Britons are eager to jet off to somewhere hot this summer after a year of being bound to our homes and travel restricted. Staycations aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, and many of us are desperate to hop on a plane and explore the world without masks covering our faces. When can we go on holiday, and what will the rules be?
At present, the Government rules state: “You should minimise travel where possible”.
This means Brits should avoid making unnecessary trips unless absolutely necessary.
International travel is out of bounds right now, unless you have a “reasonable excuse to leave the UK”, such as work, education, medical treatment, or providing care for a vulnerable person.
A relaxing holiday by the Mediterranean sea isn’t possible at the moment, according to the strict rules.
In fact, a new law has been introduced to police Brits breaking the rules. Anyone caught travelling outside the UK without a reasonable excuse will be fined £5,000.
The ban doesn’t apply to UK citizens with property abroad who need to travel to buy or sell a property.
