With England’s roadmap out of lockdown unveiled, many are feeling more optimistic about an end to the coronavirus pandemic being in sight.

In 2020 the coronavirus pandemic brought rules and restrictions which meant very few holidays were able to go ahead.

The road to freedom is still a while off, but many are now wondering if they can think about booking holidays.

Currently all non-essential travel is banned, but Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined when travel might resume.

The end to lockdown is slow and cautious, and is being done in four stages, but the plan does suggest holidays will be able to restart soon.

Below, we take a closer look at what we know about holidays so far.

When can I go on holiday?

At the moment, the earliest you’re looking at going on a holiday abroad is May 17.

But the current ban on international travel will only be eased pending a review by the Travel Taskforce on April 12.

This is when we are likely to know more about whether we can confidently book holidays.

If England fails to meet the four tests outlined by the government, the date could be pushed back.

It’s not until stage three where you can go on holiday with people from another household, or visit a hotel or B&B in England.

Stage three, which will start at the earliest May 17, you can meet in a group of up to six people – known as the rule of six.

It isn’t until stage four, which will start from June 21 at the earliest, where limits on all social interactions will be scrapped.
