Holidays: Full list of ‘safe’ countries you can travel to without quarantine now


Whether it’s for holiday or work purposes, many are desperate to travel domestically and internationally. However, coronavirus still means the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is currently advising against all non-essential international travel.This advice, while not making travel illegal, makes it nearly impossible to get travel insurance.

The FCO says this advice is under constant review, but the decision to apply the current advice indefinitely, rather than for a set period of time, has a significant impact on holiday plans.

Original guidelines meant those travelling between France and the UK would be exempt from this rule, however, this has now been abandoned.

In one statement from the Prime Minister in late May, he revived hopes overseas summer holidays could still happen this side of January, after suggesting the UK could have ‘air bridge’ agreements in place by the end of June.

Air bridges would allow British holidaymakers to travel to certain countries without the need to quarantine on arrival, or when they return home.

Most countries are still completely barring travellers from outside of Europe, but restrictions are expected to ease over the summer period.

However, this has not been confirmed by the Government and is still under negotiation with partner countries.

So, as it currently seems, holidays, domestic or international, will not be permitted until at least July, when travel restrictions could possibly be lifted if the UK enters stage three of the lockdown.
