Where to go when: the best places to go on holiday

After months of lockdown and a series of travel bans, the world has slowly begun opening up to travel again. But it’s not all within reach just yet. The UK’s travel quarantine rules continue to change frequently as cases around the world spike and dip, leaving travellers wondering more than ever, where to go on holiday?

Where to go on holiday right now?

The most obvious option right now is a staycation, so for Brits that means a holiday in the UK. While some cities and counties have restrictions in place, much of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are available to explore, with UK hotels, cottages, restaurants, spas and campsites eager to welcome back travellers. For more inspiration, see our guide to the best places to visit in the UK.

For travel abroad, we recommend looking at the latest UK quarantine rules as well as our recommended list of where Brits can travel. These destinations are, however, changing daily as much of Europe is recording a second wave of coronavirus cases. If you aren’t able to self-isolate upon return to the UK we recommend you choose your destination very carefully and book holidays that are as flexible as possible. For more advice, see our guide to what happens to your holiday if there’s a second wave of coronavirus.
