Coronavirus COVID-19 Announcement
The Algarve Getaways office is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please do not phone the office number but send us an email instead and we will reply as soon as possible.
The past two weeks have been very challenging for everyone, as we have encountered obstacles that the tourism industry has never faced before; our first priority has been to ensure the safety of our guests and staff.
All bookings for March and April have been, or are in the process of being, cancelled. We are no longer able to offer the personalised service that we are so well known for and we can only apologise to our guests, still in Portugal, whose holidays have been so severely compromised.
We are also dealing with an unprecedented number of emails requesting information or cancellations for the summer season. Please understand that our staff are working under very trying conditions, in self-isolation, and we may not always have an immediate answer to your question. However, we will get back to you as soon as we are able to, so please be patient.
We also cannot predict the progression of events and information from government sources and the EU, which is changing on an ongoing basis. Depending on whether you booked directly with us or through a third party, we may have to wait for their update before we can comment on future dates. Rest assured that we are doing our level best to keep up with, and assessing, all directives.
We recognise and commend the great bravery and commitment of all the medical and support personnel, emergency services, public safety and related resources who provide assistance to all in need and keep us safe across the country.
We hope that it will not be too long before we can all return to normality and we look forward to welcoming you back soon to the Algarve.
Please stay home and wash your hands frequently; your lives and those of others may depend on it.
With our very best wishes
Howard & Barbara Derber
