What To Do If You Develop Covid/Covid Symptoms On Holiday

It’s very important that our guests know and follow the rules regarding what happens if you are on holiday at one of our large group self catering properties and develop symptoms of Covid-19, test positive or need to self isolate.

The best thing to do is to get yourself home as soon as possible, ideally straightaway. You will need to self isolate for 10 days - if the accommodation you’re in is available for another 10 days you may be able to stay for the duration of your self isolation period but you will have to pay to do so. If the accommodation is already booked you’ll need to make alternative arrangements.

What you must NOT do is hide or ignore your symptoms. If you have any symptoms you MUST get tested asap and you MUST tell your accommodation provider. If your test result is negative you can stay and enjoy your holiday.

And needless to say, if you’re already self isolating you cannot go on holiday.

It’s important to note that the following apply:

  • If a guest tests positive and does not self isolate they can be fined £1000, likewise if contacted by NHS Test and Trace by email, text or phone
  • If a guest has to self isolate this means all members of the household must stay at home until if the self isolation starts before your holiday
  • If a guest is pinged they are strongly advised to self isolate.
