Where's open for travel?
Many destinations are welcoming passengers from the UK, but each country has different rules for entry and the requirements are also likely to be different depending on whether you’re fully vaccinated or not.
It’s important that you check local government guidance before planning your trip. You can do this by searching our interactive map in the COVID-19 Travel Hub, which has country-by-country guidance on entry requirements.
If you’re looking to book your next adventure here are some of the destinations we can whisk you off to.
New easier rules when returning to the UK
Good news: there are now more options and fewer barriers for passengers who have been fully vaccinated for 14 days or longer. As of 4 October, the traffic light system has been replaced with a new, simplified system for travellers returning to the UK. There’s now just a Red List and Rest of World List.
If you’re fully vaccinated and travelling from a non red list country:
For all flights arriving in the UK after 24 October 2021
- You’ll need to complete a passenger locator form before you return to the UK.
- You will need to show proof of vaccination.
- You won’t need to take a test before you return to the UK if you’re fully vaccinated.
- But you will need to take a test within 2 days of your return.
- Rules on the day 2 testing requirements may differ for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland so please check local government guidance before you travel.
Children aged 17 and under who are residents of the UK, or from a country with approved vaccination status are considered fully vaccinated when returning to the UK. Country specific guidance is available here.
If you’re unvaccinated, you can still travel abroad but local entry guidance will be different and what you need to do to re-enter the UK will be different too. Visit the government’s advice page for more information.
*If you use a vaccine certificate it must be issued by a national or state public health authority. It should be in English, Spanish or French and contain mandatory information that can be found here. Please note that the UK government does not allow us to accept an NHS vaccine card as proof of vaccination, so please apply for the NHS Covid Pass in plenty of time before you travel.
What does the Red List mean?
If arriving from a Red List country, the rules haven’t changed. Whether vaccinated or not, you still need to pre-book a mandatory 11-night quarantine hotel package for your arrival in the UK, which will include the day 2 and day 8 PCR tests. You must only fly into a designated airport.
