.

If the continued uncertainty in the world may mean this holiday isn’t the right one for you, we’ve got you covered. As part of our industry leading easyJet holidays Protection Promise, if you cancel 28 days or more before departure, we’ll return your deposit back to you as easyJet holidays credit and refund any further payments to your original method of payment for your booking.

In line with our Covid commitments, which are part of our Protection Promise, we will cancel any holidays where at the point of departure, there’s a known routine quarantine requirement in destination and providing proof of a negative Covid-19 test won’t allow you to go without this quarantine period.

It’s essential you read our Covid-19 information page and the FCDO Travel Checklist. It’s your responsibility to ensure that your party meets your destination country FCDO entry requirements.  Due to Covid-19, this may include (but is not limited to) completing and submitting any documentation in advance to show at the airport, proof of a negative Covid-19 test and/or complying with any applicable vaccination rules. Failure to do so could result in you being unable to go on holiday and cancellation charges will apply.

If you have an existing easyJet holiday, you can login to your account and view your booking. We’ve included links to essential reading to help you understand the health and entry requirements for your trip. Please take the time to review all the resources we’ve made available.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you read, understand and act on the FCDO advice regarding entry requirements for your destination before you depart, particularly as governmental advice and policy is subject to change at short notice. You can sign up via the government site for alerts for the country you are travelling to.

We’re continually working through how Covid-19 may impact future bookings, making sure all elements of your holiday are able to go ahead as planned - including your flight and hotel reservations.

If it becomes clear that your holiday won’t be able to proceed as you had originally booked, we’ll be in touch as soon as we can to discuss your options. As a first option, we’ll usually try to find you alternative flight or hotel arrangements, but this may not always be possible. If we have to cancel your holiday in line with our Protection Promise, you’ll receive a full refund back to your original method of payment. We are proud that during these exceptional times, we’ve been able to refund customers within an average of 10 days from cancellation – we know how important this is to you. Please bear in mind that we’re working through our holidays in departure date order.

We’re continuing to closely follow announcements from the UK government, along with authorities in our destinations, to understand the impact of vaccines on international travel and entry requirements.

If a Covid-19 vaccine becomes mandatory for your holiday destination, and providing evidence of a negative Covid-19 test result before departure is not sufficient for entry, we’ll be in touch to discuss your options for your booking. 

As always, while we wait for more detailed information, we recommend that you continue to read, understand and act on UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office advice regarding entry requirements for your destination and the steps you may need to take before you travel.

We’ll always be as flexible and supportive as possible, so if you or another member of your party are prevented from travelling due to a positive Covid-19 test, or are otherwise required to isolate, you’ll have the option to cancel your holiday without fees for easyJet holidays credit. Please get in touch with our team on 0330 551 5160 who will be able to support you.

You should still ensure that you have sufficient travel insurance cover in place (from the time of booking) to cover you/other members of your party if you have to cancel your holiday.

We will do all we can to be flexible and support you if you’re unable to travel due to local restriction tiers. We ask you to get in touch with us as soon as possible on 0330 551 5160 to discuss your options.

Covid-19 - while you're on holiday

It’s not just entry requirements for your holiday destination that you need to consider, but also any steps ahead of your return home as part of the government’s traffic light system for international travel. Make sure you visit the government website for further information on the necessary steps, which can change at short notice between booking and travel.

In all cases, you’ll need to submit a passenger locator form before you arrive back home, and will be required to provide a negative Covid-19 test within a set period before your return to the country. You should ensure that you have adequate travel insurance to cover any costs you may incur if your return home is delayed due to not being able to produce a negative Covid-19 test.

You'll also need to make sure you meet any entry requirements for your holiday destination, find out more.

During these new and uncertain times, we’re here to do all we can to give you peace of mind and comfort – so that you can book with confidence and so your holiday can go ahead as you planned. You can find more information on the steps we’re taking on our Covid-19 commitments page, where we detail our key commitments and have made a video explaining the measures we’re putting in place.

If you’re looking for some advice on how you can ensure you travel safely given the new environment we’re all in, make sure you check out our COVID travel tips page.

Finally, we’ve built our customer safety and wellbeing centre to give you the reassurance that our team of experts have made your holiday as safe as possible and to give you some pointers to help you keep safe and well.

Make sure to visit our COVID-19 information page before you go on your holiday. We’ve provided more information on our key commitments, a video explaining the changes you can expect on your trip and links to the essential reading you need to understand and act on before you go.

Our teams have been working incredibly hard to introduce a range of measures to help keep you safe and allow you to fly with confidence. We also ask anyone with Covid-19 symptoms not to travel or go to the airport.

If there is a confirmed case of Covid-19 on your flight, we will follow the relevant public health guidance. This could mean that you are contacted by governmental authorities using the details provided on your passenger locator form where you have been in close contact with the confirmed case. Close contact definitions may vary between destinations but it could be having sat within a couple of rows of someone with Covid-19. You will then need to follow the procedures set out by the government for the country you are travelling to. This will most likely involve self-isolation in your booked hotel and could be confinement to your hotel room pending a Covid-19 test or self-isolation at Government appointed hotel pending testing.  

Just as is the case at home, if you test positive for Covid-19 on holiday you will be required to self-isolate in your booked hotel under strict conditions, or be quarantined at a government appointed hotel for a defined period, this could be for two weeks. It is most likely that food and drinks will be brought and left outside your room door and you will be required to stay put until you are allowed to travel home.

In the same way as for our flights, we’ve also been working incredibly hard to introduce a range of measures to help keep you safe and allow you to holiday with confidence. We also ask anyone with Covid-19 symptoms not to travel.

If there is a confirmed case of Covid-19 where you are staying, your hotel will follow the relevant public health guidance and government advice. Each country will have its own procedures, but it is likely that the confirmed case and anyone identified as having been in close contact via the track and trace system will be required to self-isolate. This will most likely involve self-isolation in your booked hotel and could be confinement to your hotel room pending a Covid-19 test or self-isolation at Government appointed hotel pending testing.  

Each country has its own procedure for testing. In many countries the test would take place immediately after the track and trace process has identified a person is a close contact case. Elsewhere testing might only take place to allow release from self-isolation, which could be confinement to your hotel room, in time for your departing flight back home. When it comes to results, usually the tests take 24 hours to produce a result but this can be longer in certain countries.

If you need to self-isolate at your hotel or a government-appointed hotel, in most cases the government of the country you are in will cover the basic costs including your accommodation, food and soft drinks. However, it’s worth thinking about how much money you’ll need while you’re away and planning a contingency amount to cover any unexpected costs that may arise or where a government is not covering these costs. Please also ensure you have adequate travel insurance cover.

We want you to be confident that your holiday is right for you. Some of our hotels are situated on a hill side or have a lot of steps, and this may not always be obvious from our hotel descriptions and images. If you have any mobility issues, require any special assistance, or want to understand more about a particular destination, resort or hotel - please get in touch with our team before you book.

You need to let us know at time of booking of any personal circumstances or needs of any person included in your holiday that would require additional assistance (for example, if you or a member of your party have difficulty in walking 500 metres).

As with all holiday companies, our pricing is demand-led, which means that as more seats are booked on a flight or we see a number of rooms booked in a certain hotel, the price of our holidays can increase - particularly the closer it is to the date of departure.    

If you think you may be experiencing an error when going through our booking journey, contact our team who can try and help.

Preparing for your holiday

It’s essential you read our Covid-19 information page and the FCDO Travel Checklist. It’s your responsibility to ensure that your party meets your destination country FCDO entry requirements.  Due to Covid-19, this may include (but is not limited to) completing and submitting any documentation in advance to show at the airport, proof of a negative Covid-19 test and/or complying with any applicable vaccination rules. Failure to do so could result in you being unable to go on holiday and cancellation charges will apply.

If you have an existing easyJet holiday, you can login to your account and view your booking. We’ve included links to essential reading to help you understand the health and entry requirements for your trip. Please take the time to review all the resources we’ve made available.

Governmental advice and policy is subject to change at short notice and so you should keep checking the FCDO page for your destination. You can sign up via the government site for alerts for the country you are travelling to.
 
You'll also need to make sure you meet entry requirements for your return to the UK, find out more.

It’s not just entry requirements for your holiday destination that you need to consider, but also any steps ahead of your return home as part of the government’s traffic light system for international travel. Make sure you visit the government website for further information on the necessary steps, which can change at short notice between booking and travel.

In all cases, you’ll need to submit a passenger locator form before you arrive back home, and will be required to provide a negative Covid-19 test within a set period before your return to the country. You should ensure that you have adequate travel insurance to cover any costs you may incur if your return home is delayed due to not being able to produce a negative Covid-19 test.

New rules apply for travel to Europe following the UK's withdrawal from the EU, and you may need to take extra steps when travelling to a European destination. You should follow UK government travel advice and it’s vital you visit the government website before you travel for the latest information on new requirements, which can include your passport being valid for at least six months from your departure date and it being less than ten years old.

You should check your passport validity online on the government’s dedicated page as you might need to renew it earlier than planned. It’s your responsibility to ensure you meet the criteria for your destination. If you fail to comply with the new requirements this will likely result in you being unable to travel on your holiday, or being denied entry on arrival in your destination.

If you’ve been issued with a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before 1st January 2021, this will continue to be valid until the expiry date. If you apply for a card from this date onwards, you will be issued with a new UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) instead of an EHIC. You can apply for this on the NHS website. Make sure you check the FCDO advice for your destination to see if the EHIC or GHIC is accepted.

You can make requests for your hotel when booking your holiday online. Once you get to the Extras page our online booking journey, you can select the requests that you’d like to add to your trip - please note that your hotel can’t guarantee that your request will be provided.

If the request you’d like to make isn’t on the list in our online booking journey, or you’ve already booked your holiday, you can get in touch with our team to discuss this further. 

We want you to be confident that your holiday is right for you. Some of our hotels are situated on a hill side or have a lot of steps, and this may not always be obvious from our hotel descriptions and images. If you have any mobility issues, require any special assistance, or want to understand more about a particular destination, resort or hotel - please get in touch with our team before you book.

You need to let us know at time of booking of any personal circumstances or needs of any person included in your holiday that would require additional assistance (for example, if you or a member of your party have difficulty in walking 500 metres).

Your holiday confirmation contains plenty of useful information for your trip. This includes a summary of your holiday details, more information on how to get your arrival and departure transfer along with other useful tips. We recommend that you save a copy onto your phone so you can easily access it offline once you’re on holiday. Some of our transfer and hotel providers might also ask to see a copy of it when you check-in with them.

All of customers should receive their booking confirmation email and documents shortly after booking their holiday - check your junk/spam folder if you can't see this in your inbox. If you haven’t received this, you can login to your account and view your booking, where you’ll also be able to see and download your travel documents (including your ATOL certificate). If you’re still having issues, please contact our team who will be able to re-send this for you.

Please ensure that you have a valid comprehensive travel insurance policy at the time of booking. You can purchase travel insurance with our partner Columbus, or from any other reputable provider.

easyJet holidays customers can add their flight to the easyJet mobile app 30 days before their departure date. To view your full holiday details, you can login to the easyJet holidays website.

When you book an easyJet holiday, you'll be issued with two reference numbers; your holiday booking reference which starts with the number 1, and your easyJet flight reference.

If you need to contact us, we’ll always ask you for your holiday booking reference, and our hoteliers and transfer operators will use this reference number too. When at the airport, we may refer to your easyJet flight reference.

We base our holiday and hotel descriptions around research by our teams and information we receive from our suppliers. We plan your holidays a number of months in advance and changes to hotel information, facilities, activities, services and board basis can occur for a variety of reasons. Hotels could also be affected by building work or renovations. If we’re made aware of changes, we try to update our website as needed. 

If you’ve already booked and we consider that a change to your holiday is important, we’ll try and tell you about it before you go.

Cabin baggage and hold luggage

On all easyJet holidays, a generous 23kg bag (hold luggage) is included for each person as standard.

We’ve made some changes to our cabin bag policy to help improve boarding and punctuality and give customers certainty of what they are allowed to bring on board. You're able to bring on board one small cabin bag (max 45 x 36 x 20cm including wheels and handles) per person, which must fit under the seat in front of you.

Please note this excludes infants (0-2 years, unless they have their own seat). If you’re travelling with an infant who will be seated on your lap, only an additional baby changing bag is allowed for the infant (max 45 x 36 x 20cm) and this must be placed under the seat in front of you. You can find out more on our flying with children page.

If you’ve purchased an Up front or Extra legroom seat, you’ll also be able to bring a large cabin bag (max 56 x 45 x 25 cm including wheels and handles) on board, which must fit in the overhead locker. You’ll be able to purchase these seats (subject to availability) for your easyJet holiday when you check-in for your flight, which is normally available around 30 days before departure.

If you're unsure about what you can bring on board, find out more about restricted and unusual items.

With limited space for cabin bags onboard, we know our customers may have experienced a delay at the departure gate due to bags being offloaded. This is because we previously allowed our customers to arrive at the gate with one large cabin bag on a first-come, first-served for space in the overhead lockers – with any remaining bags being placed in the hold.

This meant we were often not able to get away on time, and created unnecessary frustration for customers too. Our new policy will enable customers to have certainty of what they will have with them on board, continue to provide the choice for an additional cabin bag for those who need them, as well as reduce any associated delays so this should lead to improved punctuality for all customers.

All of our holidays continue to include a generous 23kg hold bag per person, excluding infants (0-2 years, unless they have their own seat).

You can bring on board one small cabin bag per person (max 45 x 36 x 20cm including wheels and handles) on board, which must fit under the seat in front of you. As you booked before our cabin bag announcement on 1st December 2020, we’ve also sent you an email with more details about an offer to go Hands Free.

If you’ve purchased an Up front or Extra legroom seat, you’ll also be able to bring a large cabin bag (max 56 x 45 x 25 cm including wheels and handles) on board, which must fit in the overhead locker. You’ll be able to purchase these seats (subject to availability) for your easyJet holiday when you check-in for your flight, which is normally available around 30 days before departure.

 

If you want to take a large cabin bag (max 56 x 45 x 25 cm including wheels and handles) on board, you’ll need to purchase an Up front or Extra legroom seat. Your bag must be able to fit in the overhead locker. 

You’ll be able to purchase these seats (subject to availability) for your easyJet holiday when you check-in for your flight, which is normally available around 30 days before departure. We'll send you an email reminder when check-in is available.

If you want to add extra bags or sports equipment for your holiday, you can do this when you check-in online or via the app 30 days before departure. There may be an additional cost to take these items on your transfer to and from the hotel.

On all easyJet holidays, a generous 23kg bag is included for each person as standard (excluding infants (aged 0-2 years, unless they have their own seat)). If you’re travelling with family or friends on the same flight and booking, you can pool your total weight allowance. No single item can weigh more than 32kg. Maximum total size (length + width + height) = under 275cm.

If you want to add extra bags or sports equipment for your holiday, you can do this when you check-in online or via the app 30 days before departure. There may be an additional cost to take these items on your transfer to and from the hotel.

Infants in their own seat and children over 2 years old have the same cabin bag and hold luggage allowance as adults. See the baggage allowance question for more details.

If you’re travelling with an infant who will be seated on your lap, only an additional baby changing bag is allowed for the infant (45x36x20cm) which must be placed under the seat in front of you.

For every infant or child you can take up to two of the following items on your flight:

• Travel cot

• Pushchair

• Double pushchairs

• Buggy

• Car seat

• Collapsible or non-collapsible pram

• Booster seat

• Baby back carrier

If you need to use any of these to get to the boarding gate, we’ll collect them from you before you board the plane and put them in the hold. They can then be collected at the baggage reclaim when you arrive.

We know how much kids love their Trunki, and they can continue to take their Trunki as part of their cabin bag allowance. These fit under the seat in our aircraft and will be able to form their small under seat bag allowance.  Baby changing bags will continue to be allowed as an additional free item and we have factored space for these on board.

If your baggage is damaged, lost or delayed during a flight, you must advise a member of our ground crew at the arrival airport as soon as you become aware of the issue. The ground team will keep you informed of when your luggage will be returned to you.

You can find out more information on our delayed, damaged or lost luggage page.

Visa and passport information

New rules apply for travel to Europe following the UK's withdrawal from the EU, and you may need to take extra steps when travelling to a European destination. You should follow UK government travel advice and it’s vital you visit the government website before you travel for the latest information on new requirements, which can include your passport being valid for at least six months from your departure date and it being less than ten years old.

You should check your passport validity online on the government’s dedicated page as you might need to renew it earlier than planned. It’s your responsibility to ensure you meet the criteria for your destination. If you fail to comply with the new requirements this will likely result in you being unable to travel on your holiday, or being denied entry on arrival in your destination.

If you’ve been issued with a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before 1st January 2021, this will continue to be valid until the expiry date. If you apply for a card from this date onwards, you will be issued with a new UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) instead of an EHIC. You can apply for this on the NHS website. Make sure you check the FCDO advice for your destination to see if the EHIC or GHIC is accepted.

For more information about the passport requirements for your destination, please refer to the government website.

It is your responsibility to secure the appropriate passport, visa and other immigration documents required for your holiday, and / or to comply with any health formalities required. Your passport needs to be in good condition and signed. Some countries require that passports are valid for a minimum period beyond your trip, usually three or six months. We do not accept any responsibility if you cannot travel because you have not complied with the passport, visa, and immigration requirements and / or you fail to comply with all applicable health requirements.

If you are travelling to Europe after 1 January 2021, for most destinations you must have at least six months left on an adult or child passport to travel. You will need to check the latest government advice regarding passports (and visas) relating to Brexit. You can find more information on our Brexit page.

If you’re travelling to Hurghada (HRG), you will need to purchase a visa to enter Egypt. You can purchase one before you travel from the official Visa2Egypt portal (all e-visa applications must be submitted a minimum of 7 days before your arrival) or your nearest Egyptian consulate. These visas are valid for stays of up to three months. 

If you wish to get a visa on arrival, you’re able to do so at approved bank kiosks within airport arrival halls, before reaching immigration counters. The visa fee is normally US$25, payable in in pounds sterling, US dollars or euros - this fee has been temporarily waived for tourists entering into Hurghada up to 30th April 2021. These visas are valid for up to 30 days. There’s no need to buy a visa from an agent, as they will often charge more than US$25 for a visa.

For more information, please refer to the latest FCDO advice for Egypt.

If you’re a British passport holder, you won’t need a visa for stays of up to three months.

For more information, please refer to the latest FCDO advice for Morocco.

Transfers

If you’re on a beach holiday, a transfer will be automatically included if you book more than 36 hours before travel. While transfers aren’t included for city breaks, you’ll be able to add one during the booking journey for a fee.

We have two different transfer options available: 

Standard transfer - this is a shared transfer with other travellers. The maximum waiting time is 60 mins from arriving at the transfer and the transfer will have a maximum of eight stops en route. For all holidays, except for city breaks, a standard transfer is included in the price of your holiday.

Private transfer - this is a private transfer for you and your party. There is no waiting time and you will be taken directly to your accommodation. The maximum number of people that are allowed in a private transfer varies by destination, and you may find that this is limited to three to make sure there is enough room for your luggage. This may also mean that if you're travelling in a group larger than three, we may provide more than one vehicle.

If you have booked a transfer, please refer to your holiday confirmation or 72 hours to go email for details on how to find your transfer - we'll also include information on how we'll let you know about your departure transfer pick up time.

The day before you’re going home, we’ll contact you to let you know your departure details. This will probably be via SMS or via an e-mail to your hotel reception - you’ll find details of how we plan to reach you on your holiday confirmation or your 72 hours to go email. You don’t need to call us, just relax and enjoy your holiday and we will get the transfer details to you. If you have any issues on the day you’re going home, you’ll find a dedicated telephone number for our local transfer partner on your holiday documents.

Our team will receive the pick-up information at the same time as you, so please don’t call us until 24 hours before your flight, as we won’t be able to give you any further information.

Unfortunately you won’t be able to. Our transport providers are the local experts and will use their knowledge of the destination and airport experience to calculate your transfer pick up time to ensure your journey to the airport is stress free and that you arrive with enough time to drop off your bags and clear security.

If you’re booking within 36 hours of departure, unfortunately we won’t be able to provide you with a transfer. Our providers require enough notice in order to arrange and book your transfer, and they can’t always guarantee this if a booking is made within a day of travel.

Please make sure you plan out your route to your hotel before travel and always arrange any transfer with a reputable provider.

While you’re on holiday

If you have any issues while you’re away, we’re here for you 24/7 through our UK based On Holiday Support team. You can reach our team on +44330 551 5160. It’s important that you do give us the chance to put any issues right at the earliest opportunity during your holiday, otherwise this may affect your rights under your booking if you later raise a complaint after you return home.

If you or one of your party fall ill or have an accident during your holiday, seek medical advice and report it to reception immediately. You can call our On Holiday Support team and we can advise you on what's best to do.

We pride ourselves on being a modern holiday company. We know when you’re away, your time is precious. For this reason we won’t have a welcome meeting, traditional holiday reps, or notice boards or information books. Instead, if you’re on one of our beach breaks, we’ll be on hand at the airport to meet you and get you safely on your way to your hotel. If you have any problems during your stay you’ll be able to contact our team 24/7. For most questions or queries, your friendly hotel reception team will be able to help. 

When it’s time to go home, we’ll let you know your pick-up details the day before and you’ll find out how we’ll send this information to you by looking at your holiday documents.

Selected hotels do ask for a refundable deposit when checking-in. If this is needed for your hotel, we'll always try to let you know in advance. This deposit amount is decided by the hotels directly rather than by us.

Tourist taxes may apply when staying in some cities or countries.  Usually these taxes contribute to the local infrastructure and tourism development and are payable locally when checking into your hotel.  The amount due will vary between countries (and sometimes regions or cities within each country), and is normally dependent on the type and official rating of accommodation and the length of your stay. Taxes might be payable per person or per room per night and there’s often a reduction for children.

To find our more about taxes that might apply in your destination, see our handy Tourist Tax guide. This is a guide only [correct at 4th December 2020] and subject to change without notice.

Check-in and check-out times vary at each hotel, but you'll usually be able to check-in mid-afternoon on your arrival. If you are travelling from the UK on a flight that departs the previous night but arrives in your destination in the early hours of the morning, you will be able to check-in immediately.

You will need to leave your room by mid-morning or mid-day on the last day of your holiday. Your hotel reception can confirm the times to you when you arrive. 

These check-out times will apply even if you’re departing on a later flight. Late check-out may be available at a charge but you’d need to ask the hotel directly about this.

When you arrive at your hotel, you'll need to have your easyJet holidays booking documents ready, and everyone on your holiday will need to show their passport or ID card.

What’s included in your holiday will often depend on the board basis you select – see below for more information on what’s included:

• Room only – any meals at your hotel aren’t included in your package.

• Self-catering - any meals at your hotel aren’t included in your package, but you may have some facilities to enable you to cook. Check your room descriptions carefully to see what’s included.

• Bed and breakfast – this includes your breakfast, but any other meals, snacks and drinks are payable locally.

• Half board – this includes two meals a day, normally breakfast and dinner.

• Half board plus - this includes two meals a day, normally breakfast and dinner, and typically a glass of wine, beer or soft drink with your meals.

• Full board – this includes three meals a day, your breakfast, lunch and dinner.

• Full board plus - this includes three meals a day, your breakfast, lunch and dinner, and typically a glass of wine, beer or soft drink with your meals.

See below for more information around all-inclusive holidays.

If you want to get the best value from your holiday budget, an all-inclusive holiday is the perfect choice.

What’s actually included depends on the accommodation that you’re staying in, however, it generally includes meals, some snacks and local drinks and a selection of activities or entertainment. 

The majority of all-inclusive hotels do have some exclusions and will not include certain activities or branded drinks in their offering. We may highlight that certain facilities are payable locally – you’ll have to pay to use these when you arrive. Some bars and restaurants may also not be free of charge.

Our descriptions are based on information from the hotel management, please allow for some facilities or activities to be altered or substituted, as hotels regularly review and update what they offer as All Inclusive, especially in low season.

You can expect the following at an all-inclusive hotel:

• Identification: on arrival you may be given an identification bracelet or card to be shown when ordering drinks, meals.  Keep this safe as you may be charged a fee if it’s lost.

• Alcohol: drink responsibly when on holiday. Hotels may limit or restrict the service of alcohol according to local laws.

• Bottled mineral water: this is usually included in all-inclusive packages but can’t be guaranteed.

• Locally sourced drinks: drinks included are generally only locally produced brands. Cocktails, international drinks/brands, premium brands and fruit juices are not available unless stated.

• Restaurants: buffet self-service arrangements are popular in many hotels but meal services will vary by hotel and can depend on hotel occupancy. Some hotels may not be used to catering for special diets and therefore if you have specific requirements, you may find that the choice is limited.

• Coming home: Access to all-inclusive facilities after you've checked out varies by hotel, but they will often provide this service until your transfer picks you up for your flight home.

Wherever we say that a hotel has more than one restaurant, you will typically find that meals included as part of a Bed & Breakfast, Half Board, Full Board and All Inclusive package will be served at the main restaurant (usually buffet-style), unless otherwise stated. Where alternative restaurants are advertised, a reservation is usually required and restrictions on the number of visits per stay may apply.

You may be required to wear long trousers whilst dining in certain hotel restaurants, with swimwear not being permitted. You can contact your hotel directly for further information.

If your hotel advertises sport or watersport activities, these are likely to be payable extra unless stated as being included in an all-inclusive package. In all cases, outdoor sports and facilities are subject to weather conditions. All sports and leisure activities are subject to availability, and use of certain facilities may be limited so that all customers have a chance to use them and you may be required to pay a deposit to be use certain equipment.  Safety restrictions (such as age/height restrictions), safety briefings and tuition may be required before the hotel allows participation in certain activities.  

At this moment easyJet holidays, are not offering any excursions to our customers and we do not recommend or endorse excursions offered by any local suppliers. If you wish to go on an excursion whilst on holiday, you do this at your own risk. 

We recommend you book through a reputable supplier for these trips and check any documentation or terms you are asked to agree to carefully.  Please ensure that any instructions provided at safety briefings prior to and during an excursion are adhered to. 

Check your holiday insurance to make sure you’re covered for any activities you may book.

• If you are planning to go scuba diving, allow at least 24 hours between your last dive and flying or travelling to altitude (over 1,000 feet).

• Jet skis and other such watercrafts should only be used with appropriate safety equipment and under the supervision of the instructor.

• Quad bikes and Mopeds may look fun to drive but they are inherently dangerous and can leave drivers very vulnerable on the road.  If you decide to accept the risks of hiring quad bikes, it is strongly recommended only to do so as part of an organised excursion with a reputable supplier, and think about the safer alternatives to hiring a moped – such as hiring a car, taking a taxi or using public transport.

• Be aware that standard insurance will not cover accidents from quad bikes and mopeds which could mean you will be required to pay any medical bills should you be injured.

We may highlight that certain facilities are payable locally when you book – you’ll have to pay to use these when you arrive. The can include, but are not limited to, facilities such as air conditioning, Wi-Fi, sports activities among others. Some bars and restaurants may also not be free of charge.
Many hotels will offer wireless networks although we can’t guarantee an uninterrupted service or the strength of the signal. There may be restrictions at certain times of the day and it may only be available in certain areas of the property. Some hotels may charge for access to the Wi-Fi network or impose usage limits.
Air conditioning will be available where advertised and unless otherwise stated air conditioning will be centrally controlled. This means it is operated at the discretion of the management, both in bedrooms and public areas. Air conditioning may be restricted to particular times of the day and to the hottest months of the summer. There may be a local charge for air conditioning in some rooms.
All of the hotels we describe as adult only are chosen with adults in mind, and have a minimum age limit of either 16 or 18 years. Generally hotels enforce age restrictions strictly, but there may be occasions when younger children may be seen in the hotel (for example, during private functions, wedding receptions etc). 
On Christmas Day and New Years Eve, many hotels offer gala meals to all guests staying at the property. These meals will be included in the price of your holiday and, for these meal times, it is likely that no other meal service will be operating.  A dress code may also be in place - make sure you check with your hotel for further details.

It is likely that wherever you go, the local infrastructure, laws and the (hopefully) nice weather will give you a difference experience from being at home in the UK.  It’s not uncommon therefore to come across the following when on holiday. 

• Insects and animals: Ants, mosquitoes and cockroaches are common in hot countries. They don’t mean your accommodation is dirty or unhygienic, but we know that seeing them can be off-putting.  Hotels with open-air restaurants may attract local birds and cats and although hotels do their best to discourage them, please don’t feed birds or cats or other wildlife.

• Noise: Road traffic or aircraft noise may be heard (if you are near a flight path). Noise is also often caused by birds and local wildlife, and by local activity such as speedboats, calls to prayer, and is often part of the travel experience.

• Resorts: In low season, resorts can be quiet with some local restaurants, bars and shops not opening. If you’d like to visit particular attractions, we recommend that you check their availability in resort as they may have to close at short notice because of the weather or for routine maintenance.

• Building work: There’s a possibility that building work may be taking place as resorts and hotels continue to develop. If we believe this is likely to have a significant effect on your hotel we’ll try and tell you at the time of booking or, if you have already booked, you’ll be contacted before departure if there’s time.

• Electricity: Depending on your location, there may be blackouts. Please be patient if this happens.

• Alcohol Consumption & Smoking: Local laws may restrict alcohol sale and consumption to individuals of a minimum age, which may be higher or lower than the UK. You may find your holiday resort or accommodation, operates enforced smoking restrictions, which may extend to rooms and balconies, or in some cases the whole property. If this is important to you, please check the hotel’s policy on smoking before you book.

We cannot stress enough how important it is take out comprehensive travel insurance at the time of booking. Before taking out the insurance, make sure you check that the policy covers the activities and sports that you may participate in. The cost of international healthcare can be significant, insurance does more than pay for it, it can also provide the support to get the best care and get you home afterwards.

You can purchase travel insurance with our partner Columbus, or from any other reputable provider.

Remember to take a copy of your policy with you, especially the emergency assistance contact number. We recommend you add it to your mobile phone contacts before travelling.

Remember that a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) only entitles you to basic state medical care in participating countries; it does not cover you for repatriation. You can apply for a GHIC on the NHS website.

Leave a copy of your travel details with your next of kin or an emergency contact.

If you’ve been issued with a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before 1st January 2021, this will continue to be valid until the expiry date. If you apply for a card from this date onwards, you will be issued with a new UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) instead of an EHIC. You can apply for this on the NHS website. Make sure you check the FCDO advice for your destination to see if the EHIC or GHIC is accepted.

Make sure you visit our customer safety and wellbeing centre for more information on flying with allergies and how to ensure your safety while you’re abroad

If you have any specific dietary requirements, it is your responsibility to ensure the hotel, restaurant or bar is aware of these on your arrival. Please ensure that your server understands what you are asking for.

After your holiday

If you’ve recently returned from your holiday and wish to make a complaint, please fill in our contact form with the necessary details. We’ll aim to respond to your complaint within 28 days.

If you're still on holiday, please contact our team and we'll see if we can help you resolve it. It’s important that you do give us the opportunity to put any issues right at the earliest opportunity during your holiday, otherwise this may affect your rights under your booking if you later raise a complaint after you return home.

If your flight has been delayed or cancelled or you were denied boarding, you might be entitled to compensation if the cause was easyJet’s responsibility. However, if the disruption was caused by weather, industrial action, air traffic control restrictions or other reasons beyond our control, you won’t be eligible for compensation.

To make your claim, please fill in our EC261 compensation claim form.
