Here at Holidaysafe HQ we understand that after months of staring at the same four walls, most of us are now daydreaming about exotic beaches, beautiful cities – or simply going somewhere different for a change in scenery. However, with ever-changing advice from the Government, it can be difficult to know where we can actually go.
Never fear – we’re here to inspire you with some of the many destinations which have been deemed ‘safe’ to visit by the Government (a full and up to date list can be found here), and do not require you to self isolate upon return (a full and up to date list can be found here).
Disclaimer: Information correct at the time of writing this blog (27/10/2020) – please ensure you check the FCDO’s website for up to date safety information on destinations before booking and travelling.
This excludes mainland Spain and the Balearic Islands. The Canary Islands offer great temperatures year-round, plus a smorgasbord of landscapes from forests and waterfalls to beaches and lava fields! On arrival you will not be asked to self-isolate, but you will need to provide the Spanish Ministry of Health with mandatory contact information and any history of exposure to COVID-19 48 hours prior to travel, plus a temperature check and a ‘visual health assessment’.
Many people focus on the popular Greek Islands, and forget the mainland, which is steeped in beauty, history and culture. You must complete an online Passenger Locator Form at least 24 hours before your arrival in Greece. Once you submit this, you will be sent a confirmation email and a QR code, which will be scanned upon arrival. The Greek authorities may then ask you to complete a COVID-19 test, and to isolate until they receive the results.
If you’re craving a Caribbean paradise to blow away the lockdown cobwebs, then Cuba is the place for you. Some airports have not fully re-opened yet, so make sure you do some research before booking. All passengers will have a PCR test on arrival (free of charge) and must complete a Health Declaration Form with the address of where they will be staying.
If your travel wish list includes sun-soaked beaches, warm hospitality, and ancient history, then Cyprus is the place for you. The UK is in Cyprus’ Category B, which means that travellers must provide a negative COVID-19 test result on arrival, obtained within 72 hours before travel. You must also complete a Cyprus Flight Pass before travelling.
These are specific parts of Portugal which both offer some amazing weather and holiday activities. The Azores is perfect for sailing, whale-watching, hiking and much more, whereas Madeira offers black sand beaches and wine tasting. Before you arrive in either destination you will need to complete a passenger questionnaire, and upload the results of a COVID-19 test 72 hours before you travel.
