But what are the rules for traveling during the lockdown? And what is the current status of the quarantine list in Great Britain? Here is everything you need to know …
Can I go on vacation while it is blocked?
It is against the law to vacation in England during lockdown. Anyone caught doing this can be fined from £ 200 to £ 6,400.
International travel is also illegal in Wales, while it is discouraged, but not illegal, in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The suspension for England ends on December 2nd. So you’ll have to wait at least until this date to go away.
Can I book a trip after it’s blocked?
When the lockdown ends, England is expected to return to a regional system of restrictions.
So far, international travel has been allowed on all three levels, but there is still no indication whether this will continue to be the case.
If you are planning to book a trip after the lockdown, be aware that there is a chance that the national shutdown will be extended beyond December 2nd.
Boris Johnson has insisted the lockdown end as planned, but other ministers have been caged. Health Secretary Matt Hancock said it was “too early to say” when restrictions will be eased.
Where can I go without quarantining?
If you are planning on leaving, it is important to understand that the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is currently advising against non-essential travel to all but a few countries.
If you go to a place that is not on the approved list, you will not be able to get travel insurance and it can be difficult to get a refund if your trip is canceled.
The list of travel corridors in the UK is much smaller than it was a few months ago, and there are only a handful of countries you can travel to without being quarantined at both ends.
These are Iceland, Chile, Cambodia, Laos, Turks and Caicos Islands, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar as well as the Greek islands of Corfu, Crete, Kos, Rhodes and Zakynthos (Zante).

Here are a number of countries that don’t require quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in the UK:
Will the quarantine be reduced?
There is hope that the quarantine period could soon be reduced from 14 to seven days.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps told the Airport Operators Association this week: “We have made very good progress on a test-to-release program that will be launched once we are no longer locked.
“This will consist of a single UK arrival test, carried out by the private sector and at a cost to the passenger, allowing for a greatly reduced self-isolation time.”
