Information on travel restrictions due to coronavirus within the UK, updated 6 January 2021

The below information applies to residents of the UK looking to book a self-catering holiday in the UK or Northern Ireland.

Can I now book a holiday in the UK?

As of January 2021, the UK is now in national lockdown again (including England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland).

With ‘Stay at home’ orders in place it is not possible to take a self-catering holiday in the UK currently. The government has said that the national lockdown will be reviewed again in mid February 2021.

Although things are still uncertain with the coronavirus pandemic, the UK government has announced a planned vaccination programme for 2021.  Although you cannot book and take a cottage break currently, many holiday home owners and agencies will now be accepting bookings for later on in the year (particularly for the peak summer period when demand is usually high).  As always its strongly recommended that you take out appropriate holiday insurance.
