Travel industry ANVR sees that more and more Dutch people are booking a holiday abroad for this summer now that more and more countries can be traveled and the travel advice is determined per individual country. With the 'Digital Corona Certificate' (DCC) without too many restrictive measures or additional requirements, free travel within Europe is finally possible again. And if you have to be tested because you have not yet been fully vaccinated, ANVR travel companies offer these tests at a reduced rate.

Until recently, Dutch people only dribblingly booked their summer holidays; the travel sector sees that bookings are clearly picking up, although it cannot yet be compared with the period before corona. With the abolition of the generic travel advice and the determination of individual travel advice per country, the travel sector expects that more and more holiday destinations will be given the safe designation 'yellow' or even 'green'. In an individual assessment per destination, the ANVR believes, no distinction needs to be made between countries within or outside the EU, so that a number of distant destinations can also be traveled. “It doesn't matter where you go, but how you behave. And that applies to 'young and old', only with common sense can we get and keep destinations on yellow”, according to the ANVR.   

"Not everyone can or wants to be vaccinated when the holiday season arrives, but testing can also offer a solution. We believe, following other European countries, that a necessary test should be provided free of charge, because this measure is ultimately imposed from the For these tests, which you also need for your destination, we work together with coronatest2travel.nl, an initiative of Lead Healthcare and Care4homecare, which works according to the guidelines of the RIVM.

Frank Oostdam, chairman of the ANVR.

Bookers of ANVR package holidays, but also people who travel on the spec can make use of this collaboration from Wednesday 16 June 2021 and benefit from the greatly reduced rate. The travel sector, after being shut down for almost 15 months, wants to do everything it can to make travel possible again for everyone this summer; safe and responsible, reports the ANVR.
