Holidays still on with Greece, Spain & France set to stay on amber travel list

BRITS planning a last-minute holiday can breathe a sigh of relief. Greece, Spain and France are all set to remain on the amber travel list.

Ministers are not expected to make any big changes when they review the Covid-19 traffic light system on Thursday.

There were fears the Costas could have been slammed on to the hotel quarantine lists.

But cases across the continent are dropping as their vaccine rates catch up with Britain.

Greece and France will also avoid going red — with double-jabbed Brits and their families able to return from their hols without having to isolate.

But some Caribbean islands — such as Jamaica and St Lucia — are at risk of being put into the no-go category along with Morocco, say travel analysts.
Paul Charles, boss of The PC Agency, said: “Significant changes could see some Caribbean islands turning red.

“Saudi Arabia could turn green as well as Israel while Croatia could go amber from the green watch-list.”

Former BA analyst Robert Boyle also insisted that Spain and France would remain on the amber list.

He said: “The percentage of people returning from Spain who tested positive from July 22 to August 11 was 1.7 per cent.

“This is down from 3.1 per cent in prior three weeks.

“Both Beta and Gamma variants of Covid are in full retreat in France in the face of Delta.”
