Lockdown restrictions are starting to ease in the UK with travel rules easing for many Britons.
Next week will mark “Freedom Day” (July 19) which will see almost all legal restrictions on social contacts removed.
Vacation abroad is expected to resume as more countries are added to the government’s green list.
Restrictions on Orange List destinations have also been lifted – UK holidaymakers who have been fully vaccinated can travel to and from Orange List countries without having to self-quarantine.
Many will choose to spend their next vacation closer to home, however, as the demand for “stays” increases.
