Where Can I Travel Right Now?

WHERE CAN I TRAVEL RIGHT NOW?

We’re trying not to get too excited, but after such an awful year, it’s hard not to when some light starts to emerge at the end of the tunnel. We don’t wanna get anyone’s hopes up but there have been reports of two vaccines which have been very good test results, more countries are starting to loosen restrictions, and a few more countries have been put on the UK’s ‘travel corridor’ list leading to a surge in demand for travel to these places.

This all sounds like good news to us. We just want to be able to travel again, and when we can, we will be singing the words of the legendary Axel Rose- From Guns & Roses for those of you too young to know who the hell he is - “Where do we go now?’’ And where indeed do we go now? Well, that depends on a few things. First and foremost, is the country you want to go to lettings tourists in at the moment? If not, when will they be? Will there be a quarantine period? Or will you need a negative COVID test to enter? We set up our ‘’Where can we travel to” page to answer these very questions, so we try and keep that page updated with all the deets. But we got excited, we wanted to write this blog to summarise the new developments and the places we can go to right now or very soon.

MEXICO

Wondering when you can fill up on tacos & tequila? Or when you can lie on a white sandy beach again? Well, Mexico has NO travel restrictions for travellers in place at the moment with commercial flights running to and from! There is also no quarantine period upon arrival in Mexico. However, Mexico is still NOT on the UK’s travel corridor list, which means you will need to quarantine upon arrival back into the UK. You will also need to provide contact and journey details when leaving the country. Don’t know about you though but if that means I can go on sip on a tequila sunrise or two whilst basking in the Mexican sunshine then sign me up! Vamos A La Playa!

So the final verdict:


YES, you can travel to Mexico! However, only if you are prepared to quarantine upon arrival back in the UK.

 

COLOMBIA

Colombia is calling! Tourists can enter Colombia as long as you have proof of a negative COVID test from the last 96 hours. You will have to fill out an immigration form 24 hours before departure. Lastly, once in Colombia, you should follow up with health checks via the ‘Coron-app’. The best bit, when arriving in Colombia, there is NO quarantine period. Colombia is not on the UK Travel corridor list, meaning you will have to quarantine upon return to the UK. So the decision is yours to make!

So the final verdict:


Can you travel to Colombia NOW? Yes, you can, as long as you are happy to quarantine once you’ve arrived back in the UK.

 

COSTA RICA

Live that Pura Vida, baby! You can now travel to Costa Rica, with no proof of a negative COVID test and no quarantine period! AMAZING! All you need is to fill out an electronic form in advance to receive a health pass, a QR Code enabling you to cross the Costa Rican border and health insurance! BOOM, that’s it. Although, you will still need to quarantine upon arrival back in the UK, as it is not on the travel corridor list.

So the final verdict:


HECK YEAH you can go to Costa Rica, as long as you are prepared to quarantine when back in the UK. However, this is BIG BIG news because Costa Rica is one of the first countries to have declared itself back open for business!

GREECE

What’s the sitch in Greece? So Greece (aka destination of dreams) is NOT on the UK travel corridor which means that you will have to quarantine upon arrival back in the UK. However, this does not include the islands of Corfu, Crete, Kos, Rhodes and Zakynthos, as they are exempt to the quarantine rule, WINNING. If you do travel to Greece, you will need to complete a Passenger Locator Form 24 hours before you go as well as proof of a negative COVID test at least 48 hours before. Will you need to quarantine upon arrival? Possibly yes, if you are chosen for a health screening when arriving in Greece, and given a COVID test, then you will have to self isolate for 14 days. Like most European countries, Greece was also in lockdown from the 1st of November until the 30th of November.

So the final verdict:


Yes, you can travel to the destination of dreams, Greece. If you are prepared to quarantine upon arrival back in the UK (unless on the islands that are exempt from the rule) and POSSIBLY when arriving in Greece. Then go on, book yo’ tickets and get ready to eat all the halloumi & pitta your heart desires. For more information on travelling to Greece, check here.

CROATIA

When thinking of Croatia, of course, Game Of Thrones, fantastic beaches, and sailing the clear blue sea all come to mind, but can we travel to Croatia? Croatia is NOT on the UK travel corridor list which means you will have to quarantine upon arrival back in the UK. However, when arriving in Croatia, there are no quarantine rules for travellers, although there are regional restrictions on travel within Croatia. Upon arrival in Croatia, there is an online form that visitors must fill out.

So the final verdict:


YES, you can travel to Croatia, as long as you are happy to quarantine when back in the UK. Croatia, we’re coming for you.

 

INDIA

As of now, India is not open to international flights and tourists. However, the Indian government has announced that they are hoping to reopen their borders to international visitors soon. BUT this is good news to hear, and hopefully, soon we can get back to travelling to this amazing country. When travel resumes to India, you will need to check the guidelines in place, as they are ever-changing. For now, get to planning your Indian adventure, so when borders are open you can catch that first flight outta here! All our fingers are crossed (and we mean all)!

CAMBODIA

YES. Cambodia is open. Can you tell we’re excited? You can travel to Cambodia if you have proof of a negative COVID test at least 72 hours before, proof of insurance and also a visa before arrival. However, you will have to quarantine upon arrival in Cambodia for 14 days either at a hotel or a government facility as well as another COVID test on the 13th day of quarantine. The GOOD news though is that you do not have to quarantine upon arrival back in the UK, woohoo!

So the final verdict:

If you're prepared to quarantine upon arrival in Cambodia then yes, you can travel to Cambodia. You do you.

 

PERU

Peru is open! Yaaass! International travel resumed on the 5th of October within the Latin America region. You will need to have proof of a negative COVID test at least 72 hours before arriving in Peru. However, suppose you do travel to Peru. In that case, you will need to quarantine upon arrival back into the UK, as Peru is not on the UK travel corridor list.

So the final verdict:

Yes, as long as you are happy to quarantine upon arrival back in the UK.

 

So, we know normality hasn’t been completely restored, and we can’t travel freely everywhere just yet, BUT there is light at the end of the tunnel, countries are starting to open again, and things are looking up. So our fingers are crossed, but until then these are the places we can travel to and make those dreams a reality, again. So catch you on the flip side, TruFam!

 

Don't Quit Your Daydream.
