Being fully vaccinated does make travelling to non-red-list destinations easier and less costly – there are fewer tests to take and, from late October (exact date to be confirmed), if you are returning to England (but not
Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland) from certain designated destinations, certified lateral flow tests will replace the more expensive PCR tests. Details on how to obtain your NHS Covid Pass/Certificate proving your vaccination status can be found here
. This can also sometimes be used to prove your vaccination status to enter countries or territories that require visitors to be fully vaccinated, while other countries with this requirement may ask for different documentation. See www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice
for more information.
being fully vaccinated does not affect your ability to travel to/from the UK (you'll need to check if your chosen destination allows entry to travellers who have not been fully vaccinated), but it does entail taking extra tests and self-isolating for 10 days when you return to the UK. Full details are available on our country entry requirements
If you will not be fully vaccinated by the time of your holiday and feel unable to self-isolate and/or take the necessary tests, please tell us as soon as possible – if you contact us before your balance due date, your range of options is wider and more generous. See our flexible booking policies
page for more details.
