Overseas Tours and Travel in 2021 and beyond
Following numerous Government updates, it now appears that international travel is finally becoming easier.

In terms of how this affects the tours that we are still offering for 2021, much of it is still very much a watch and wait to see how things develop in terms of the vaccination programme across the world. We are now very pleased to be starting to run overseas tours again.


We are still offering numerous UK destinations for 2022 as well as day and evening tours in Devon. Devon specialities include Cirl Bunting, Dartford Warbler, Dipper, Nightjar and more. We also offer tailor made days for butterflies & dragonflies as well as daily evening beaver & otter tours.  Visit our friends at Devon Beaver Tours for more details: Devon Beaver & Wildlife Tours

If you are considering travelling overseas again, then you may find the following summary helpful.

What to expect when travelling by air now?
In addition to the now expected face coverings, hand sanitising stations and social distancing, the following are just a few points that are now becoming normal practice at airports:

  • Evidence of a negative PCR Test for Covid-19 is becoming a mandatory requirement for many international flights before being granted access to board your flight.
  • Test centres will become a normal formality at UK airports where these certificates can be obtained prior to departure. 
  • Temperature checks on arrival at airports.
  • You can read the latest guidance from the Foreign on safer air travel can be found on the FCDO website.

Travel Insurance
Most travel insurance companies now have varying degrees of Covid cover and need careful reading of their policies to be sure of what exactly is covered.

Cancellations & Refunds due to Covid-19
If we are forced to cancel a tour due to FCDO Travel Advice, we will offer you:
1 – an automatic credit transfer to reserve a place on the same tour departing on a future date.
2 – a credit transfer to use on a different Wise Birding tour in the future.
3 – or a full refund, less any payments made on your behalf that we are unable to recover. See Covid-19 clause in T&Cs
Please note if you choose to cancel your holiday before we officially cancel a tour, our standard booking terms & conditions will apply.

Finally, we would like to thank all our customers for their continued support and trust in Wise Birding Holidays and we very much look forward to travelling with you again very soon.
