Best Late Escapes for 2021

We're experiencing high levels of demand at the moment, and our phone lines are very busy. So if you would like to make a booking, please email us at: newbookings@rivieratravel.co.uk and one of our team will arrange to call you back at a convenient time. Thank you for your patience.


As travel opens up again around the world, we want to help you find a 2021 holiday to look forward to.

We're keeping a close eye on the countries you can travel to with no quarantine requirements, and we’ll be updating our best last minute holidays for 2021 as new information comes in. We will only travel if we can offer an exceptional experience, with no quarantine on either side. If we don’t go ahead, you’ll be able to transfer to a later date free of charge or receive a full refund.

Here’s a few reasons why you can book a tour or cruise with confidence this year.

Book with confidence

The UK Government Traffic Light System will be replaced with a new simplified system categorising countries into either Red List or Rest of World from 4 October. We are planning to operate holidays to Rest of World destinations, provided we can be sure of offering an exceptional holiday experience and there will be no requirement to quarantine either on arrival or return. Book with complete confidence that if we can’t go ahead as planned, you can transfer to a later date or receive a full refund.

Holiday Happiness, Guaranteed

We offer exceptional experiences, with no compromises. So if you’re not completely happy by day two of your holiday, we’ll bring you home and give you a full refund. Find out more
