Coronavirus COVID-19 Announcement
The Algarve Getaways office is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please send us an email and we will reply as soon as possible. Please do not phone the office.
The past 6 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, April and May have been, or are in the process of being cancelled. Where bookings have been made through a third party, we have to wait for their updates and directives on future dates and we cannot predict the progression of events and information from government sources and the EU, so we may not be able to give a definitive answer to all your queries but are monitoring the situation on an ongoing basis.
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 but we will get back to you as soon as we are able to, so please be patient.
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
