We can’t wait to welcome you on your upcoming Shearings holiday, and we want to ensure your experience is one to remember. In light of the current situation regarding COVID-19, this document is intended to provide you with relevant information for your holiday.
As the government frequently updates the guidelines, we ask that you keep yourself up-to-date on the latest advice.
When travelling to Europe each country that you travel through will have their own rules that you need to know, but even staying closer to home it is important you are aware of varying restrictions as Scotland, Wales, Ireland, the Isle of Man and Channel Islands all have their own authorities and their own guidance.
Many venues such as hotels and attractions throughout the UK will have their own risk-assessments and their own procedures internally, and it is important you follow the guidance of the venue you are in.
As we all transition back to a more normal way of life, there is a responsibility on all of us to keep ourselves and each other safe, even though official restrictions are easing. Please be respectful of your fellow travellers and staff so that everyone can have an enjoyable holiday!

During each night of your holiday, your coach will be treated with antibacterial fogging that will disinfect all surfaces within the vehicle.
Porterage may be available at some destinations. Many hotels will try to assist where they can if you are unable to carry your own bag, please talk with the hotel team directly.
In accordance with government guidance, some hotels have suspended daily housekeeping in guest bedrooms meaning that your room may not be serviced during your stay. Should you require clean linen or towels, tea and coffee or anything else during your stay, please do not hesitate to ask at reception.
Rooms are deep cleaned between guests with a focus on all hand-contact surfaces.
Capacity has been reduced to allow tables to be spaced according to social distancing guidelines.
Entertainment will be provided at the discretion of the hotel and may follow social distancing guidelines.
All staff have signed a daily health declaration and will undertake a daily temperature check prior to commencing work as well as regular Lateral Flow Tests.
