Covid-19 Guarantee Terms and Conditions

Should UK Government advice significantly change in the 3 days prior to arrival, we will reactivate the Guarantee for you.
Please be aware that if the cost of your new booking is higher than your original booking, then you’ll need to pay the difference.
The Covid-19 Flexibility Guarantee applies to bookings made directly with YHA (England & Wales) and excludes any bookings through third party sites.
The Covid-19 Flexibility Guarantee does not replace our Standard Booking Terms & Conditions. All other booking terms and conditions remain unchanged. The Guarantee will be reviewed regularly and is subject to change or removal without prior notice.
We are YHA.
We transform young lives forever through travel and real adventure.
Because where you go changes who you become.
To show how important travel and adventure is, we’ve taken it away from someone who depends on it… and given it to children who’ve been missing out.
