Travelling with MRT in the coming months

last updated on 04/04/22


All our tours and events within the UK have resumed, and as restrictions on international travel ease, our overseas programme is following suit.

Entering the UK

The UK government’s guidance on entering the UK is available in full here. From 4am on 18th March no-one entering the UK will need to take tests or complete a passenger locator form.

Travel within the UK

Measures have lifted but mask-wearing is encouraged, and in some cases remains a requirement. We ask participants to respect the guidance where issued.

International travel

Rules on entry requirements are changing as the situation improves, as are the Covid measures individual countries or regions have in place. We send you the latest information at two key points: 10 weeks before departure with a request for your balance payment, and 3 weeks before departure. It is likely the rules and/or measures in place 10 weeks before your tour or festival will ease as we get closer to the departure date. It is unlikely, though not impossible, that measures will tighten.  

Please bear this in mind as you need to be comfortable with both eventualities.  

We follow the guidance for travellers from the UK, Australia, New Zealand, USA and Canada. We encourage those of you travelling from elsewhere to contact us.

Our programme for 2022

You can see our programme of tours, festivals, chamber music breaks and symposia here. You can book immediately.

Please note that the ‘spaces remaining’ indication on our tour pages cannot be relied upon at the moment as clients currently booked may not travel. For up-to-date information on availability please contact us

When we cancel a tour

Although this is happening less and less, if we cancel a tour you are entitled to a cash refund, as long as you are still booked on it at the time of cancellation. However, we are asking clients to consider transferring to a future event instead. This will help to secure Martin Randall Travel’s future more than any other intervention. 

If you wish to cancel a booking on a tour that is due to run later this year, we ask you to contact us to discuss your concerns. We would welcome the opportunity to talk through the options and explain our position on cancellation charges.

Thank you.
