You may be wondering where you can go on holiday now restrictions have eased for domestic and international travel.

So, here’s a helpful guide about taking a break right here in the UK, or a little further afield!

Can I go on holiday in the UK now?

If you live in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland you are allowed to travel to, and stay overnight, in any of those countries.

Where can I go on holiday abroad?

International travel is permitted for UK travellers, but there are still a few restrictions in place depending on where you’re planning to go.  

Before you book a holiday, you’ll need to do some research to see if it’s possible to travel.

    • FCDO travel advice
      The FCDO advise on whether or not a country is safe to travel to. If advice for your destination is against ‘all travel’ or ‘all but essential travel’ it’s likely that you won’t be able to travel.

 

    • Country entry requirements
      Your holiday destination may have specific COVID-19 entry requirements such as proof of full vaccination, proof of a negative COVID-19 test, or a completed passenger locator form.

 

  • Returning to the UK
    As of 4am 18 March 2022, holidaymakers no longer need to take any COVID-19 tests on arrival in the UK. This applies to all travellers regardless of your vaccination status, or the country you have been visiting.

Travel advice can change at short notice, so be sure to check all of the above before you book your trip and then again just before you travel.

Book holidays with confidence

For the best financial protection, book a package holiday, rather than flights and accommodation separately. It’s really important to check that the package holiday is ATOL-protected.

Choosing a package holiday will also protect you against any changes in travel advice. In most cases, you’ll be offered to change your trip, or you can ask for a full refund.

Travel insurance for peace of mind

Whether you’re holidaying abroad, or somewhere a little closer to home, we have a travel insurance policy for just that. 

All new policies include generous COVID-19 cancellation cover as standard. So if you’re forced to cancel due to denied boarding with a positive test for COVID-19 or have a confirmed temperature above 38 degrees Celsius, we’ve got your back.
