Is the 2021 TT affected by the Coronavirus?

The Isle of Man Government has cancelled the 2021 Isle of Man TT Races to protect critical care capacity in the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak.

The full statement can be read here:  https://www.iomttraces.com/news/racing/tt-2021-is-cancelled  

In addition the borders are currently closed to non residents of the Isle of Man. Travel to the Isle of Man is not permitted without an Entry/Exception certificate.

Will my Travel Insurance cover this cancellation?

In the first instance please contact your travel insurance company to confirm. In general, UK-based insurers, travel agents and airlines follow official UK Foreign Office travel advice

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) continues to advise British people against all non-essential travel to certain destinations worldwide, with rules in place for entering the UK from particular countries because of coronavirus. 

In addition the Isle of Man Government has implemented strict entry requirements for anyone arriving in the Isle of Man. You can find the entry requirements here

What happens if I decide to cancel my trip?

If you cancelled your trip before the announcement cancelling the TT was released your cancellation request will be processed in accordance with the existing terms and conditions. 

Please note: At the time of booking with Duke Travel you will have received a standard “standalone insurance” certificate. This covers you against supplier failure. It is not travel insurance and does not protect you against ‘disruption to travel,’ disease or any other risks.

Can I rebook instead?

If you have an existing booking for TT 2021 you should have received an email from us outlining the options available to you. In all cases it is possible to transfer your booking on a like for like basis for TT 2022 at no additional cost to you.
