Neilson's flexible approach on summer holidays departing before 31st October 2020

With the unprecedented situation we are facing with the Covid-19 crisis, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), have advised against all but essential travel. On 10 May 2020, the Prime Minister announced the expectation that UK hospitality will not re-open until at least July, as well as the introduction of quarantine for any passengers arriving in the UK by air and the need for ongoing social distancing.


With ongoing uncertainty over how long this crisis will last, we understand our customers will be apprehensive about their upcoming holidays during this time. Your peace of mind, so that you are able to enjoy your holiday when it comes, is extremely important to us. So for summer 2020 holidays we would like to offer you increased flexibility over when you travel.


If you have an existing booking for a Neilson Beachclub or Sailing package holiday, travelling between 1st July and 31st October 2020, you can amend for free to a holiday in Summer 2021 or another date in Summer 2020. If you decide to move your booking to Summer 2021, we’ll let you move to the equivalent holiday at the price you have already paid. If you choose an alternative date for Summer 2020 or Summer 2021 that’s cheaper than the one you originally booked, you’ll pay the lower amount. If you choose a holiday that’s more expensive than your original booking, you’ll need to pay the difference in price. Please note in either circumstance, you will need to pay the difference where a child or infant will no longer be subject to child/infant pricing on the new booking.


You can make a change free of charge up until 72 hours before your original departure date. This policy is in place until 31 October 2020.


You can also, of course, choose to keep to your original holiday choice.


As our summer 2021 programme is not yet on public sale, please use our online form below and our team will process your change as soon as possible and provide you with updated holiday documents
