Taking a holiday during the past two years has not been without its challenges. Indeed, when overseas travel has been possible at all, those heading abroad have been faced with a minefield of forms, tests and ever-changing border restrictions. But as we move forward, things are well and truly changing.

Travel made simple

As more countries welcome holidaymakers back, so more are removing Covid-related entry restrictions altogether. For fully vaccinated UK travellers it’s now possible to visit many destinations across Europe, and even some further afield, without the need for any testing or form-filling either before departure, on arrival, or when you return home. But it’s not just vaccinated travellers that are feeling the benefits, as travellers partially vaccinated or unvaccinated against Covid-19 will also find an ever-growing list of countries where no proof of vaccination is required, opening parts of the world to us all once more.

Luxury holidays without the hassle

Below, you’ll find links to collections of luxury holidays available to fully vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers, where no Covid-related restrictions apply. We hope you find plenty to inspire and do get in touch if you have any questions or would like to speak to us about planning your time away.

The information and recommendations on these pages are provided in good faith and we always recommend you check before you travel, as things can change. You’ll still need to follow any other entry requirements for your chosen destination, such as visas and other vaccinations, details of which you can find at the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) website.

Fully vaccinated travellers

While the range of destinations available for fully vaccinated UK travellers is now relatively extensive, there is a smaller group of countries which require nothing more than a simple download of an app to prove you're up to date with your jabs. So, while travellers in this group will have unfettered access to those destinations open to one and all, they'll also enjoy hassle-free holidays to a further, ever-growing range of countries. Featuring the likes of Italy, Spain and mainland Portugal, you'll find our top picks via the link below.

All travellers

While much of the world's reopening has favoured those fully vaccinated against Covid-19, there's now a growing list of destinations available to unvaccinated travellers, too. Keep things local with a tailor-made holidays around the UK or across the sea in Ireland. Otherwise, head north to Scandinavia to spot the Northern Lights, hike dramatic fjords or stay at the world-famous ICEHOTEL. To the south the Mediterranean beckons with island-hopping trips in Greece for the ultimate, hassle-free summer escape.
