Dear Fellow Motorhomer,
September and it’s a great time to be touring in a motorhome. GB Motorhome Tours presently has four tours taking place; two covering Scotland, one in Ireland and one in Spain.
Both Scotland tours have passed through the lovely western Highlands coastal town of Oban, with one group now branching off to take the NC500 route (North Coast 500 mile route), whilst the other is heading towards the castle area of Royal Deeside.
The Ireland tour is now travelling along the Wild Atlantic Way, a great scenic route on the west coast of the Republic, having just completed the ‘Ring of Kerry’.
The Spain tour travelled directly from Portsmouth to Santander on board Brittany Ferries new ship Galicia, which really is a very pleasant way to arrive quickly to Spain and in a relaxed manner. The boat is new and very comfortable; with spacious cabins and good quality restaurants. The Spain tour is now on the Costa de la Luz (Coast of Light), having visited Noja on the Costa Verde (Green Coast), Burgos, Salamanca, Monfrague National Park and Seville, as they travelled from the north to south coasts over 10 days.
Reports back from all tours is just how enjoyable people are once again finding travel.
With a further relaxing of foreign travel regulations having been announced by the UK Government this week, to take effect in stages throughout September and October, travel going forward is returning to a more normal. Reports back from the Spain tour are that, providing someone is vaccinated there are no restrictions for entry to Spain or for travel throughout the whole country.
If you are looking to get away for some sunshine and warm weather sooner rather than later, take a look at our Canary Island’s winter tour. Starting in January, this tour offers the opportunity of being away from the UK winter and enjoying the very best weather Europe has to offer over this period, sunny days with temperatures in the 20’s are typical in the Canary Islands throughout January, February and March. Full tour details are available by clicking on Canary Islands winter tour.
As more people begin to plan their travel for the coming year, following Brexit, it is necessary to be mindful of the Schengen visa regulations that British citizens now need to abide by for travel in most EU countries. These are detailed on the EU’s official Schengen visa website where a handy calculator is also located for checking that your own travel plans keep you within the rules. If you are looking to join a tour and would like us to also make a check for you, then feel free to contact us and we’ll happily assist with this.
As travel becomes easier, we look forward to touring with you again very soon.
