Turkey exits red list & British tourists go frenzy booking tickets

Published on : Monday, September 20, 2021

One of their favorite holiday spots, Turkey, many British residents are expected to head back to this country in the Middle East, after a shake-up of foreign travel rules flashing booking frenzy.


On Friday, Britain has made rules simple for international travel in a move to boost the tourism industry including scrapping the need for fully vaccinated passengers to take expensive COVID-19 tests on arrival from low-risk countries.


Countries will simply be positioned low or high risk, instead of red, amber and green, under the new proposals. Turkey, Pakistan and the Maldives, will be removed from the high-risk red band.


The decision means people who are fully vaccinated and returning from Turkey will no more be required to get into hotel quarantine. From Wednesday, these changes will come into effect.


By now, this news has caused a big surge in holiday bookings, giving a relief to the holidaymakers and travel firms.
In bookings, holiday company TUI said that it has witnessed an “uptick” for Turkey, which has spent all summer in the red travel category.


In May, Turkey was added to the high-risk category and to the U.K. travelers, it has been mainly off-limits since then, bringing the nation’s vibrant tourism industry to a standstill and the holiday plans of millions of potential visitors.
