There is always an element of risk that comes with booking a holiday. What if the apartment looks nothing like the pictures, or your chosen sun trap chooses that one week of August to be struck by a freak thunderstorm?
But the coronavirus pandemic has taken things to a whole new level. Even if you feel comfortable enough to book a trip abroad, you can’t know that the country won’t change its rules while you’re there, or whether the UK might slap your chosen destination back on the quarantine list.
That is exactly what happened to holidaymakers in Spain last month, and since then the likes of Belgium and the Bahamas have also had their air bridge statues revoked.
So where exactly can you go without needing to self-isolate? And which countries are most at risk of being re-added to the quarantine list? Here is everything you need to know about the most popular destinations…
Average cases per 100,000 people (last 14 days): 100.4
Spain was re-added to the UK’s quarantine list at the end July, meaning if you go there, you will have to self-isolate for 14 days upon your return.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is advising against all but essential travel to Spain, meaning you also cannot get travel insurance.
