Tui, Ryanair, Jet2 and easyJet rules if you can’t fly due to Covid

Millions of Britons will be dreaming of holidays abroad this year after Covid restrictions are lifted in the UK, paving the way for city breaks, adventure holidays or lazy holidays at the beach. While travel restrictions have mostly disappeared, catching Covid could ruin your hopes of going abroad.

Many of our major airlines have policies relating to Covid and whether passengers are forced not to fly due to infection. But these rules vary enormously depending on the company you decide to travel with.

We’ve looked at what they all have to say:


According to the airline’s website, TUI offers flyers the “flexibility to change your vacation date, hotel, flight or destination free of charge if you are unable to travel due to Covid-19”. This applies to holidays departing on or before October 31, 2022.

Tui also provides a list of covid entry requirements for their holiday destinations which includes where you must be fully vaccinated and where you do or do not need a pre-departure test to travel.

EasyJet’s website says you should not travel or go to the airport if you have symptoms. However, travelers can still be transferred to another flight up to 2 hours before departure via Manage Bookings. Upon presentation of a valid and satisfactory medical certificate, the airline may, “at its discretion”, refund any change fees you may have paid or provide a voucher for future travel.


Ryanair’s website states: “As a result of Covid-19, you may be required to complete and present additional travel documents before travelling”. The airline advises passengers to ensure they check the latest travel restrictions and country-specific requirements before flying.
