Dear Fellow Motorhomer,
January and the 2022 tours are underway with 14 motorhomes having left from the UK at the start of the year and are now touring in the Canary Islands, where they enjoy ideal motorhoming weather of sunny days and temperatures in the 20’s.

The Canary Islands are well known for their warm winter climate but are usually overlooked for their culture and heritage interests, on the GB Motorhome Tours Canaries Islands trip both really are covered. If you would like the possibility to experience this next winter, send us an email to register your interest in the next tour. The tour itinerary will then be sent to you ahead of it being made generally available, giving you first opportunity of booking a place on the tour if you so wish at that time.
At this time, all of the GB Motorhome Tours holidays arranged for this year are scheduled to proceed as planned, with GB Motorhome Tours doing everything possible to keep this on track. Those with tour bookings are being updated on their tours as information becomes available and regular updates will be sent to all booking holders as the start of their tour gets closer. In the meantime, feel free to contact us if there is anything you wish to ask about a tour you hold a booking on.
For all holidays, GB Motorhome Tours offers the option for participants to start their tour on the continent or directly from the UK. This gives full flexibility for individuals to choose which works best for them. In the current climate where travel is less certain and things can change at short notice, there is a real advantage of having everything arranged in one place, including your travel from the UK. This means should anything require changing this will be looked after for you, and in the event that the tour should not be able to proceed, everything is covered in one place. If you have a 2022 tour booking which currently doesn’t have the optional travel from UK with Tour Directors package included and you would now like to add this, it remains possible to do so at this stage. Send us an email requesting the optional package be added to your booking and this will be done for you, with a confirmation email sent. Full details of each tours optional package can be viewed at the end of the tours itinerary on the GB Motorhome Tours website.
January can be a time for planning holidays. Whilst many of the GB Motorhome Tours for 2022 are now fully booked, there remains limited availability on the following tours
• Scotland Highlands and Royal Deeside
• The French Atlantic Coast
• Rhine in Flames Spectacular
• Magical Bruges and Amsterdam
Full tour itineraries for each of these can be viewed by clicking on the above names and the remaining places are available to book on the GB Motorhome Tours website. Tours for 2023 will begin to be made available over the next couple of months and these will feature on the GB Motorhome Tours website and future monthly newsletters.
January can also be a good time to get things prepared and ready for travels later in the year. For continental travel GB Motorhome Tours recommends all UK travellers have with them the European Health Insurance Card, known by many as the EHIC or E111. Whilst the card has now changed names to the Global Health Insurance Card or GHIC, the scheme itself remains as comprehensive as previously; where importantly it covers all emergency medical treatment in EU member countries. If you already have an EHIC (plastic bank style card) these remain valid until the expiry date, when they can upon application be replaced with a GHIC. To apply for a GHIC click on the following link. Apply for a free NHS issued Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC). With the scheme covering pre-existing medical conditions, whereas most travel insurance exclude these, this is an important reason for carrying the card with you on continental tours. In addition to the GHIC, personal travel insurance continues to be required to cover the many things that the GHIC scheme does not include.
As we start another year, we wish you good travels in 2022 and we look forward to escorting you & your motorhome to many great places throughout the year.
