The 11 quarantine-free holiday destinations you can still visit

MORE countries have opened to Brits recently, with the Canary Islands the latest to be removed from the quarantine list.

There are now 11 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.

Thankfully, there are still a number of destinations you can travel to without having to spend two weeks in quarantine.

All of the Greek islands have been removed from the quarantine list, including Mykonos last week, along with the Maldives and the Canary Islands in Spain.

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.
