Kuoni introduces Covid Travel Advice Hub
by Jessica Pook
Kuoni has unveiled a new 'hub' designed to keep agents abreast of the ever-changing requirements and restrictions being put in place around the world during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Available online for anyone to use, the one-stop advice hub shows which destinations are welcoming visitors, travel corridor information, current FCDO advice, Covid testing requirements and quarantine rules on entering a country or returning to the UK.
The advice will be continually updated as lockdown and legal restrictions are eased and holidays become possible again.
The free service will provide the most up-to-date advice and guidance as well as highlight destinations that can be booked now for travel at a later date.
Derek Jones, CEO of Kuoni, said: “We’ve spent the last few months designing this one stop shop for all Covid related travel advice. The information within the Travel Advice hub will be updated daily. Customers and agents will no longer need to go off to different websites to try and make sense of it all.
“This is about making an increasingly complex situation simple to understand, providing answers to questions we know people are asking in a clear, searchable online format that anyone can access."
He added: “During the pandemic we’ve seen two types of travellers emerge. There are those who want to get away quickly, who will go at short notice as soon as borders are open and the necessary Covid tests are in place. These customers want to know what’s possible now and the Travel Advice hub will be a valuable tool for these last-minute bookers.
“Alongside that we have customers planning holidays a long way in advance so again this is a really useful way to simply search for what’s bookable now for travel later.”
