Frequently Asked Questions

What measures apply in the country where I am going on holiday?
Please use the advice from the government from your own country.

What measures apply at the campsite I have booked?
The campsites have drawn up protocols to ensure the safety of its guests. For the specific measures per campsite, we would like to refer you to the website of the campsite itself. 

When will I be informed if my trip cannot take place due to a negative travel advice?
We keep a close eye on the developments and will contact you no later than 2 weeks before departure if there is a negative travel advice for your destination.

What does a negative travel advice mean?
If the government has issued the colour code orange or red for your travel destination, we see this as a negative travel advice. It means that the government advises not to travel to that destination or the destination does not accept tourists. If you cannot reach your destination because the country you are traveling through does not accept tourists in transit, this also falls under negative travel advice.
View our flexible conditions in case of negative travel advice here.

If you want to cancel your trip, there will be costs applicable.

I have already booked my holiday, but I am unsure wether I should go. What is your advice? 
Last summer showed us that it was perfectly possible to go on holiday abroad. It is currently difficult to make a prediction for the situation next summer. We therefore use flexible conditions. You can therefore enjoy your holiday with us with peace of mind. View our flexible conditions here

I have to quarantine and therefore cannot travel, can I cancel free of charge?
If you need to be quarantined, but have not tested positive yourself and therefore cannot travel, this is not a valid reason to cancel free of charge. Of course we can always think along with you to rebook your holiday to another date. Please contact us if this is the case, we will look at the possibilities together.

Can I cancel my trip free of charge if I or my travel companions have tested positive?
No, unfortunately that is not possible. In that case, contact your cancellation insurance. For many insurance companies, a positive test is a valid reason to reimburse the cancellation costs. We therefore advise you to always take out cancellation insurance. Pay close attention to the applicable conditions surrounding Covid-19.

I want to cancel my trip because otherwise I will have to be quarantined at the destination or when I return home. Is that possible?
A quarantine requirement, upon arrival or at home, issued by the government of the country where you live, or by the country of your destination, is considered negative travel advice. The advice is not to travel to your destination. In case of negative travel advice you can rebook or cancel your holiday free of charge.

At my destination I have to show a negative PCR test. Can I cancel free of charge?
Unfortunately, showing a negative PCR test is not a valid reason to cancel the holiday free of charge. The costs of a PCR test are at your own expense.

I have not been vaccinated yet, can I go on holiday?
It is not yet clear whether countries can refuse tourists if they do not have a vaccination certificate. We also do not know whether this may actually be required. Only when more is known about this can we take a position on this.

I have not been vaccinated (yet) and therefore do not want to go on holiday, can I cancel free of charge?
No, this is not a valid reason to cancel free of charge. In case you cancel your booking, our regular cancellation conditions apply. View a complete overview of our travel conditions here.

Can I get compensation if not all facilities are available on the campsite?
No, we do not provide compensation if it appears that the facilities are (partly) unavailable due to Covid-19.

I still have a Corona voucher. How can I redeem my voucher?
When you  make your booking through our website, you can write the code of your voucher in the remarks. We will make sure to redeem the voucher at your booking.

We understand that the holidays are different than usual. There will be measures at the campsites, but each campsite had plenty of time to be well prepared for this. Whether you go on holiday in your home country, or in Italy, measures will continue to apply as long as the virus is still there. But we also believe that staying outdoors on a campsite is a good choice in these times. At a campsite you have space around your own accommodation and at Estivotravel you also have your own sanitary facilities.

We sincerely hope that you will have a great camping holiday this summer with Estivotravel.
