Updated 15/04/21 @ 18:00

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a halt to travelling worldwide. Many people have been left wondering when they will be able to travel and take a well needed holiday abroad.

When will we be able to travel again in the UK?
People are now able to travel in England and Wales. Self -contained holidays are open for people from the same household or support bubble to book.

Hotels and B&B’s are set to allow visitors from 17th May 2021 at the earliest for holidays. Essential business travel is still allowed under the current rules.

When will we be able to travel internationally?
Currently there is no simple answer to this. A number of milestones need to be reached in order for our borders to re open. Many countries across the world are currently experiencing high levels of infections and borders in many places are closed to all non-nationals.

Can I book International holidays for 2021?
The UK government has warned against booking holidays in summer 2021. The safest choice is to wait for a clear sign from our government before booking your holiday.

Countries which rely on tourism will most likely introduce extra measures to entice travellers back after the pandemic has passed to help them recover as much as possible from the pandemic.

Which will be the best countries to travel to?
Our predictions are that holidays to Dubai, Greece, Turkey and Maldives will be popular. Prices are likely to rise and we can see these already increasing from prices 2 years ago. Stay-cations have also seen a surge in demand with prices likely to rise once holidays in the UK are allowed again. Like previous years, there will still always be international holidays that cost the same as UK ones if you do your homework and shop around.

Vaccine passports
Vaccine passports likely to be required for International travel. Boris Johnson has given his clearest hint so far that vaccine passports are likely to be required for international travel. The Prime Minister said that they would definitely have a role to play when international travel resumes. “On the issue of vaccine certification, there’s definitely going to be a world in which international travel will use vaccine passports”.
