Is it safe to travel?
All operators, airlines, hoteliers and transport companies have gone to great length to ensure your travels are safe. You can find daily updates on the travel restrictions in place in different countries around the world here.
Will I need to isolate when I come back?
Fully vaccinated travellers arriving in England will need to take a lateral flow test from a private provider within two days of arrival. If you test negative you do not need to isolate. If you test positive you will need to stay at home and take a confirmatory PCR test. If this is positive you must self-isolate and take an NHS lateral flow test on days 6 and 7. If you test negative on both days you are released from self-isolation, if not you must continue to isolate until day 10. You can find out more about self-isolation rules here.
Where can I find information about testing and book my tests?
ExpressTest can facilitate all of the Covid testing required for travel. They have locations nationwide and are efficient and reliable. You can find out more about testing requirements and book your tests here.

Should I be worried about booking a holiday?
Any holidays booked through the Telegraph and 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.
