Autumn holidays
Spontaneity and flexibility are required for the autumn holidays.

The situation around the coronavirus is constantly changing: National borders are opening and closing, and countries are repeatedly placed on Switzerland's quarantine list.

Where can I currently travel to?

Many trips still cannot take place as planned. Spontaneity and flexibility are currently in demand. Anyone wishing to spend their autumn holidays abroad at short notice should consult the travel advice of the FOPH and the FDFA before booking. There you will find various information on the regulations applicable to people living in Switzerland. Those who prefer to spend their holidays in Switzerland should find out about possible measures taken by the individual cantons. Some cantons, for example, require people to wear masks in shops.

Countries you can travel to now

Get an overview of potential holiday destinations: ERV (Europäische Reiseversicherung), a subsidiary of Helvetia, has compiled a list of countries for which there are no travel warnings or other restrictions (in German).

Five tips for your autumn holidays

  1. It is essential that you inform yourself shortly before departure about possible measures at the destination, such as wearing protective masks, showing a negative corona test, etc.
  2. You should also ask your accommodation if and which regulations apply there.
  3. It is also advisable to agree flexible cancellation or rebooking conditions for short-term bookings to avoid unpleasant surprises.
  4. Continue to adhere to the rules of hygiene and carry enough disinfectant and masks.
  5. Those travelling abroad by car should take additional precautions in addition to those mentioned above. You can find tips here.
