What Countries can I travel to?
The FCO has recently released their list of countries which us Brits are now allowed to travel to without exemption.
They have also provided the list of countries which will not require any self-isolation upon return to England as of 10th July. This has been made possible thanks to travel corridor exemption agreements between countries.
What about any changes in relation to Travel?
It is important to note that our travel insurance policies will only be valid if the FCO has marked your destination country as safe to travel. Before booking your holiday and travel insurance it is recommended that you check the latest FCO advice to ensure that your destination is safe to travel.
