Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Passenger information

Update 1st February 2021 -

Firstly, a heartfelt thank you to all our travellers who have deferred their travel dates (some more than once!) allowing us to keep bookings live. You still have a trip to look forward to and our local operators in South America have the reassurance that tourism will return one day!

While our holiday operations in South America are temporarily on hold due to the UK lockdown and travel ban, our local operators are busy behind the scenes getting ready to deliver high quality, responsible and safe holidays when it is possible to do so.  Please check the Foreign Commonwealth Office website for up to date travel restrictions: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice

We are taking bookings for departures from September 2021 onwards and have made some changes to our booking policy so that you can book with confidence:

  • Low Deposit. We will only ask for the minimum amount needed to secure your reservations
  • Flexible Dates. We will not charge for date changes necessitated by the pandemic.
  • Financial protection. It is more important than ever to book a financially protected package holiday through a UK tour operator. See full details here: https://www.discoversouthamerica.co.uk/financial-protection

I look forward to planning your South American adventure!
