After all this talk of air bridges and travel corridors from the
UK to other countries, they are finally here. But it can be quite
confusing to know what all of this means in practicality. What is
an air bridge? Essentially, it is an agreement between two
countries allowing people to travel between the two for a holiday
without needing to quarantine either end. This means that you won't
have to hole up in isolation for 14 days once you arrive in your
destination, or self-isolate at home once you return to the UK.
Basically, a normal holiday(ish).
With the ever-changing landscape of this pandemic, the list of
countries where you can go on holiday may fluctuate quite
considerably, so we wanted to make this a one-stop-shop page for
Covid-19 travel updates. The countries in the list below have the
green light for visitors, and we'll be updating it every day to
make sure it's as accurate as possible.
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 worrying 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.
Secondly, we're advocating our new 'Travel
Less, Travel Better' philosophy. Whether this means going on a
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.
We've been dreaming about travelling #OneDaySoon and now that
day is here.
