Re: To go or not to go, a covid question!!

Same for me but I was planning to be in Portugal on the 14th of August. Just e-mailed AXA Intertours to see whether they will reimburse the costs if I cancel the flight.

Not only is everything much more expensive than before, but also unpredictable...

Where have you heard this? I assume only if not vaxed? Even fully vaxed people from U.K. donít have to quarantine here now!

Apparently Portugal has been added to Germany's list of "countries with a variant of concern":

https://www.auswaertiges-amt.de/en/e...lt/coronavirus

From that page (emphasis mine):
Quote:
Under the new Ordinance on Coronavirus Entry Regulations, persons entering Germany following a stay in a risk area, high incidence area or area of variant of concern in the last ten days must
  • proceed directly to their destination following entry and
  • self-isolate there for ten days (quarantine). After a stay in an area of variant ofconcern, travellers must self-isolate for 14 days rather than 10 days.
During this quarantine, travellers may not leave the house or flat or receive guests.

...For arrivals from areas of variant of concern no exceptions are possible.

But Germany is not Switzerland. In Switzerland if you are fully vaxed (donít know if OP is) then you donít have to quarantine from a variant of concern country.

The OP mentioned Germany so that's why I posted a link to the current German rules.

I've not seen anything yet that shows Switzerland plans to take a similar stance. But who knows. Rules and lists are changing all the time.

My best advice is if anyone plans to travel over the next several months, have good travel insurance.

On German news they said lots of tourists are returning early as from a certain date (which I forgot) all people coming from portugal have to quarantine! Even the vaccinated ones!

You don't? Then we could go to the UK and back again without quarantining at either?

Re: To go or not to go, a covid question!!

I would have thought that in the days of working from home, quarantine is not all that punishing . I am happy to be able to travel somewhat normally again without having to pull every trick in the book

The UK is classified as a high risk country, so even vaccinated people have to quarantine on the way back.
