Where CAN I go on holiday in England?




Oh my goodness, anyone else sick of trying to work out what the heck the tiers system means for life in general let alone going on holiday?


We live in the North West, but have parents in Leicester, North Wales and Malta...trying to see any of them is chaos, let alone trying to work out if our half-term break will actually go ahead (we assume it won't)


So, if you do have a break booked this half-term, or if you simply want your kids to have a sleepover at grandma's house, where do you stand and what CAN you do?


First of all, work out what tier system you live in, and what tier the place you want to visit is in - this article from the BBC contains a postcode finder that makes it a bit simpler if you're unsure:

THEN...can you travel between the tiers? What is and isn't allowed?


(THIS ADVICE IS FOR ENGLAND ONLY)


TIER ONE:

  • If you live in tier one. you can holiday anywhere in England that's also in Tier One

  • You can holiday with people from other households in private accommodation but only in groups of up to six (unless your own household or support bubble is bigger)

  • You can stay in a hotel or B&B with another household, but avoid sharing rooms with people outside your household

  • You should avoid visiting or staying overnight in a Tier Three area, except for work, education or caring responsibilities


TIER TWO:


  • You can go on holiday outside your local area as long as you don't share accommodation with people you don't live or bubble with, or socialise with them in any indoor setting

  • You should follow the rules for the area you are visiting

  • You should avoid visiting or staying overnight in a Tier Three area, except for work, education or caring responsibilities

  • You should aim to "reduce the number of journeys they make where possible" - according to the government


TIER THREE:


  • Tier three currently only includes the Liverpool City Region

  • You can travel to hotels and other guest accommodation within your own area, but only with people in your household or support bubble

  • You should try to avoid travelling outside the tier three area you are in other than for things like work, education or youth services, to meet caring responsibilities or if you are travelling through as part of a longer journey
