6 Hopeful Holiday Destinations For 2021
- Las Vegas
- Disneyland Paris
A few days ago, the UK government unveiled a few destinations Brits could safely travel abroad to for non-essential travel along with the terms for doing so.
The green list of holiday destinations has the least restrictions. With the amber and red list next in line with tougher conditions.
The available places to travel to on the green list are quite sparse. Some of the islands that have made the list include Portugal, Israel, and Singapore.
For travellers, the green list is ideal for an almost fuss free holiday. For example, they mostly require two covid tests, without the need to quarantine when returning to the UK.
But if Brits want to travel to the destinations on the amber list, the implications increase, as does the cost.
Although it’s essential to keep in mind that the traffic light system for non-essential travel marks the very beginning of the holiday industry reopening safely to the public.
And while people in the UK may be eager to get away after a long and arduous year. There’s hope that should the infection rates remain low in the UK and other countries. More boarding gates will open to accommodate travel abroad.

However, when new destinations do emerge, it’s essential to capture a holiday space quickly! Because when demand for holidays strikes travel agents online, the prices increase.
Those planning on pre-empting a holiday destination of choice will emerge onto the green list in the coming weeks by booking in advance. Should first check the current rules on the government website beforehand for their destination. And look at the terms and conditions of their holiday booking. To ensure that if their holiday destination remains or moves to the red list, they can easily change or cancel their holiday.
