Safe Travel: 'Traffic Light' Destinations

Holiday destinations that are on the UK's Green travel list

Green-list countries you can travel to from the UK

The long awaited news on where we can start travelling to again, has been revealed by the UK government. Although the travel ban was lifted on 17 May, the new "traffic light system" will provide a guide to which holiday destinations are welcoming UK travellers again, and breakdown safe travel requirements for your arrival and return.

This new  information can be overwhelming, so if there is anything you are uncertain about, visit our testing guidance page for more information, or call our Trusted Advisers, who will be more than happy to help you.

Green destinations: what are the requirements for travel?
