Iceland is one of the few green list destinations

Viva Tristan da Cunha, said nobody, when the government revealed its very brief “green list” of quarantine-free nations.

While this South Atlantic island, along with St Helena, the Falklands and South Georgia, made the lowest-risk category, no one is seriously planning a midwinter trip to the deep south.

Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Brunei, meanwhile, are closed to UK travellers, and the Faroes are accessible only via Copenhagen – triggering amber status.

Only four nations are feasible destinations among the 12 countries and territories announced by the transport secretary, Grant Shapps: Portugal, Iceland, Israel and Gibraltar.

From passengers’ rights to quarantine rules, flexible bookings to bagging a bargain, I’ll be on hand to answer your travel questions live on Thursday 13 May.
