Travel Information

For Holiday Pioneers

If you’re thinking about a Regent Holiday you’re probably somebody who likes to do things a little differently. Our destinations can be off-the-beaten-track, and some still remain relatively underdeveloped and may lack the facilities and service levels you have come to expect. That’s just part of what makes them so unique; travelling with this in mind will help you appreciate the little quirks and cultural differences you may encounter on your holiday.

Holidays Protected by ATOL

Your financial protection is important to us, which is why we are fully bonded by ATOL. Our ATOL licence (2786) protects any Regent holiday package including a flight and ensures that your money would be refunded or that you would be repatriated in the unlikely event of our insolvency. Read more about how ATOL will protect your holiday here.


As situations often change with passport requirements, we recommend that you always check with the relevant consulate before you travel. Please ensure that your passport is valid for six months after the end of your trip as many countries make this an entry requirement. We also recommend that you have sufficient blank pages to accommodate some of the larger entry stamps and visas.


Regent Holidays’ visa service is brought to you by CIBT, global visa and passport professionals with over 50 years experience. CIBT will provide you with a customised application pack that includes precise, easy-to-follow instructions, requirements, and all necessary application forms needed to obtain your travel visa.  A CIBT visa specialist will then individually review your application before it is submitted to an Embassy to ensure a fast, accurate and secure service.

Travel Insurance

It is a condition of booking that you take out adequate insurance cover for your holiday, checking that it covers all the activities you plan to undertake, protects you against cancellation and covers medical and repatriation expenses.

For those wishing to purchase a policy, we can recommend the single-trip and annual policies arranged by Travel & General Insurance Services Limited. To purchase a policy please click here.


Vaccination requirements and recommendations frequently change and it is not possible for us to give comprehensive advice. We recommend that you consult your doctor or a specialist vaccination centre. The NHS offer comprehensive advice on travel health and vaccinations.

Foreign Office Advice

Regent Holidays specialises in travel to off-the-beaten-track destinations and therefore it is important to be aware of local conditions. We are a partner in the FCO Know Before You Go campaign and are working with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to do all that we can to help British Travellers stay safe overseas. For the latest information regarding political situations and personal safety, please check the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website.

Airport Security Measures

Please note that due to new additional security checks there are delays processing through our UK airports which are affecting all passengers regardless of your final destination. You may be subject to additional searches and questions so we are advising all our clients to arrive in good time to check-in, pass through main security and at the boarding gate. The main change to security is that passengers travelling with any electronic or battery powered devices (mobile telephones, tablets, e-books, laptops, etc.) may be required to turn on their device in front of security teams and/or demonstrate the item’s functionality. Any device that has no power and that can't be turned on may be taken from you so please make sure your devices are charged before you leave home. All passengers will still be able to use electronic devices on board subject to the normal guidelines of using electronic devices in flight Safe mode.The liquid rule is still in place, as is the use of a clear plastic bag for all creams, liquids and gels under 100ml to pass through security.
