Coronavirus Holiday Update

Coronavirus Holiday Update - 15th July 2021

From 17th May 2021, the UK Government removed the law prohibiting international travel meaning you are now free to book and travel overseas. Whilst there are various restrictions and guidelines in place, many of your favourite holiday destinations are now accessible to visit.

The Foreign and Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) has removed the advice against all but essential travel and is now allowing travel to selected destinations

As part of lifting the ban, the Department of Transport issued a ‘Traffic Light’ system for arrivals entering the United Kingdom. The ‘Green List’ destinations will allow all arrivals to enter the UK without quarantine whilst ‘Amber List’ countries will allow arrivals to enter the UK but are required to quarantine on return, however, NHS vaccinated UK citizens are not required to quarantine from an Amber list destination. Click here for the full Government Traffic Light guidelines.

The latest updates on destinations that we feature on and can be found here on the current Green List of countries issued by the Department of Transport.

The traffic light system is expected to be updated every three weeks with at least one weeks’ notice of any changes. So now, not only can you book your holiday, you can now travel on holiday. Search now for your next holiday for discounted holidays and deposits as low as £39pp plus 0% payment schemes*
