COVID-19 and Untours Travel to Europe

This page last updated 1/24/2022. Conditions are changing quickly, so check the official sources linked below for the most up-to-date policies by country.

Untours' Europe is open to travel for vaccinated visitors from the US and Canada, though entry requirements and local restrictions vary by country. Negative COVID tests may be required for entry and proof of vaccination required for travel and access to indoor venues onsite.

All of our 2022 UNTOURS are open to book.

COVID tests for entry to Europe: Most countries now require a negative test result for entry, regardless of a traveler's vaccination status. Please note the number of hours in which you must test ahead of a departure or arrival! Note if the hour count starts from the time of your arrival or departure. At-home tests are not accepted. Have a back-up plan for rapid testing in the event a test result is delayed.

Booster shots: Untours requires proof of vaccination for all travelers, and an increasing number of European nations are requiring proof a vaccination booster shots as well. We do our best to update this page, but things are changing very quickly, so caveats apply.

Travel Notes

  • Passport renewals are very backed up. Allow extra time! Read more.
  • We advise travelers to book flight tickets early, though schedules will likely change multiple times and fares may drop later on some routes.
  • Global rental car shortages are impacting fleets in Europe, limiting options in some cases for upgrades, one-way drop offs, and price options.
