The flexibility guarantee for travel

Our team of experienced travel experts are here to answer any questions that you may have. From personal travel advice to tailor-made itineraries, we keep all details straight and handle all bookings for you until you are safely home again.

For all bookings made after July 2020, we offer the option to rebook free of charge at any point before your holiday. This makes it easy to postpone your trip until any Covid restrictions or lockdowns in your destination country are lifted.

We will contact you six weeks before your scheduled departure from the UK. If it turns out that your departure, on the originally planned departure date, cannot be met due to travel restrictions, we will rebook your trip free of charge to a later date or provide you with a full refund. If you can still travel, but current regulations will impact what you can do on your holiday, you have the option to change dates as well.

More advantages of travelling with TravelEssence

Safety guidelines

Our local hosts offer small-scale accommodations that are always away from mass tourism - and surrounded by nature instead. Activities booked are private or with small groups. You will also get your own rental car instead of taking public transportation. Therefore, you don't have to worry about strict safety guidelines and distance measures can always be easily enforced.

Replacement flights

If there are changes to your outbound or return flight booked with TravelEssence, we will provide suitable alternatives.

Available by phone 24/7

Should an emergency occur during travelling, and you do need help or support, our travel specialists are available 24 hours a day.

Your money is protected

Not only do our travel experts ensure you have travel insurance and explain how it will protect you, your holiday is fully protected by ATOL.

See you on the other side of the world soon!
