We were optimistic a few weeks back when travel to Europe re-opened, to find restrictions re-imposed earlier last week.
Many of us may decide to continue with our holiday plans, so the best advice at the moment is to know your rights and to do your best to stay safe.
Holidaymakers returning from Spain including the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands must self-isolate for 14 days on their return to the UK. Whilst the situation is being monitored, there is speculation of extending to other European countries soon.
Once in Spain, or in any European country where restrictions come into force, follow the advice from local authorities on how to protect yourself and others. Don’t forget your mask in shops, shopping areas, and when entering restaurants.
When returning to the UK, you need to self-isolate for the first 14 days or risk being fined.
It is unclear what rights workers have if they have to quarantine and they are not able to work. The government is urging employers to be flexible.
However you decide to manage your holiday plans during these times, spending abroad will not be a worry with your Currensea card. Our simple and cost-effective currency card will be there for you, without the hassles of topping up or hidden fees.
