The Ffestiniog Travel Team


It is inevitable that customers will be wondering how we are reacting to the ongoing situation and what effect this will have on their holiday bookings.

Ffestiniog Travel is mindful of the uncertainty and anxiety this will be causing and we are finding that our decision making is influenced not only by instructions issued by our own government’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office but also by the governments of those countries we are visiting. This is especially true of quarantine instructions, border closures and current restrictions. 

In view of all this, we have decided to cancel all holidays until the end of October. 

Please rest assured that where we cancel a tour, any monies paid by you to us will be refunded to you.

Tours which we have been forced to cancel will, wherever possible, be automatically included again in our 2021 programme and we hope that you will want to support us by rebooking as soon as we are able to get back to normal.
