Which? comments as government removes amber list quarantine requirements for double vaccinated travellers

Rory Boland, Which? Travel Editor, said:

“Quarantine restrictions being eased for fully vaccinated travellers and children should make some international travel easier this summer, however it’s important that people take into consideration the barriers that could still prevent them from travelling before rushing to book, to save them being left out of pocket.

“Other countries continue to impose restrictions for UK arrivals, and it’s been suggested several millions of people could have plans disrupted if they are told to self-isolate after a coronavirus exposure. It’s essential then that anyone looking to book a holiday looks for a good package holiday provider with a flexible booking policy, as well as comprehensive travel insurance cover, to protect them against these risks.

“The government must also urgently clarify if Foreign Office travel warnings against amber list countries are due to be lifted, as without that change it will be extremely difficult for holidaymakers to get travel insurance for trips to those destinations.”
