Which? responds to the news France will lift its travel ban for vaccinated UK travellers

Rory Boland, Editor of Which? Travel, said:

“France’s decision to lift the UK travel ban for vaccinated tourists will be welcome news for anyone hoping to travel there soon. Fully vaccinated travellers will be required to book a Covid test via a private provider and show evidence of a negative result before arriving in France.

“However, international travel remains unpredictable and anyone booking a trip abroad could risk losing some or all of their money if rule changes mean they can no longer travel to their destination.

“If you’re planning a trip abroad, book a package holiday if possible, as these come with stronger financial protections, and choose a provider with a flexible booking policy to safeguard your money. A good travel insurance policy will continue to be essential, and it’s also advisable to book with a credit card to give yourself further protection.”
