Holidays abroad this summer are back on the calendar as ministers confirmed a host of new destinations sun-seekers can travel to without having to quarantine.
This afternoon (June 24) the government’s much-anticipated announcement of which destinations would be added to the green list was shared.
A number of popular summer destinations were named, including Barbados, Bermuda, Grenada, Madeira, Ibiza and Malta.
In a press conference, transport secretary Grant Schnapps confirmed that people entering the UK from 16 places will not have to quarantine from 04:00 on June 30.
He also said the government intended to allow quarantine-free travel from amber list countries for people who were fully vaccinated “later in the summer”.
Currently, the cheapest flights you can book from Bristol Airport is to Ibiza, which would set you back around £49.
