Dear Fellow Motorhomer,
As we approach the festive season all of us at GB Motorhome Tours wish you a Merry Christmas and all the very best for the coming New Year.
Looking back over 2021 this has been a difficult year for travel, with many challenges needing to be overcome for tours to proceed. GB Motorhome Tours is not a tour operator to shy away from challenges; so using our extensive knowledge and 30+ years of experience within the GBMT team, eight tours throughout 2021 were successfully completed. These covered both continental tours and a number of closer to home destinations, with Scotland proving very popular in 2021. A common theme from all of those participating in tours during 2021 has been just how normal and good it feels to again be travelling within the comfort and safety of one’s own motorhome.
‘A real treat after all the Covid restrictions. Well done Nurcan and Kevin, you managed to show us Spain in a greater depth than just the tourist spots. Some magnificent scenic drives.’ Carolyn and Roger Metcalfe – A Journey Through Spain – September 2021
‘It has been a really good tour. Meals were all excellent and as things are at the moment Covid wise very well organised. We would definitely like to do another tour with GB in UK as we are now not confident about touring abroad. Faced with the Covid restrictions Liz and Dave gave us a wonderful experience in the South West.’ Valerie and Phil Steele – UK Fleeces to Flamingos – June/July 2021
‘In all the circumstances, this trip proved ideal. Euros, Kilometres and the Gaelic gave us that crucial continental air, we felt that we were abroad. Ron & Sue managed the campsites and meals brilliantly and smoothing our way at all times. The meals and venues were all up to GB Motorhome Tours standard and there can be no higher praise.’ Margaret & Joe Ratcliffe – A Journey Around Ireland – June 2021
‘There were different levels of facilities available but in no way did this give a problem. The tour was subject to pandemic restrictions but this had minimal effect on the tour atmosphere. So many thanks for a very enjoyable tour’. Barry and Di Short – Scotland Highlands and NC500 – May/June 2021
‘For us it was the first tour with GB Motorhome Tours. From all our heart we say it was the best holiday we have ever been on. All the 68 days, Kevin and Nurcan created a permanent state of safety and protection, for us to fully enjoy the entire programme of the tour. You can go to the Canary Islands on your own but I don’t think you will ever be able to feel, see, taste and enjoy so many things we lived together. We will definitely go on future tours. Very enthusiastic for our next GB Motorhomes Tour.’ Elena and Mircea Costache – Canary Islands – Dec 2020/Feb 2021
As 2021 comes towards an end we look forward to 2022 with a high degree of expectation that travel will be possible for all who wish to get away throughout the year. GB Motorhome Tours have many great tours scheduled for the coming year, including two new recently introduced tours

For all tours, GB Motorhome Tours closely monitors all aspects of ongoing government advice, travel regulations and conditions affecting travel in general, with updates communicated to tour participants. GB Motorhome Tours will continue to run tours for those who wish to travel, using our experience and expertise to offer safe and sensible tours to match any changing circumstances. Feel free to contact us if you would like to ask anything regarding a tour or travel in general.
Following Brexit, most travellers will be aware that UK citizens are now limited to spending no more than 90 days out of the previous 180 days in Europe. The rules for this were covered in detail in the GB Motorhome Tours November Newsletter. For controlling this, when entering and exiting EU countries from the UK, British passport holders should now receive a date stamp in their passport. Do ensure as you arrive and depart from the EU your passport is stamped, this is important so you can prove your entry/exit dates if questioned about the length of your stays.
We hope you have an enjoyable festive season and we look forward to lots of great travel with you in 2022.
