Unsurprisingly, the ever-changing restrictions can prove confusing.

These are the latest travel advice updates from the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) for the major holiday destinations Spain, Greece, France and Portugal.

Spain

The FCDO advise against all non-essential travel to Spain, including the Balearic and Canary Islands.

“This advice is based on evidence of increases in cases of COVID-19 across Spain,” said the FCDO.

“The FCDO is not advising those already travelling in Spain to leave at this time.

“Travellers should follow the advice of the local authorities on how best to protect themselves and others, including any measures that they bring in to control the virus.

“If you are returning from Spain you will be required to self-isolate on your return to the UK, but the FCDO is not advising you to cut short your visit.”

Those Britons who do go to Spain will be subject to the following three requirements:

- Undergo a visual health assessment

Greece

The FCDO advise against all but essential travel to the islands of Lesvos, Tinos, Serifos, Mykonos, Crete, Santorini and Zakynthos.

You should follow the advice of the local authorities on how best to protect yourself and others, including any measures that they bring in to control the virus. Contact your travel operator if you have any questions about your return journey.
