Happy New Year to all our existing clients and those finding us for the first time.
Scotland , like the rest of the world is still getting to grips with CV19 but the end is in sight. The vaccine programme has been rolling for a few weeks now and 1m+ have now been vaccinated. Its going to take 4 or 5 months to get enough of the population vaccinated before this virus dies out quietly, but we are maklng good progress with this.
For our international guests planning to be here in the summer of 2021, or even in 2022, the message is likely to be – bring a negative test with you. We think this travel rule is going to be in place for most of 2021 but we are expecting you to be able to enjoy freedom when you get here from possibly April onwards. These are only predictions at this stage, so things might change. But the good news is we can start planning ahead again and golfers can start looking forward to coming here and playing our great courses again.
The protection the vaccine offers seems to take a couple of weeks to kick in fully so get your jab at least a few weeks before you plan to travel, and book a test 48 hours before your flight.
If you test positive just before you travel and cant travel, then your holiday may be forfeited. Just like any other illness that prevents travel, you will need to claim on your travel insurance policy to recover your tour costs. No refunds will be forthcoming from us, our hotels or golf courses etc if you cancel at short notice. SO PLEASE ARRANGE YOUR TRAVEL INSURANCE POLICY IN GOOD TIME.
Thanks for your continued support, we have an amazing year ahead of us with hundreds of clients arriving and we look forward to delivering some amazing tours that are all ready planned for you. We are also busy planning trips for 2022 and 2023. Remember, The Open is back in St Andrews in July 2022 so please view our Open St Andrews pages on this web site for more information. We have just secured additional rooms at some Dundee hotels so we have plenty capacity, but as always, if you want to attend a major event – book your trip early!
Stay safe, get vaccinated when you can and prepare for your next Scotland Golf Tours adventure. It will be worth the wait.
Best wishes for 2021.
