Your Holiday Checklist

Ensure you are prepared for your holiday with our helpful checklist

To help you feel confident when you set off on your Club Med holiday we have gathered a list of handy tips and checks to carry out before your departure.

Pre-holiday checklist

Choose your destination carefully
It is important to be aware of the travel requirements each country may have so that you can pick the one that is right for you. You may want to avoid quarantining or having to provide a negative Covid-19 test therefore you should regularly check the FCDO website and our destinations page to see which countries fit your criteria.

Do you have medical insurance?
All departures up until the 30th April 2021 are covered by our complimentary Covid-19 medical cover, this includes the costs of hospitalisation and the cost of stay of a companion. However, it is advised that you do seek medical insurance that covers other medical emergencies to ensure that you have complete peace of mind while you are away.

Be aware of what you can use abroad
Very often credit cards or your phone services have extra charges if you were to use them abroad, therefore it is worth discussing these with your providers so that you can avoid unnecessary costs. Although you will not need any money within the resort, it may be useful to have in case you decide to explore the local towns. In terms of a credit card, a useful alternative could be to use a travel money card which also helps you to avoid carrying around cash. This card needs to be topped up so it is worth doing this before you travel. Travel money cards are available from places such as the Post Office.

Preparing for your departure

The week before travelling
Most destinations require a negative PCR test so it is important to check whether testing is available at the airport you are travelling to and whether this is an acceptable alternative to having a test done before you travel. If you are able/required to, ensure you get a Covid-19 test done within the correct time restrictions for your destination; most countries ask for no longer than 72 hours before departure.

24 hours before travelling
If your holiday destination requires you to fill out a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) or any similar documents, such as a health declaration form or sworn statement, it is best to complete this at least one day before departure just in case you have any problems or issues.

Remember to bring:

  • Passport
  • Completed PLF and QR code (if required)
  • Hand sanitiser (under 100ml)
  • Negative Covid-19 test results (if required)
  • Plenty of face masks
  • Plug adapters
  • Money

Before you return to the UK ensure that you have completed the PLF.
