Paradise In A Pandemic - Putting Your Mind At Ease

You're excited for your trip, but also cautious... And it's understandable, until you see the lengths that both Priority Escapes and resort partners have gone to in order to ensure your escape is safe and secure. 


Q: What about COVID affecting my travel?

A: You're safe! We have taken all precautions and made sure our resorts subscribe to flexible policies.


1. Should you or anyone in your party test positive for Covid before departure, you are awarded one free change without penalty so you can utilise your holiday at a future date

2. Should borders close, or travel be restricted in any way your booking may either be moved to a future date without penalty (within the same season) or you can apply to have your reservation refunded.

3. Within the resorts strictest social distancing and hygiene practices are enforced to ensure that you - and the resort - are 100% compliant to highest international safety standards. 

Please speak to your consultant if you're unclear about these polices in any way.
