UK Travel light system update

In the UK, on Monday many members of the travel industry were waiting patiently to hear more about the road map and return to travel, many destinations depend entirely on the tourism sector however they, like us; understand the balance between safe travel and restarting the industry. As Corporate travel providers, we are looking forward to the return of business trips and connecting suppliers and colleagues with experiences that are most definitely deserved after many months of continued restrictions and lockdowns across Europe.

We understand the balance between safe travel and restarting the industry

As expected, there wasn’t a huge amount of information from the UK prime minister, surrounding the specifics and we look forward to the continued updates. So that agencies, aviation and destinations alike can prepare accordingly for next booking peaks.

We quote “The Global Travel Taskforce is going to report later this week. We will be setting out before May 17 what we think is reasonable. We are not there yet.” – This is partly why we have been offering Staycation business trips for clients across Europe. It is seemingly the best bet (in our opinion) for the meantime if you are looking to take the team away in the early summer months.

However, the traffic-light system of green, amber and red was confirmed in a brief update from the Global travel taskforce., one of four ‘roadmap reviews’ set up by the government.

Travellers arriving from countries rated “green” will not be required to isolate although pre-departure and post-arrival tests will still be needed.

For people who have been in countries classed as “amber” arrivals will be required to isolate or enter quarantine.

And finally, for countries seen as Red, travel will be likely restricted unless due to compelling reasons, with which M.I.C.E travel does not fit within this list.

For the moment it is too early to say which countries will be on the green list. We will continue to update our valued clients as more information is released, which is why we are working with corporate travellers to book in advance for their 2022 incentive ski trips/conferences and all forms of business travel. Because everybody deserves something to look forward to 😊
