Same reasons as above, plus:

Following a positive Covid-19 test before your arrival:

  • Cancellation of your trip following a positive Covid-19 test result before your arrival, for you or one of the travelers on your file;
  • Obligation to self-isolate for a period of 14 days before your arrival following a positive Covid test result, for you or one of the travelers on your file.

Following a positive Covid-19 test upon arrival, following a random screening at the border:

  • Free cancellation of services not used during the isolation period prescribed by government authorities (maximum: 10 days).
