What To Know About Booking A Half-Term Family Holiday

Spain will allow UK travellers to enter for a holiday from May 24 – but does that mean you should jet off for a sunny half-term holiday?

Although the Spanish government wants to welcome British holidaymakers, the country is still on the Department for Transport’s amber travel list, meaning non-essential travel isn’t advised.

The UK government has asked the public not to travel to amber list countries for leisure purposes and has said travel to these places should only be in certain circumstances, such as unavoidable business, a funeral or caring for a relative. This is guidance, and not law, so some travel operators are still selling trips.

Those returning from an amber country are asked to quarantine for 10 days when they arrive back to the UK – but there are concerns parents might skip the isolation and send children back into school, to avoid school absence fines.

Because of this, HuffPost understands families will not be penalised where they are following public health advice by quarantining or self-isolating, meaning fines are waved.
