The appetite for travel in the UK and US is returning at a whirlwind pace following positive news in recent weeks, and popular destinations at home and abroad are opening up just in time for summer. We want you to feel confident about your next trip. That’s why, if you book with Culture Trip before 30 June 2021, and if Covid-19 changes your plans, we’ll refund or rebook you – even if the place to stay or experience provider won’t. Explore our pick of trips in the Americas here and explore our pick of UK trips here. T&Cs apply.

As part of Culture Trip’s ongoing commitment to travel that’s good and makes you feel good, we’ve created an exclusive guarantee on all our bookings made before 30 June 2021 to ease you back into exploring the world. You might want to try one of our popular local experiences in the next few months, or plan a trip abroad to get away from it all. Whatever you choose we have you covered. Beat the rush and get planning.

Culture Trip’s Flexible Early Booking Promise

We’ve made the booking process as hassle-free as possible. Plan ahead and book with us with confidence. If travel restrictions change and Covid-19 rules make it impossible for you to travel up to 48 hours before your booking starts, we’ll offer you an alternative free of charge. If you still can’t find an available booking, then we will refund you in full. All you have to do is book before the end of June.

And there’s a huge range of choices. To help guide you, we’ve curated a series of travel hubs with remarkable places to stay and unforgettable experiences for once-in-a-lifetime trips from all of our favourite destinations around the world.

The picture in the US is slightly different to other parts of the world: domestic travel is already underway, with Texas, California and Florida emerging as hotspots that we have heaps of exciting content on. A road trip is a great way to explore the country, and even if you’re sticking to journeys at state level, there are still some fantastic places waiting to be discovered.

Texas is so vast, there’s a multitude of destinations you probably haven’t heard of, but thanks to our local writers, we’ve got the scoop to keep you in the know and guide you away from the crowds.

Floridians have so much on their doorstep, every day is a potential adventure. The bright lights and balmy nights of Miami might be your ideal way of letting off steam, or perhaps it’s the laidback vibes of the Florida Keys that are calling your name?

One of our favourite places in America is California. The Golden State is a year-round destination where you can follow in the footsteps of the rich and famous, or hike into the hills and escape in nature. And you can book excursions to other countries such as Mexico and Costa Rica with Culture Trip, too. Explore our pick of US trips here.

Our Ultimate UK Trips

For UK-based travellers, key dates have been set out by the Government to end lockdown restrictions. From 12 April, domestic staycations are allowed, with holidays abroad and hotel stays at home potentially back on the agenda from 17 May. Many booking sites have reported a surge in interest, but with Culture Trip you can book with unbeatable confidence. If things change and those dates get moved because of Covid-19 rules, you can easily rebook with us for another time.

We have an incredible selection of curated hotels and places to stay across the UK to suit every traveller. To help with the rush of wanderlust you’ll be consumed by at the prospect of a trip away, we’ve pulled together our best deals and recommendations here.

If you’re looking for an excursion close to where you live, we have suggestions from around the UK. Favourites such as the Lake District and the Cotswolds are crying out to be visited in the spring, and cosy cabins in Scotland will have you hunkering down for a stress-free summer.

Further afield, perennial favourites such as Greece, Turkey, Spain and Italy offer the ultimate 2021 escape – with a wide variety of options waiting to be discovered. Explore our pick of UK trips here.

Places to Stay Around the World

We strongly feel that no one should miss out on travel in 2021 and that’s why our booking guarantee covers every destination we have on offer.

With festivals, major sporting events and larger gatherings being rescheduled for later this year, now is the time to take advantage of exceptional properties at fantastic prices. Some of our luxury and boutique options might not usually be on your radar, but once you’ve explored our dedicated Places to Stay hub, you’ll find an unbeatable selection we’ve hand-picked for you.

Terms and conditions

If you are prevented from travelling by the implementation of Covid-19 restrictions in your departure country or destination after your date of booking, we will offer you the option to change your booking for free up to 48 hours before your date of travel, subject to availability.

In the event that we cannot change your booking dates, we will refund your booking in full following receipt of evidence to show that the restrictions were implemented after the date of your booking, including (but not limited to) evidence of flight cancellations, local lockdown restrictions, recommendations against travel and quarantine requirements. Your refund can be in the form of a full cash refund to your original form of payment or a voucher to be redeemed on the Culture Trip site valid for redemption for 12 months from the date of issue. Any voucher issued will include a 10% gesture of goodwill on top of your original booking value. If you cannot redeem your voucher or change your mind, the original booking value can be refunded back to your form of payment. There is no refund for partially redeemed vouchers. Any vouchers which are subsequently reissued due to cancellation of your travel arrangements will be for the same value.

This policy applies to bookings made before 30 June 2021 for departures before 31 October 2021, and is subject to further amendment. Rebooking dates cannot include stays that include dates between 18 December 2021 and 4 January 2022.

We would recommend that you take out personal travel insurance that covers you in the event that you contract Covid-19 and are unable to travel.
