Coronavirus And The Situation In Switzerland

Latest news from our Swiss partners

 

Switzerland is a country renowned for its cleanliness and fresh mountain air. The lakes and mountains provide the perfect landscape in which to relax as we all start to enjoy holidays abroad once more.

 

The Swiss tourism industry has been working very hard to prepare to welcome visitors back safely. Hotels, restaurants, cafés and cable cars have now re-opened and the trains have resumed their normal timetable. Swiss border restrictions were lifted for UK passport holders on 15th June, and we know from talking with our friendly hoteliers that they are reserving a particularly warm welcome for our guests! With travel and quarantine restrictions now removed for travel from throughout the UK, we are currently contacting our customers still booked for July and August.
