The question on everybody's lips is 'Where can I go on holiday now?' Well, the good news is that from the 19th July fully-vaccinated travellers - and those under the age of 18 – will no longer need to isolate for ten days on return to England from Amber List countries, so we’ve updated this page to include both Green and Amber List destinations. If you visit one of the countries listed below you won't
need to quarantine on your return to the UK if it is on the Green List or if it is on the Amber List and you are fully vaccinated or under 18 (although you will need to test negative before travel, before returning to England, and when you're back).
If you are not fully-vaccinated and visit one of the Amber List destinations, you will still need to quarantine for ten days at home on your return, but you can make use of the Government's Test to Release scheme, so you can break quarantine after five days if you test negative. As you can see, it can get a tad confusing, but our destination experts are great at navigating the ever-changing landscape of this pandemic to help you plan your perfect holiday. The list of countries where you can go on holiday may fluctuate, so we wanted to make this a one-stop-shop page for Covid-19 travel updates.

This is the first time we went on a trip with Original Travel,
a specialist advisor who listens to our expectations, and really
the feeling of being pampered from departure to arrival.
The concierge service is so efficient that we quickly become addicted.
The countries in the list on this page are those currently on the Green List and Amber List, and we'll be updating it every day to make sure it's as accurate as possible. If you're keen on anywhere in particular and want to know more, then our region-specific specialists are just a phone call away. Please also note that while destinations might be on the Government's Green List or Amber List, some of these countries may have their own travel restrictions for the time being. Also, countries on the Green Watchlist are liable to be removed at short notice. Please ask for clarification when you speak to our expert consultants.
So that covers the question of where can I go on holiday, but what about the how? For starters, we know that the booking experience is probably a little more concerning now than it has been before, so our Coronavirus Confidence page has all the details of everything we're doing to make the experience of booking and travelling as smooth as possible. You can book with confidence, knowing that all of our holidays are ABTA and ATOL bonded; that we're offering even more flexibility on all new Original Travel trips; that we now offer travel insurance covering coronavirus cancellations and that you'll have a pain-free airport experience as you're met on arrival and escorted through the check-in and security checks to a lounge by somebody who knows all the best airport access hacks (subject to availability).
Secondly, we're advocating our new 'Travel Less, Travel Better' philosophy. Whether this means going on a multi-stop road trip to Europe from the UK rather than flying, or simply lingering longer in your chosen destination to get to know it a little better, we can, as always, organise private tours and experiences and book you the best most charming accommodation around to make the most of your precious holiday time.
