On 10 June 2020, the Scottish Government announced a provisional date for the re-opening of the Scottish tourism sector: 15 July 2020. Businesses are encouraged to prepare to open their doors and welcome guests from then onwards.
However, the UK currently requires every resident and visitor travelling to the UK (i.e. crossing the UK border) to self-isolate for 14 days. Refusing to do so could incur significant fees. The end date for the quarantine rule isn’t known yet, we expect it to be later this summer.
That means that even though travel restrictions within Scotland will be relaxed, for now this only affects those who are already in the UK.
It will take more time to re-open the tourism sector for international visitors.
We will update this page as things change, including updates on measures we and our suppliers will have in place to keep you safe once we can run art experiences again.
At the moment the safest place to be is at home. However, over time restrictions will be lifted and we will long to travel again. Once we are able to run art experiences again your safety will be our priority so you can enjoy your trip without worries. This means we will work with our accommodation, transport and other partners to make adjustments at a practical level, guided by government guidance but also by our desire to look after our guests in the best possible way.
Details on specific measures will be included on this page.
The tourism sector as a whole is encouraging all operators to offer their customers full credit notes for trips affected by Coronavirus restrictions. This is because it is very well understood that the majority of the tourism businesses themselves don’t have enough resources to be able to offer blanket refunds to everyone. Being a small, personal business we certainly fall into this category and have decided, in line with guidance, to offer all our guests affected by coronavirus disruption a full credit note towards a future booking.
If your trip cannot go ahead please have a think about when you might like to travel next year instead. Get in touch with us via email on firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know and we will get you booked in. At least it will be nice to know you have an inspiring creative experience in Scotland to look forward to for when this strange and worrying period is over.
We understand that in these uncertain times flexibility is key when making any travel plans for the future and we want to make sure our guests can book with confidence.
Therefore all bookings made from now until 31 December 2020 have additional flexibility in that you can move your booking up until 10 weeks before departure to any future date within 24 months of your original holiday date.
All other terms and conditions remain the same- click here for more information.
