Travel to amber list destinations is permitted. From 19th July 2021, if you live in England and have received two vaccinations 14 days or more before travelling, then you do not need to isolate at home on your return. You will still need to take tests before and after travelling home, and should always check the entry requirements of your holiday destination.

Should I be worried about booking a holiday?

Any holidays booked through Tripsmiths are financially protected by the tour operator operating the tour, either through ABTA, AITO, ABTOF, TTA (or similar) and/or ATOL, meaning the government's travel financial protection schemes will refund you should travel restrictions prevent you from going or cause the trip to be cancelled.
