will turkey become the new red list launderette

Sumary of Will Turkey become the new ‘red list’ launderette?:

  • Turkey could become the “quarantine launderette” of choice for travellers seeking to reach the UK from red list countries.
  • It was among eight nations, including Egypt, Sri Lanka and Kenya, removed from the UK’s highest risk category on Wednesday.
  • Hotel quarantine is no longer obligatory for arrivals, and travellers fully vaccinated in one of 55 countries approved by the UK need not self-isolate at home from 4 October (they can already avoid quarantine if vaccinated in the UK, EU or US).
  • But despite the reduction of red list nations, the UK still requires hotel quarantine – at a cost of £2,285 for solo travellers – from 54 countries.
  • Increasingly, many travellers are legally avoiding hotel quarantine by spending 10 full days in a third country on the amber or green list before continuing to the UK.While France, Germany and the Netherlands have good air links, they also have relatively high costs for travellers.
  • A couple who spent 11 nights in Istanbul’s Old City would pay the equivalent of £676 for accommodation, compared with £3,715 for hotel quarantine in the UK– though that cost includes three meals a day.
