Want to know where you can go on holiday right now? Here’s a helpful guide about taking a break right here in the UK, and finally, a little further afield!
Can I go on holiday in the UK now?
Rules and restrictions vary depending on where you live in the UK. 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 many restrictions in place.
Before you book a holiday, you’ll need to do some research to see if it’s possible to travel.
- Country entry requirements:
Your holiday destination may have entry requirements which prevent you from visiting as a UK citizen. Find out if your destination has any entry requirements.
- Traffic light system:
The government says you must not take a holiday in any country on the red list, but it is technically not illegal to do so. From 19 July, fully vaccinated travellers can also visit amber list countries without needing to quarantine on return. Find out what the traffic light system means for your holiday.
- FCDO travel advice:
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. Check the FCDO website for the latest information on whether or not a country is safe to travel to.
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 or being asked to self-isolate by Test and Trace, we’ve got your back.
