Where Can You Still Go On Holiday?

  • October 21 2020

There are still holiday destinations available, and more being added, and they are welcoming British tourists, as long as they have a negative coronavirus test result.

European and Caribbean islands are introducing the new restrictions as a means to reduce the chance of COVID-19 infections on the islands, as TUI announce that long haul flights to the Caribbean will resume in November, reports the Express.

However, families who will be wanting to get a test for the coronavirus will need to get it done privately, as only those with symptoms or have been told by their doctor to get a test can get it done on the NHS - travel reasons are not included. Private tests can cost between £100 and £200 per person

Some destinations, like Seychelles and Barbados, not only require tests but also impose 5-day quarantines on arrival while the results of a second test are processed. Similar measures may be introduced in Spain, particularly for Majorca, Ibiza, and Tenerife. Only a few destinations, such as Germany or Greece do not currently require quarantine for British tourists.

Here are the countries that do not require quarantine, but do need a negative test result.



British tourists must have a negative test result taken 72 hours before entering the country. Tourists without a result can get one for free at the airport, but will then have to quarantine until given the results.

While most airports offer the tests, some are thought to only offer it between 9 am and 5 pm, causing confusion for incoming arrivals.


Madeira and the Azores

Mainland Portugal remains on the UK's quarantine list, but the islands Madeira and the Azores do not. As with Italy, a negative result from a test taken up to 72 hours before arrival is needed, as well as several other documents to be filled in when entering the country.
