17th March | COVID-19 Update

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Update: 17 March 2020  Love The Oceans has cancelled the 26th April 2019 program.  All individuals on this program have been contacted.

The UK Government has today issued an Exceptional travel advisory notice. The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) now advises British people against all non-essential travel worldwide. This advice takes effect immediately and applies initially for a period of 30 days.

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to unprecedented international border closures and other restrictions being implemented. The safety and wellbeing of our volunteers and staff is our priority and Love The Oceans policy is to cancel a programs when either the UK government (FCO) set the advice level for Inhambane, Mozambique to ‘Do Not Travel’, or where an operational restriction (such as the closure of the Mozambique border) would prevent Love The Oceans from running the program as intended.

If you haven’t heard from us directly by email, then there have been no changes to your program at this point in time. We will be in touch with you directly if your program will be cancelled.

Program start 26th April 2020

Cancelled. All Individuals on this program have been contacted.

Program start 31st May 2020

We don’t know if a future travel ban will be in place closer to the date of your program. Maybe the situation will get worse, maybe it will improve. If you are thinking of cancelling your participation in the program starting 31st May 2020 please get in touch with us directly to discuss your options.

Given the unprecedented impact of COVID-19 we would like to provide you with the assurance that your program participation is secure with Love The Oceans to be used in the future should you wish to transfer to another program. We are happy to transfer amounts you have already paid to use towards an alternative program with a start date before 01 June 2022; if the program you select is longer or more expensive, you will be invoiced for the difference in price, and if the program is shorter your final invoice will be adjusted accordingly. 

Please note that cancellation fees and refunds are governed by the LTO Terms & Conditions and apply only to your Love The Oceans program – airlines and other travel providers may charge additional fees so we recommend getting in touch directly with your travel insurance provider to enquire about your coverage.
