We’re hoping to be able to take you to Cape Verde again soon, but due to current restrictions we’re unable to travel here. For the latest guidance visit the FCDO website or check out our Travel Alerts page.

COVID Cover

As part of our TUI Holiday Promise, all bookings departing on or before 30th April 2021 have our COVID Cover included. And, holidays booked between 26th December 2020 and 28th February 2021 – departing on or before 31st October 2021 – also come with our COVID Cover. This means you can amend your holiday for free if you contract COVID-19 before you travel, are officially required to isolate prior to your travel dates, or if your local area goes into lockdown over the dates you are due to depart. It’s also got an AXA Holiday to Home insurance policy built in. This means that if you contract COVID-19 while you’re away, you’re covered for overseas medical assistance, testing costs and a flight home for treatment if required. It’s designed for use alongside your usual travel insurance, and is subject to T&Cs.
