As vaccines are rolled out and the world starts to look forward with cautious optimism, thoughts will turn towards travelling again. However the landscape is markedly different and it is therefore vital that attention is paid to the constantly changing border policies and Covid-19 screening requirements of all countries. In addition, airlines and hotel companies are continually updating their policies in respect of changes and cancellations.
The value of a professional business travel agent has never been greater. Wayte Travel Management has been arranging business travel since 1980 and I myself have been with the company since 1988. We are long established, well capitalised and in a strong position to weather the Covid storm and continue providing exceptional service to our clients, old and new, into the future.

Brexit changes to Business Travel
Business travellers will face some changes come at the end of the transition period on the 1st of January 2021. Our expert team here at Wayte Travel Management are here to guide you through the changes, and what is required for you.
When travelling to the EU,Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland, British citizens will need to check whether their passport is valid. Your passport must:
- Have at least 6 months left on it
- Be less than 10 years old regardless of how long is left on the passport.These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland. You can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay.
At border control, you may need to:
- Show a return or onward ticket
- Show you have enough money for your stay
- Use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens when queueing

As the world starts to reopen and travel restrictions are relaxed we are beginning to see business people arranging overseas trips again. However, the landscape is markedly different and it is therefore vital that attention is paid to the constantly changing border policies and Covid-19 screening requirements of all countries. In addition, airlines and hotel companies are continually updating their policies with respect to changes and cancellations.
