THE COVID LEAGUE

Holiday destinations such as the US, Italy, Germany and Poland are against British tourists returning, it emerged today as the Government considers moving countries with low coronavirus case rates to the travel 'green list'.

 Travel experts have suggested the four countries could be among a host of popular 'amber list' locations - also including Malta, Croatia, Finland and the Balearic Islands - that could be opened up for quarantine-free travel. Others that could be added include Grenada, Barbados and Jamaica along with Canada, Morocco and Croatia, according to travel consultancy the PC Agency which based its research on case rates per 100,000 people.

 It comes as fully vaccinated Britons could enjoy quarantine-free holidays from as early as July 19 as ministers scramble to save the summer season - but will still face tough entry restrictions in many countries.

 Boris Johnson is under huge pressure from senior ministers to sign off a 'big bang' reopening on so-called 'Freedom Day' with travel curbs eased at the same time as restrictions are lifted at home. Formal advice against trips to 'amber list' countries would be dropped for those who have been double-jabbed under the plans - opening up summer breaks in Spain, France , Italy , Greece and the United States. Children would also be able to avoid quarantine if travelling with their parents. Meanwhile, Malta and Spain's Balearic Islands are on track to be added to the 'green list' tomorrow, offering more options for people desperate for some sunshine.
