At The Big Journey Company, your wellbeing is always our primary concern. You can be assured that - together with our travel partners around the world – we are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19)* situation and the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) current guidance on foreign travel.

Some destinations have announced increased screening and/or travel restrictions for those who have recently visited countries with a higher incidence of COVID-19. All travellers should regularly check the FCO travel advice pages or speak to us at The Big Journey Company.

Everyone should be aware that health screening procedures have been put in place on arrival in many countries. The FCO advises that if you are travelling, you should comply with the measures in place.

To date, The Big Journey Company have either postponed or cancelled all Member Escorted Journeys tours through to December 2020.

Member Events in Europe are still scheduled to operate from September 2020 onwards. If you are booked on a Member Event this autumn, we will contact you in the case that the Member Event is cancelled.

We are continuously reviewing the travel advisories and will have notified all passengers by email/phone if your tour is postponed or cancelled.
