Strike Action Travel Update for the weekend of 25th & 26th March 2023 - 24.03.23
For customers travelling to France, we're aware that several French unions have called for cross-sector strike action that may last throughout March. We're working closely with our airport and resort partners to monitor the situation. At present, we understand the extent of any strikes will be limited and we have been assured by our French operating partners that plans are being made to ensure that any disruption is minimal.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide updates of any changes. Please be reassured that your holiday will continue as planned. If we anticipate any further disruption, we will contact those impacted directly.
In addition, your local resort representative will be able to provide further updates and answer any questions specific to your resort - you can find their contact details in your Welcome Pack by logging on to My Booking.

Passports & Visas
The United Kingdom Passport Service
It is your responsibility to be in possession of a valid passport and any visa that may be necessary. If you hold a Commonwealth or non-British passport, please check visa regulations with the embassy or consulate of the country you will be visiting. You should allow ample time when making visa applications and check for any changes in visa/passport requirements that a country may make at any time. At the time of publishing this information on the website, you do not need a visa for any destination, provided you have a British passport and usually an onward/return ticket.
Know Before You Go
The Foreign & Commonwealth Office’s 'Know Before You Go' (KBYG) is an ongoing campaign to ensure travellers get adequate travel insurance, have the necessary passport and visa documentation, leave emergency contact information with someone and tell them where you are going, have enough money and have access to emergency funds, visit GPs before travelling as appropriate, familiarise themselves with the destination’s local laws and customs and check the FCO’s country travel advice. For details, see the FCO website.
Please refer to the Department of Health for up to date advice on immunisations required and advised for travel abroad.
European Health Insurance Card
Reciprocal agreements exist in the EC enabling citizens of member countries to receive some free medical treatment on production of a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Application forms are available from the Post Office or Department of Health. You can also apply online for the EHIC. We highly recommend taking out further medical insurance and not relying exclusively on these arrangements since they may not be very comprehensive plus do not cover any insurance matters outside of health.
