In Abu Dhabi, Beach Holidays, Cambodia, Caribbean, City Breaks, Coronavirus, Dubai, Greece, Laos, South America

Following news that the Pfizer vaccine is likely to be the first success on the market shortly, hot on the heels was an announcement from the Transport Secretary on new Travel Corridors being available from this weekend, despite their currently being enhanced restrictions on travel from England.

The list of eight countries was revealed on Thursday evening, during the usual ‘Twitter’ update from Shapps, with a number of high profile and popular destinations for the winter. The most notable of these being the United Arab Emirates, which means winter sun holidays to the Middle East should still be possible and great news for anyone looking to get away at Christmas or New Year. The United Arab Emirates covers Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ajman, and Ras Al Khaimah. Also in the Middle East, nearby states of Qatar and Bahrain are also included.

Also on the list are the Asian countries of Cambodia and Laos, both of which are harder to get to given the reduction in the number of flights to the Far East with borders restrictions in force. The Turks & Caicos in the Caribbean has also been reintroduced, along with Chile.

Closer to home Iceland has returned, whist mainland Greece has been removed – although the islands of Corfu, Crete, Rhodes, Zante, and Kos remain, not that they are easy to get to given we are now outside of the tourist season.
