How to help prevent travel plans being ruined by COVID-19
Although the UK Government have given the go ahead to ending many of the current COVID related restrictions, including international travel, there are still a number of questions surrounding travel due to COVID-19 and its unpredictability causing hesitancy amongst travellers.

Particularly with regards to which destinations you can travel to, which countries are granting entry to UK tourists, and which travel advice to follow when there is another in place, such as the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) travel advisories.
