Staying Covid Safe

How we're working to ensure your safety whilst travelling

Travel Safely with Freedom Destinations

At FREEDOM DESTINATIONS we are arranging more holidays than ever for 2021. We believe travel will be just as much fun, and even safer if the right precautions are taken, and we have worked hard with our suppliers to ensure that they are.

We have introduced simple measures, such as antiviral cleaning of vehicles, reduced numbers on tours and hand sanitisers wherever you go, so that you can enjoy the excitement of overseas travel and stay safe along the way.

Here are some of the steps we have taken to allow you to travel in confidence in 2021 and beyond.
