WHEN TO GO
Weather-wise, there are only really 2 seasons in Goa – wet and dry. The dry season falls between October and May, so Goa’s a sure-fire destination for winter sun. From June to September, monsoon rains douse the landscapes here, but it makes sure the countryside is nice and green when the dry season rolls around. Temperatures stay sizzling throughout the year – think mid-20s to early 30s – although things are a bit more humid around late spring.

Passports and Visas
As well as a valid passport, UK citizens must have a visa to travel to India. You can apply for an e-Tourist visa online at https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/visa/tvoa.html. If you're not eligible for an e-Tourist visa you must apply via the Indian Consulate for a 6-month visa. If you need assistance applying for your visa, we recommend the Travel Visa Company. That said, other suppliers are also available.

Health & Safety
You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance to cover you while you’re away. It’s a good idea to visit your doctor a month or so before you travel for advice on any jabs you might need.
