You can go on holiday to Cuba with us from 17th May. 

Cuba is an amber list destination.

When you travel to an amber list country, you’re required to take an antigen (rapid flow) test before you return to the UK and two PCR tests once you’re home. You’re also required to self-isolate at home for 10 days – unless you opt in to the Test to Release scheme. If you won’t be able to self-isolate on your return home, you’ll be able to change your booking to another date or destination for free up to 14 days before your departure date. If your destination changes from the green to the amber colour category within 14 days of your departure date, you’ll also be able to change your booking for free. Just so you know, there may also be separate entry requirements set by the country you’re travelling to.

The First Choice Holiday Promise 

Our Holiday Promise is designed to give you complete peace of mind. As part of this, we’re offering exclusive COVID testing packages, from as little as £20 per person, as well as free changes on selected bookings up to 14 days before you travel. Included COVID Cover is automatically applied to all new and existing bookings for holidays departing between 17 May 2021 and 31 August 2021. If you’ve booked a package holiday, you’re entitled to your money back within 14 days if we have to cancel it, thanks to the package holiday refund guarantee. And, if you’re not able to travel due to contracting COVID-19, or having to self-isolate, at the time of your departure, you’ll be able to change your holiday without charge. What’s more, we’re offering help with testing, plus you can purchase COVID Cover from AXA Insurance through us.
