Know before you go

Eurocamp information
Updated 5th November | 18:00

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been some changes to arrivals into a number of the countries we operate in, and what you need to do when you return to the UK.

If you have booked a holiday, or are planning one soon, please read the information about the country you’re travelling to, below. 

Please remember that this information is subject to change, so we’d also recommend checking the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office’s travel advice

Returning to the UK

If you are returning to the UK from any Eurocamp destination country, you will be required to self-isolate for 14-days. 

There are different self-isolation rules and penalties depending on whether you are travelling to:

Please note that if you travel back from an exempt country but have been in a country that is not exempt within the last 14 days, you will need to self-isolate for the remainder of the 14 days since you were in a non-exempt country. For example, if you arrive in the UK from a country that is exempt, but you travelled to the exempt country 4 days ago from a country that is not exempt, you will need to self-isolate for 10 days.

You don’t need to self-isolate if you travel through a non-exempt country and you don’t stop in the country.

If you do make a stop, you don’t need to self-isolate if:
  • No new people get into the vehicle
  • No-one in the vehicle gets out, mixes with other people, and gets in again
You do need to self-isolate if you make a stop and:
  • New people get into the vehicle, or
  • Someone gets out of the vehicle, mixes with other people and gets in again. Full details are available here ›

    • All travellers, regardless of where in in the UK you travel to and stay, must complete a passenger locator form before returning, to be presented on arrival. Full details can be found here ›

ARRIVING IN ITALY

The FCDO has advised against all non-essential travel to Italy.

For anyone choosing to travel, a negative COVID-19 test result is required when you arrive in Italy from the UK. Visitors arriving into Italy from France, Spain, Malta, Greece, Croatia, the Netherlands, Belgium and the Czech Republic must also undertake the compulsory COVID-19 test. Some of our parcs may require a negative COVID-19 test as a condition of entrance to the parc if you have visited or travelled through any of the countries listed up to 14-days pre-arrival. 

The test needs to have been carried out in the 72 hours prior to your travel and should be a molecular (PCR) or an antigenic test. You’ll be asked to show proof of your test date and result at the border. You should not use the NHS testing service to get a test in order to facilitate your travel to another country. You should arrange to take a private test. Alternatively, you can take a free COVID-19 test at the airport when you arrive in Italy. This usually takes 30 minutes to an hour. You won’t be allowed to leave the airport until you have your result. If you test positive, you will be quarantined until two consecutive negative tests have been recorded. The time spent in quarantine can vary greatly from a few days to several weeks. Travellers should be prepared for this eventuality. Some airports in Italy do not have COVID-19 testing facilities. If you are flying to one of these airports (or if the facility is closed when you arrive) then you will be required to self isolate and take a test at an alternative facility within 48 hours of your arrival instead. You should call the COVID-19 helpline for the region you are in to arrange this. You can be fined if you do not comply with this requirement. Even if you don’t need to book a test, you still need to call the COVID-19 helpline for the region you are travelling within 48 hours of your arrival to inform them of your visit.

Certain parcs may require guests to sign a self-declaration form stating that they have not visited any of the countries listed, and if you have, you will have to present a negative COVID-19 test result from the previous 72-hours. Parcs can refuse access to guests who have visited these countries and cannot present evidence of a negative COVID-19 test result. Union Lido (IA015) also require a negative test from anyone arriving from or via the South of France.  

Throughout Italy, it is now compulsory to wear face masks outside at all times This is an Italian Government decree and fines will be issued for failure to abide by new rules of €1000.
