COVID-19

As part of the UK Common Travel Area,
the Channel Islands are classified as domestic travel (not international or global travel) when travelling from the United Kingdom. 
However, it is important to note, that similar to England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland,
Jersey and Guernsey have their own independent Governments and as such it is essential to be aware of the latest regulations in the destination jurisdiction.    

Freedom Holidays - Covid Refund Guarantee 
In these uncertain times, it is reassuring to know that if you are unable to travel or to take your holiday because of a national, local and Island lockdown, that Freedom Holidays will guarantee that you will get the option to defer up to the end of 2022 or a receive a full refund. Please note that the refund applies only to your booking accommodation payment(s) and only when the lockdown coincides with the period of your booking. 
The refund guarantee covers national, local and Island lockdowns, but does NOT cover you (or members of your party) for being unable to travel because you (or a member of your party) fall ill with Covid, or are required to quarantine, self-isolate or shield due to illness. These events can be covered by you taking out travel insurance. There are a number of policies that include cover for illness with Covid and self-isolation (example links below), and some Bank/Building Societies annual travel policies also cover this.  Alternatively, you can look for suitable cover on websites such as GoCompare, CoverwiseAllianz AssistanceTrailfindersFreedom Holidays are not selling, promoting, endorsing or recommending any particular insurance product, and do not benefit financially from, nor have any formal relationship with, any of these providers.

Latest Travel Information 

From today travellers who have received 2 doses of an MHRA approved vaccine (with the second dose received 14 days prior to travel) who have not travelled outside the Common Travel Area will be able to enter the Bailiwick with no self-isolation or testing requirements (Blue Channel travellers). Full details on travel requirements with effect from 1 July 2021 can be found here

Blue Channel travellers will need to provide details of their COVID-19 Status (date, batch details and type of vaccine) before entering their journey on the Travel Tracker. Full details of the COVID-19 Status Certification (vaccine passports) can be found here.

Whilst travellers can complete their journey details in the Traveller Tracker 2 days before arrival in the Bailiwick, we are asking travellers who qualify for the ‘blue channel’ today and tomorrow to complete the Travel Tracker on their day of arrival as we settle into the new system.

Travellers will need to manually upload their vaccine information (type, date of dose 1 and 2 and batch number.) They will also need to upload a copy of official proof of their vaccination status (scan, photo or PDF) in order for the Travel Tracker to authenticate them as a ‘Blue Channel’ traveller. Information on accepted proof of vaccination in the Common Travel Area can be found here.

If ‘Blue Channel’ passengers have already registered their journey ahead of today they will automatically be charged for COVID-19 tests by the system.  In such cases, travellers can register a new journey today and contact travel.tracker@gov.gg on their arrival in the Bailiwick to arrange a refund.

Traveller numbers with effect from 1 July are high and travellers are, therefore, strongly advised to complete the Travel Tracker AHEAD of their journey to the Bailiwick to reduce waiting times on arrival.

Travellers are also reminded that children aged 12 to 17 years inclusive are required to register their own personal Travel Tracker Account with effect from 1 July 2021. This is to ensure that they receive the necessary COVID-19 test on arrival and are scheduled for a test on day7 and/or day 13.

 

The Travel Tracker can be accessed here.
