Rory Boland, Which? Travel Editor, said:
“The often contradictory advice and rules on where you should and shouldn’t travel to from different government departments have been difficult for travellers to understand and navigate. This move, which creates a more unified set of rules, is welcome news for those hoping to book holidays or visit friends and family abroad.
“It remains crucial to also check the rules of entry of the country you are travelling to, as several retain restrictions on entry by UK residents as well as having specific rules on the need for tests if you are unvaccinated. This is especially important with the half term holidays fast-approaching and many under-18s in the UK being unvaccinated. If you don’t meet the entry requirements of the country you are travelling to, you won’t be able to board the plane or get your money back.”
