Know before you go

The Cape Verde Archipelago is a developing nation and new to tourism. The islands are still in their embryonic stages although continually developing. Travellers are advised to have studied a reputable travel guide before their holiday. The majority of our customers are experienced travellers.

Transfers can be pre-arranged from each of the islands’ airports. It is also relatively simple to obtain an alugar or taxi available at all airports. Island tours can be pre-arranged. All vehicles and personnel have been assessed for reliability and safety. Any services arranged by yourselves through a hotel, or non-contracted organisations, are at your own risk, and the organisations’ own insurance. We will not accept responsibility for these separate arrangements.

Re-confirming internal flights

Cape Verde Airlines can re-schedule flights at a moments notice, due to operational reasons and island life. It is therefore very important that you reconfirm all internal flights 48 hours before departure. You can do this in person on the islands or call the numbers supplied in your ticket pack. Alternatively, you can ask the hotel reception to re-confirm them for you.

Flight Access

Destination flights can be arranged for any worldwide departures. From the UK there are many charter flights from Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Bristol. There are scheduled flights with TAP and MOROC from Europe.

Entry Requirements

All nationals require a full passport valid for a minimum of six months beyond the intended date of departure from Cape Verde. When you make a reservation with Cape Verde Travel we will arrange an entry visa on your behalf.

Health Advice

We strongly recommend that travellers take out adequate comprehensive health insurance, including the cost of medical evacuation. For medical advice contact your GP or UK Government.
