NEARLY all countries are off limits to Brits now due to closed borders and travel restrictions, as well as mandatory 14-day quarantine restrictions.
There are now just 12 countries left which have no quarantine rules either on arrival or back in the UK for British travellers.
Since July, Spain, France, parts of Portugal and Greece, Croatia, Malta and the Netherlands have all been added to the quarantine list, among others.
This means being forced to self-isolate for two weeks when back in the UK.
Thankfully, there are still a number of destinations you can travel to without having to spend two weeks in quarantine.
Travel restrictions can change at the last minute, it is worth nothing, with some destinations possibly introducing new measures for British arrivals at short notice.
Some also require tests before flying or on arrival, but these will not include a self-isolation period if testing negative.
