International Travel Freedom

Typically all that is required to travel for most HolidayMax packages for Australian citizens is:

  • be fully vaccinated
  • take Covid tests
  • complete travel declarations

without requirements to quarantine or other Covid travel restrictions. There is now a trend of countries fully ending Covid border restrictions (eg scrapping test requirements etc), such as the United Kingdom and Scandinavia. More countries are expected to follow since all governments have detailed strategies to live with Covid and to enable their tourism industry to flourish again.# Relax - we will provide you with assistance with identifying any pre-travel requirements still remaining.
