Sardinia 2021

I have just been contacted by John Makinson of Discovery Travel , approx.1.00pm today

He advised me that EasyJet have cancelled the flights that were booked to take us to and return us from Sardinia

At present , there is no other option to proceed with the proposed tour this year.

DT  are looking at options for 2022 , however if a member does not wish to continue , flight costs will be recoverable from EasyJet via DT

Some aspects of the deposits have been expended in Sicily and therefore that aspect of the deposit refund is in doubt.

Members are requested to identify whether they want to consider 2022 or seek partial refund.

 

Sardinia Wine Tour

First of all , a happy new year to all U3A members “keep safe , follow the guidelines and we all might get through this”

Hopefully , we will all be vaccinated by the time we are due to travel to Sardinia in October.

Just a reminder about the the EHIC health card.

If your card is due to run out before October you will need to get a “GHIC” card which is to be issued by the British Government

If you go on the website “www.gov.uk”” you can find and fill out the necessary form to request a new card

Good luck

Regards.

George and Moe

Ps Please note that you will require to have at least 6 months left on your passport , I would suggest you have 9 months
