Coronavirus updates

The latest Covid-19 travel information

5 March 2021 by David Warne

From Monday 8th March 2021, all travellers must complete a travel declaration form to confirm that they are legally allowed to travel abroad from England. You can download the form here. This form also outlines the various permitted reasons for travel.


To help combat the spread of COVID-19, there are restrictions on travel and transport from a number of countries to the UK. You can find the full, up-to-date list here.


Passengers arriving from all international destinations are now required to present a negative COVID-19 test result before departing for England to help protect against new strains of coronavirus circulating internationally.

Furthermore, passengers arriving from red-list destinations must quarantine for 10 days at a government-managed hotel at a cost of £1,750 per person to include transfers, accommodation and two PCR Covid-19 tests.

Arrivals from other countries will be required to pre-book a government-managed PCR test package at a cost of £210 per person (this is additional to existing mandatory pre-departure tests). Tests must be carried out on day 2 and day 8 after returning to England. Travellers arriving into the UK from these amber-list destinations are able to reduce the mandatory quarantine period by paying for a private Covid test 5 days after returning to the country. The day 8 government test must still be taken.


As the list of countries open for travel changes almost daily, we strongly advise that you check with the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) prior to booking and again before travelling.

It is important to note that FCDO advice is issued in relation to imminent travel (which typically means holidays departing in the next two weeks). If you have a booking with us departing within two weeks, we will contact you as a priority if the situation prevents travel to your destination.
