What are the current rules for Britons when it comes to overseas travel?

From the 6th July, Brits can go on holiday or visit loved ones without having to self-isolate on return if travelling to countries with an air bridge deal.

The Department of Transport said: “This will mean that holidaymakers travelling to and from certain destinations will not need to self-isolate on either leg of their journey.”

It added that the list of exempt countries will be “kept under constant review, so that if the health risks increase, self-isolation measures can be re-introduced to help stop the spread of the disease into England.”
