Choosing your holiday

Choosing your holiday

Selecting your destination and hotel with easyJet holidays is almost as exciting as the holiday itself, and gives you something to look forward to. When looking for that perfect trip, it helps to know what to expect and how things may be different to make sure it’s right for you and your party.

There are plenty of choices when it comes to where you may want to go and all of the destinations offer something different. Do you want it hot and close to usthe beach in a familiar country, or do you want to fully embrace the local culture somewhere new?

Our destinations pages can tell point out some of the local interests and things to do, but to help you choose, take a look at the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) website as it offers up to date travel advice for all of our destinations on local laws, customs, entry requirements and so much more

Another great source of information to help you decide and plan for your holiday can be found here on ABTA’s websiteThey cover travel money, lone travellers, greener travel, vaccinations and how to avoid travel related fraud.

Medically, some destinations require specific vaccinations that you may need to take well in advance of your travel date. You can check the NHS website for up to date travel health information that covers everything else health wise you might want to consider in choosing your destination. You can also visit the UK Government’s Travel Health Pro website.

If you’re travelling with a disability, health or mental health condition and can’t find the information you need to help you decide, don’t worry. We understand that not every destination or hotel works for everyone and so if you have any questions or concerns get in touch and we will be only too happy to help guide you to your perfect holiday

If you take regular medication its worth planning ahead to make sure you have enough to cover you for your holiday and a bit extra to cover those unforeseen circumstances.

Having the right insurance is vital and it’s worth thinking about when you’re choosing your holiday so that it’s in place well in advance of your planned travel times. Consider the activities and adventures you might want to do and have when your there so that everyone travelling is comprehensively covered. The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) only entitles you to basic state medical care in participating countries and won’t help get you home, so if you plan to do some water sports or even just a bus trip to the local markets, check that your policy will cover you.

You can get your insurance from easyJet.com with our partner Columbus, or from any reputable supplier. Take the details with you and leave a copy with your nearest and dearest just in case.

Some destinations have attitudes towards LBGTQ which may be different to those in the UK and so you may want to check this. You can visit the FCDO website for further advice.
