Rio de Janeiro Holiday: coronavirus information

Flight-inclusive Rio de Janeiro holiday packages and Rio de Janeiro Flight-Plus arrangements created by you on Expedia.co.uk are financially protected by the ATOL scheme.

Most Rio de Janeiro hotels also offer free cancellation. Consider booking refundable hotels rather than non-refundable ones. Just look for the ‘free cancellation’ message during your hotel search. Prices can vary, but right now we believe that flexibility matters.

Rio de Janeiro Beach Holiday

Relax on the shore as you watch the sunlight flickering on the water on your Rio de Janeiro holiday. If you're craving the complete beach experience, a trip to Rio de Janeiro will definitely deliver. You've probably heard of Icarai Beach (4 miles (7 km) away). We recommend booking your hotel nearby. However, plenty of sightseers also choose Rio de Janeiro holiday deals closer to Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach or Grumari Beach, two other magnificent nearby options.
