What is COVID-19 Green Certification?

The COVID-19 Green Certification was introduced by the European Commission to facilitate the safe movement of citizens. It is a certification in digital and printable format, which contains a QR Code to verify its authenticity and validity.

From 6 August, the certification can be requested to attend public events, to access certain indoor facilities and businesses, and to travel in and out of territories classified as red or orange zones.

From 1 September, the Green Certification will be required for long-distance and interregional journeys within Italy.

The certification will have to attest to having had at least one dose of vaccine or having tested negative to a molecular or rapid swab in the previous 48 hours or having been cured of COVID-19 in the previous six months. It is not required for children under 12 years of age.

Is the EU Digital COVID Certificate required to access and stay in resorts, hotels and residences?

Starting from 06 August 2021, resorts may require guests to show their certificate to access certain indoor services (e.g. indoor dining, spas and wellness centres, swimming pools and gyms, group activities and team sports).
Only in some cases the EU Digital COVID Certificate is a compulsory requirement to stay.

We suggest you to check in detail the measures adopted by each property and, if necessary, to obtain the certificate before your arrival.

 

If I make a reservation and then I'm not allowed to travel, do I lose what I paid for?

NO, you don't! The Code of Tourism provides that if there is a cause of force majeure that prevents the use of the booked service, the customer is entitled to compensation.

This means that, regardless of insurance, should there be any impediments imposed by law (such as lockdowns or measures prohibiting the entry of tourists) you will be entitled to a refund (or other form of compensation to be agreed with the supplier).

 

Is it useful to add a cancellation insurance policy to my booking?

Yes, in fact it's highly recommended. The services that you book for your holiday have cancellation policies that may include penalties depending on when you cancel. The insurance covers penalties that depend on individual, documented problems of the customer in using the service. For example, the insurance will compensate you if you contract an illness (including Covid-19) or suffer any other injury, or if you incur costs as a result of being forced to extend your stay due to quarantine, or if you are unable to go on holiday due to quarantine. To view all cases and conditions, please refer to the Information Sheet.
