What type of accommodation is best for you?
Think about the type of vacation rental that will best suit your family and allow them to have a relaxing trip.
Private villas will appeal to those who do not want to share facilities with other guests and prefer more independence. You have the flexibility of self-catering and plenty of space inside and outside to enjoy yourself. When considering a resort stay, you can rest assured that the resort owners have gone out of their way to customize their experience to ensure the safety, wellbeing and enjoyment for guests. After months of stuck at home cooking endless family meals and uninterrupted entertainment, the abundance of facilities and fantastic restaurants are a welcome treat. All of the resort options on our website have at least two bedrooms and their own outdoor area, so you also have plenty of private space to relax.
What to pack
You may want to add some extra items to your packing list to make sure you are adequately prepared while on vacation and traveling. It’s a good idea to bring your own supply of cleaning supplies, including handy travel-sized bottles of hand sanitizer and packs of handbag-sized disinfectant wipes. You will most likely need face masks. Sorting these out in advance will help you find some that are most convenient for you and have plenty of spare parts. Packing your thermometer is also a good idea. Take a look at our full baby and toddler packing list, which is a great reminder of all the usual vacation must-haves.
Check your passports
Renewal of the passport is currently taking longer than the usual three weeks. So organize ahead of time and don’t leave it to the last minute.
Go with another family or extended family
As part of the easing of the lockdown restrictions in England, you can now stay overnight with another household, even if you are living in a shared apartment on vacation. The guidelines for Scotland are up to three different households, but a maximum of 8 people. With just one other household, you can use the advice of Wales to create an ‘enlarged household’. In Northern Ireland, up to 6 people can share indoor accommodation.
The government advises vacationers to maintain social distance and to pay special attention to ensuring excellent hygiene – washing hands and surfaces – when using common facilities such as bathrooms.
Do we have to quarantine?
It is advisable to check if the country you are traveling to has quarantine requirements. There are currently no quarantine requirements for UK vacationers in any of the Tots destinations.
You will also need to consider whether your family needs to be quarantined when you get home. Currently, the 14-day quarantine still applies to travelers returning from Portugal, and on July 26, the FCO brought back the quarantine requirements for travelers from Spain. With the government’s new traffic light system, the quarantine only applies to countries that are classified as red.

What about travel insurance?
As always, it is important that you have adequate travel insurance before booking a vacation. However, coverage for coronavirus-related travel disruptions may not be an option. Policies purchased before mid-March may still cover you for coronavirus-related claims. However, you should always check the specific details with your insurer.
New travel insurance is unlikely to cover you against coronavirus disruption and travel Advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office will surely invalidate any guidelines that do so. There are some providers that cover you for coronavirus medical treatment, but not for travel interruptions or cancellations.
Can we still use European Health Insurance Cards (EHIC)?
The EHIC card is available free of charge to all UK residents and covers you for medical treatment during your visit to EU countries. Any treatment is given on the same terms as people resident in that particular country, at a discounted rate or even free of charge. If free health care is available in the country where you are visiting the EHIC card, you are entitled to free treatment. Children need their own card and should therefore be declared as a dependent when applying by adults.
While the UK is in a transition phase under Brexit, UK registered EHIC cards are valid until the 31stst December 2020. Current instructions for applying for an EHIC card can be found on the EHIC website.
