It's official; UK breaks are back! The UK government announced a roadmap out of lockdown, which highlighted a series of dates expected to coincide with the easing of restrictions for various activities, including holidays.
But what do the recent announcements mean for you? We've rounded up the key points to be aware of when it comes to staycations.
People in England can now take domestic holidays in self-contained accommodation with members of the same household or support bubble. You can stay overnight in a campsite, caravan, boat, second home or other self-contained accommodation. You do not need a reasonable excuse to leave England to travel to other parts of the UK, Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland.
The stay local rule within Wales was lifted on the 27th of March, coinciding with the start of the Welsh School Holidays. Self-contained accommodation reopened on the 27th of March. The border between Wales and England has reopened, and people are allowed to travel in both directions.
Under current regulations, non-essential travel between Scotland and the rest of the UK remains restricted. People are allowed to travel across to Scotland from Friday the 16th April as long as they don't stay overnight. Restrictions on travel from Scotland are expected to be lifted on the 26th of April.
Currently, anyone arriving into Northern Ireland has to self-isolate for ten days upon arrival.
