NOW that the government has relaxed travel rules for Brits returning to the UK, there is a surge of interest in foreign holidays again.
But which countries will allow holidaymakers without any costly Covid restrictions?
If you visit a country that doesn’t require entry tests, you can do a whole trip without needing a single Covid test.
