CGT Battlefields Information Page
Travel to Europe will be different, so it is important you plan early to make sure you have everything in place in time for your trip.
It is also important that you check how the coronavirus pandemic may affect your travel plans. When planning a trip and before you travel, check the Foreign Office advice for the destination you are visiting. ABTA also has advice on travelling during the pandemic.
Steps to take when travelling to Europe from 1 January 2021
Check to see if your passport will still be valid
If you have a British passport, you will need to have at least six months left on your passport and your passport must have been issued within the last 10 years.
You can use the Government's passport checker to see if you need to renew your passport.
Take out travel insurance with adequate healthcare cover
We consider adequate travel insurance to be essential and adequate travel insurance is a condition of your contract with us. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance cover you purchase is suitable for your particular needs, including pre-existing medical conditions.
If you have a European Health Insurance Card it will be valid up to its expiry date.
Check your mobile phone company's policy on data roaming
Rules around mobile data roaming are changing meaning you may face charges when using your phone abroad, including for making calls, sending messages or using the internet. Check with your mobile phone provider about their data roaming policy.
The UK Government also has advice for people travelling to the EU after 1 January 2021.
Other things to be aware of when travelling to Europe
- If you are going on holiday you won't need a visa for short trips to Europe.
- At border control you may need to show a return ticket and that you have enough money for your stay.
- When going through passport control you may not be able to use the EU or EEA lanes.
- You won't be able to take any meat, milk or any products containing these items into the EU. There are exceptions for powdered baby milk, baby food, or pet food required for medical reasons.

Safety Management System
The health and safety of our groups is our prime concern and CGT Battlefields Ltd is committed to providing the highest reasonable levels of safety throughout our tour programmes. Our Safety Management System explains the policies and procedures laid down by CGT Battlefields Ltd to ensure that all our tours are as safe as reasonably practicable. Please contact us for a copy of the latest version email@example.com
The completion of a risk assessment for your tour is an important and vital step on protecting the health and safety of your group. The primary consideration for any tour must be the safety of individuals for who the tour is being conducted. Additionally, a well-conducted risk assessment will assist in having your trip approved by your local authority and senior management.
Only you can complete your risk assessment, every group is different and we will not be aware of health, behaviour, medical requirements and special needs of the individuals travelling. The group leader has a responsibility to ensure risks are assessed and appropriate control measures put in place and final approval of your risk assessment must be signed by a competent person within your own organisation.
An example risk assessment conducted by CGT Battlefields is available, it is generic and is provided only as a useful template/guidance for you to complete your own risk assessment. Please contact us for a copy firstname.lastname@example.org
Inspection VisitsInspection visits can be arranged in advance, to allow you to complete your risk assessments. Please call us on 01453 549979 to organise.
