I do not live in Wales. Can I travel to Wales to secure my boat, caravan or holiday home for winter?

Under the rules in Wales, a boat, caravan or holiday home owner from elsewhere in the UK may return to collect their belongings and secure their boat, caravan or holiday home for winter.

You should agree a time and date to visit the site. Whilst on site you should continue to observe social distancing measures. You are not permitted to stay overnight while these travel restrictions are in operation.

However, you will also need to check that what you are planning to do is allowed under the rules where you live, which the Welsh Government cannot advise you on.

Travel restrictions

Tourism and hospitality businesses must take all reasonable measures to minimise the risk of exposure to the virus and should not knowingly accept customers in breach of the travel restrictions. The obligation is on the individual although a business that encourages a breach may also commit an offence.

The current restrictions mean that people who live outside Wales are not allowed to travel to or remain in Wales unless there is a reasonable excuse.

Currently, to comply with the Law in Wales you can travel to collect your belongings and secure your caravan or holiday home for winter but are NOT PERMITTED TO STAY OVERNIGHT.  However, you need to check that your local Tier Restrictions permit travel into Wales for the day.  We have a legal responsibility to not knowingly accept customers in breach of travel restrictions and any guidance or advice given will be based on this.
