Can I Go On Holiday To Amber List Countries?
Travel is top of people’s minds as restrictions continue to ease. What do you want to know? Ask your Covid travel questions here.HuffPost UK reader Matthew asked: “Can I go on holiday to an amber destination? There seems to be conflicting information.”May 17 marks a big step in lockdown easing with people in England allowed to mix indoors once more and some types of travel back on the cards.The UK government has revealed its traffic light system for gradually easing travel restrictions, which will see destinations designated either green, amber or red depending on how many cases of Covid are circulating in a place and what the picture is looking like in terms of variants, among other things.If you’ve got a holiday booked to amber destinations like Spain and Greece in June, you’ll understandably be wondering whether it’s still ok to go. The advice so far has been a little confusing, as reader Matthew points out: “There seems to be conflicting information.”Submit a coronavirus travel question to HuffPost UK.So can you go on holiday to an amber country?The official line is that the public are being advised against travel to amber countries from May 17 for leisure purposes (aka holidays). However there may be essential or unavoidable reasons to travel and, in these contexts, people can do so.Currently it’s illegal to travel to these countries, however after May 17 it won’t be illegal – it will simply be advised against. So you can choose to travel to an amber destination for your holiday, but you will be going against government advice and it may be quite a lot of hassle. Which countries are on the amber list? There are dozens of countries on the amber travel list, which you can read in full here. Current destinations include:AustriaThe BahamasBarbadosBulgariaCambodiaCanadaChinaCroatiaCyprusEgyptFranceGermanyGreece and surrounding islandsItalyJamaicaMexicoSpain (including the Balearics and Canary Islands)United States  What measures will you need to take before and after travelling?This is where things start to get complicated. You will need to check the entry requirements of the country you are visiting before you travel.There are also significant testing procedures you’ll need to follow returning to England from an amber destination – the aim of this is to stop the spread of Covid on home soil if you do catch it while you’re abroad.Before coming back to England you must take a Covid-19 test (even if you’re vaccinated) that will act as proof you haven’t got Covid and are fit to travel.There are penalties for not doing this. If you don’t present proof that you tested negative, you may not be able to board your transport to England and if you arrive in England without proof, you could be fined £500.When you return to England, you’ll need to quarantine for 10 days either at home or the place you’re staying. Ahead of travelling, you should book and pay for a couple of travel tests which you’ll need to take on day two and eight of your return to England (so when you’re in quarantine).There is a get-out-of-quarantine early card you can play – but it’ll cost you extra. People may be able to end quarantine a few days earlier if they pay for a third Covid-19 test through the government’s ‘Test to Release’ scheme – this involves taking a test after day five of being back in England and, if the test is negative, you can come out of quarantine.You will still need to take tests on day two and eight of your return to England in addition to this third test. Anyone who breaks the quarantine rules can face penalties of up to £10,000.How does the amber list affect travel insurance?It’s always a worry that you’ll go abroad only to discover your travel insurance is void. The Association of British Insurers advises people to keep up to date and always follow overseas travel advice from the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), as travelling against FCDO advice is likely to invalidate your travel insurance.A spokesperson tells HuffPost UK: “When the restrictions on overseas travel are eased, it will be important for travellers to take out travel insurance, primarily to cover potentially very expensive overseas emergency medical treatment bills.“Travellers should always be aware of and follow government advice. If you travel against FCDO advice, then your travel policy will likely be invalidated. Make sure to read your policy so you are aware of the scope of cover, as policies bought after the pandemic was declared are unlikely to cover cancellation as a result of coronavirus as it is a known risk.”Can you reschedule a holiday on the amber list?It’s tricky. Some companies and airlines are offering more flexible bookings giving customers the option to postpone their travels. However in certain circumstances, this may not be possible.According to ABTA, the leading association of travel agents and tour operators, travel providers are under no obligation to offer a postponement if the FCDO is not advising against travel to your destination. Its advice is to speak to your travel provider to discuss what your options may be.Related...How The UK's Covid Traffic Light System Will WorkIs It Safe To Travel?

The Greens’ surge in Bristol shows Labour has to take climate change seriously | Matty Edwards
The two parties now hold joint control of the council – and have the chance to cooperate on the environment and social justiceJust hours after Labour’s Marvin Rees won the Bristol mayoralty for a second term, his party lost its council majority, with the Greens gaining an unexpected 12 council seats.After the Greens came second in the mayoral race, swings from Labour to Green, including in seemingly safe Labour areas, unseated long-serving councillors and cabinet members. Labour had hoped to keep overall control of the council, but the Greens caught them up as the joint-largest party with 24 councillors apiece. Continue reading...

After football’s revolt, where is the outcry over golf’s Saudi-led breakaway?
The Super Golf League’s plotters may hope that a less tribal sport will not rise up against their plans but it can and shouldPeople often ask about the difference in media approach between top-level footballers and golfers at an identical level. The widespread understanding would be that football players, bereft of educational qualifications, have a cynical attitude towards the press drilled into them within clubs and treat reporters accordingly. Golfers, often with at least an element of the US college system on their CV, comprehend the need to keep both tour and individual sponsors happy and therefore treat media duties as a core responsibility.In some respects that generalisation is correct. In many others it is grossly unfair. Footballers encounter a level of media criticism that is rarely, if ever, bestowed on golfers. Premier League players are subject to a scrutiny, personal and professional, that would be totally alien even to Rory McIlroy. Golfers making front pages is a rare thing indeed but that shouldn’t lead us to believe they are all as pure as the driven snow. Continue reading...
