This will come as great news to the 400,000 Britons who are lucky enough to have second a homes in Spain, as well as to people who are just in need of a holiday.

However, the quarantine is still in place for when we return, although the UK's quarantine restrictions will be reviewed on 29th June so we are praying that they too will be lifted.

We also have another hurdle, the UK Foreign Office is still warning against all but essential international travel, but again we are keeping our fingers crossed for this to be lifted soon.

The UK government are now planning to relax the travel quarantine rules for some countries from the start of July, there may be 'travel corridors' (air bridges) made with other countries so we don't have to quarantine when we go on holiday nor when we come back! Some countries included could be Portugal, France, Italy, Greece and Spain.

Spain's foreign affairs minister Arancha González Laya said UK visitors will go through a "triple check" when they arrive in Spain. We will be asked where we are from when we arrive and to register so they have a contact point to trace us if needed and we will also need to take a temperature test.

"We want to make sure that we welcome visitors, but we want to do this in safety and security for them, as well as for the Spaniards," she said. "We do hope that [the British authorities] will be sensitive to the 250,000 Spaniards that are also living in the UK and would very much like to enter the UK without quarantine," she said. But she added: "We also respect that countries look at entry or exit restrictions on the basis of their own data."
