major boost with UK holidaymakers taking double amber risk – .

Thousands of holidaymakers are now poised to head to “orange” list destinations due to speculation quarantine rules could be relaxed for double-stung travelers.
Research by battleface, a travel insurance provider, found that almost half of those polled said they would consider taking a vacation to Spain this summer.

The study, involving 2,000 people, found that 64% of those aged 18 to 34 and 52% of those aged 35 to 55 would consider taking a break in Spain despite the restrictions.

The other top destinations considered are Italy and Portugal, both at 46 percent, while 45 percent are considering Greece and 42 percent are considering a vacation in France.

Outside of Europe, 37% of people who responded said they would consider a vacation to the United States this summer.

All of these discussed destinations are currently classified as orange by the UK government. This means that Covid-19 testing and self-isolation are required by travelers upon their return to the UK.

With many destinations also requiring vaccination passports for entry, nearly three-quarters (74%) said they were ready to undergo a full vaccination program in order to travel abroad this summer.

Half of those polled said they would be ready to perform a five-day quarantine along with the required Covid-19 tests, while only 19% are willing to complete a forced 10-day hotel quarantine at the cost of 1 £ 750 – the current requirement for Red List countries.

Katie Crowe, communications director for battleface, said: “The good news is, as expected, there is still a huge appetite for international travel this summer.

“It is clear from our research that the vast majority are ready to be fully vaccinated to travel abroad.

“It is reassuring to hear today that the UK government is considering making summer vacation abroad a reality for fully vaccinated Britons.

“As always, we continue to give travelers peace of mind by providing travel insurance that doesn’t stop when circumstances change. “

This is because less than one in 100 travel insurance policies offer “comprehensive” coverage for coronavirus-related disruptions, according to Which?

Out of 263 travel insurance policies, the consumer group rated only two as offering full coverage against Covid-19.
