Mateys, at the beginning of the month we brought to you a list of air-corridor countries, many countries that you can travel to from the UK and not have to endure the 14 day quarantine when you return back home after your holidays, however many people (including us) were disappointed to see Portugal was not on the list!
Well that might be about to change with the UK Government reportedly set to announce that they are lifting restrictions on enforcing a quarantine when returning for the popular holiday destination.
From as soon as Monday, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps is set to update the list of Covid-safe travel air-corridors - could there be other holiday destinations included too we wonder!

From June the 8th, the UK government introduced a 2-week compulsory quarantine on all arrivals into the UK, before announcing a large list of countries that were exempt and we could travel freely(ish).
Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland followed suit, although Spain was excluded from Scotland list - this is also on the cards for a change, but who knows now cases in Spain have recently been on the rise.
