People in England are being told to avoid all non-essential travel in the UK and abroad as part of a new month-long lockdown.
This means from 5 November to 2 December, foreign holidays and overnight stays anywhere in the UK are banned.
The government’s decision to impose a second coronavirus lockdown in England will leave thousands with November travel plans disappointed.
The government has said people in England should stay at home during the lockdown period and “there is no exemption for staying away from home on holiday – this includes staying in a second home”.
This means that overnight stays – apart from within a support bubble – are banned within the UK and abroad.
England’s lockdown begins on Thursday 5 November, so the rules only apply from 12.01am that day.
This means you can fly out of the UK before then, but may be subject to quarantines both when you arrive at your destination and when you come back.
“Those currently on a domestic holiday will be allowed to finish their holidays, but are still subject to the requirements in England not to go out without a reasonable excuse,” guidance states.
Passengers arriving home from abroad before 5 November will be able to travel back as normal as flights are operating at regular capacity.
