Corona in Cape Verde Islands?
Suddenly, things developed very quickly. Europe announced that they would close the borders. Our holiday guests had to fly home earlier than scheduled. I love to remember my last group of hikers before the state of emergency. We enjoyed the days in Cape Verde until the last moment. Maybe see you again sometime?
A few days later, the first Corona case was announced in Cape Verde. Today, on April 12, 2020, there are 8 positive tested Corona cases on the islands.
Since March 29, Cape Verde has also been in an exceptional state.
Good cooperation with the hotels and accommodations
In state-ordered emergency situations due to war or pandemics, insurance companies do not cover travel cancellations. There is no uniform law in Europe regarding the cancellation conditions in the event of force majeure.
“No ta djunto” – we stick together: a Cape Verdean saying that has proven to be true in Corona crisis
In the Corona crisis, our longstanding, close and personal cooperation with hotels, guest houses and private pensions pays off.
We all want to continue working together after the crisis and do the same good services for our guests as before.
As for our April guests, who unfortunately could not start into their booked holiday, we managed to rebook the reservations to another date or even cancel free of charge. This is in contrast to the usual cancellation conditions and for the benefit of our guests.
Boarders open for tourism
TUI airways starts to offers direct flights from London and Manchester to Sal and Boa Vista, from the middle of October.
TAP Portugal has started in August to connect Cape Verde with several European cities.
Please consult the particular travel regulations in your country of residence. Her you find corona travel advice for UK residents.

Would you love to spend your holidays in Cape Verde in 2020, but are you concerned about Corona?
Book with us at reduced risk!
We at VIP Tours Cabo Verde will be happy to make it easier for you. As a Cape Verdean on-site tour operator, we cannot pay back money in the event of a short-term travel cancellation that is beyond our control, but we are happy to offer you more beneficial conditions in case of a rebooking:
All the round trip programs with start in 2020, that have been booked by our guests directly via VIP Tours Cabo Verde, can be rebooked up to 30 days before the start of the trip (subject to availability) to a later date, usually up to 12 months after the date of issue of your Cape Verde domestic flight tickets. In this case VIP Tours Cabo Verde will cover the rebooking fee. You may only pay a possible price difference for your flights or hotels, should these prices increase until your new travel date.
In the event of a shorter-term, corona-related rebooking, we will also personally ensure that you change your travel date as low-cost as possible. The satisfaction of our guests is very important to us!
In case you cannot commit to a new date right away, we will be happy to send you a voucher instead that you can use for your next trip.
