Upload your COVID-19 travel documents in advance and enjoy a smooth start to your trip.

It’s as simple as this:

  2. Upload your travel documents via Simply Upload, as part of the online check-in process.
  3. Have your documents approved before your trip and travel with peace of mind.

Please note: this is an optional service. If, for whatever reason, it’s not possible to approve your documents before you fly, you can still present your documents at the airport as you usually would.

We take the protection of your personal information seriously – please read our privacy policy to find out what steps we are taking to protect your privacy.

Simply responsible

From disinfected planes to contactless check-in, safety is always a priority.

We work hard to ensure maximum safety during your travel, with social distancing measures, thorough cleaning of aircraft, the use of face masks, and various other measures.

Simply reassuring

If your flight is cancelled and you're stranded, we'll find you a way home.

Additionally, it's reassuring to know that some of our fare options (for example, our Economy Flex and Saga Premium Flex fares) have built-in flexibility and understanding.

Simply covered

Safeguard your travels with our cancellation protection and medical insurance.

If you'd like extra reassurance for your travels, you can choose to be covered for potential costs, such as cancellations or medical treatment during your trip (including coverage for COVID-19).

You can add this travel protection during the booking process. Read more on our Covid Plus Medical Cover* and on our Cancellation Protection.
