“Restoring people’s confidence in travel is key to rebuilding our economy and levelling up this country. With less restrictions and more people travelling, we can all continue to move safely forward together along our pathway to recovery.”
Simon Cooper, CEO of On the Beach, told Express.co.uk: “We welcome any news that simplifies international travel, and this latest announcement – along with recent easing of restrictions – brings travel closer to pre-Covid conditions than it has been in a long time.
“We hope that this will inject a healthy dose of confidence into travel again and represent a one-way exit from restrictions as people start to look forward to their well-deserved and much anticipated holidays next year.”
Double-vaccinated passengers travelling to Portugal will no longer need to take a Covid test on arrival in the country, according to the UK Government website.
