Travel Advice: Where can I travel after Covid-19?

Updated 06 Oct

With positive signs for travel opportunities ahead, it makes sense to start making firm plans if you want to travel in 2021 or 2022. We are experiencing high demand as many people book long-awaited adventures, so if you have been dreaming of popular itineraries like Hadrian's Wall Path and the Camino de Santiago, we would advise booking as early as you can.

A lot of travellers are understandably looking for advice on when and where to travel, so we have summarised this here. Of course, we don't set the rules! We can only advise on what we know from the latest official government advice, and we would always recommend you check this for any destination you are considering. Any plans you do make are backed up by our peace of mind guarantee, so if you do need to make changes, you can do so free of charge.

Where can I travel?

Using the form below will also give you guidance about travelling to and from any destination, to help you make informed travel choices and prepare to begin your next adventure. Make sure your select your home destination, passport-type, dates, and vaccination status to find the most relevant links and information.


Travel abroad from the UK (After 4 October 2021)

For England, the government advice states: "From 4am Monday 4 October 2021, the rules for international travel to England will change from the red, amber, green traffic light system to a single red list of countries and simplified travel measures for arrivals from the rest of the world. The rules for travel from countries and territories not on the red list will depend on your vaccination status."

Anyone fully vaccinated travelling into England from a non-red list country will need to book (in advance) and pay for a Covid-19 test on Day 2 after arrival, and complete a locator form within 48 hours before arrival. Quarantine restrictions and other rules apply if arriving from a red list country or if you are not fully vaccinated. Read more about arriving in England >

The government in Scotland have changed to a similar simplified format of just one red-list, read more on Scotland specific advice here >

Travel into Wales or Northern Ireland may also vary.

Northern Ireland

Travel into Northern Ireland from the common travel area which includes other parts of the UK is permitted (although there are still Covid-19 test requirements). A traffic light style system is now in place to allow travel between Northern Ireland and other countries. Whilst the traffic light system roughly reflects that of England, there may be variations so you should always check.

In general you should always check government websites for your departure and destination countries, including any countries you may transit through (official information here for residents of England, and links to Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland's sources).
