The travel rules have changed once again, leading many of the UK’s favourite holiday destinations to drop testing rules almost entirely. If you’re looking to book a getaway over the coming weeks or even thinking about your summer holiday, there’s never been more choice than right now.

Provided you’re fully vaccinated, all testing has now been dropped for Greece, Austria, Sweden, Switzerland, and Portugal, so whether you’re looking for a city break, a beach trip or a chance to disconnect, there are plenty of places for you to escape to without needing to test at all.

It’s worth bearing in mind that some destinations require you to have had your booster if your last vaccination was more than 270 days ago, so please make sure you check the rules of the country you’re planning to visit before you travel.

If you’re not fully vaccinated, you may still be subject to some testing requirements. If you are fully vaccinated but would still like to take a test for peace of mind, we also offer Test Only options. Choose one of ExpressTest’s conveniently-located testing centres around the country and leave the testing to us, so you can get on with enjoying a well-deserved break.
