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 more countries are starting to loosen restrictions, and a few more countries have been put on the UK’s ‘travel traffic light’ list leading to a surge in demand for travel to these places. Check out our UK Travel Traffic Light page here where you can find out all the important information on travelling right now & what this system means, exactly!

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.

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 on the UK Green Watchlist which means you will NOT to quarantine upon return to the UK, but you will still have to take a PCR COVID test on day 2 of your return.  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! Croatia, we’re coming for you.

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 NOT Green on the UK’s travel corridor list if you are travelling from the UK, which means you will need to quarantine as well as take a COVID test upon arrival back into the UK as it is currently on the Amber list. 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 as Mexico is on the Amber list buuuut this does change every 3 weeks so fingers are crossed.

 

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! However, Costa Rica has recently been moved onto the red list in the UK which means you cannot travel there for leisure right now.

So the final verdict:


HECK YEAH, you can go to Costa Rica! However, this is BIG BIG news because Costa Rica is one of the first countries to have declared itself back open for business! However, if you are travelling from the UK then you, unfortunately, cannot travel to Costa Rica as it is on the red list, but this is subject to change every 3 weeks so keep those fingers crossed!

GREECE

What’s the sitch in Greece? So Greece (aka destination of dreams) is NOT on the UK travel green list which means that you will have to quarantine as it is on the amber list. 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? Fully vaccinated travellers will not have to quarantine on return from amber countries but if you are not vaccinated you will still have to self isolate at home for 10 days. Check out our UK Traffic Light page for more info.

So the final verdict:


Yes, you can travel to the destination of dreams, Greece. If you are prepared to quarantine (if not fully vaccinated) & take a COVID test upon arrival back in the UK and 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.

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. You will also have to quarantine and take a COVID test if you are travelling from & back to the UK as Cambodia is on the UK's amber travel list.

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 from the UK you will need to quarantine and take a COVID test when travelling to & from the UK as Peru is not on the travel green list. It is currently on the red list.

So the final verdict:

Yes, as long as you are happy to quarantine & take a COVID test upon arrival back in the UK. However, the list is subject to being updated every 3 weeks.

 

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!
