Families should check the entry requirements before travelling, although most countries are now accepting fully vaccinated Brits who have proof of both jabs through the NHS app.
However, some countries have strict rules for kids – for Cyprus, children over 12 must be vaccinated or have a negative Covid test before arrival and on arrival, while Malta has banned all visitors over 12 who are not vaxxed.
Brits no longer need a negative Covid test when returning to the UK either, and just need to take a lateral flow test on day two.
