Huge changes to holidays TODAY as UK drops travel rules

TIME-consuming and costly travel rules have been ditched in a huge boost to Brits heading abroad.

As of 4am this morning, long-winded Passenger Locator Forms have been ditched, along with Covid tests for unvaccinated Brits.

The changes have come ahead of the Easter holidays and will save travellers time and money.

We've put together a full list of travel changes from today.

Passenger Locator Forms scrapped

The scrapping of PLFs is today's big change and is the only one that impacts vaccinated travellers.

The form had to be filled out by all arrivals into the UK, and asked for information about your travel details, address and vaccination status.

Although the form was simplified last month, it was still time-consuming and an added hassle for travellers, so holidaymakers will be relieved they no longer need to do them.

Pre-departure tests scrapped for unvaxxed

Pre-departure tests were scrapped for vaccinated Brits back in January, but were kept in place for unvaccinated travellers.

But as of today, no one needs to do them – regardless of vaccination status.

Day two tests scrapped for unvaxxed

Day two tests were also ditched for vaccinated Brits in February.

Up until today, unvaccinated Brits still had to take them – but this is no longer the case.

Ryanair is expected to drop mandatory masks in the coming weeks, as boss Michael O'Leary said they're likely to be scrapped by spring.

According to the Evening Standard, he said he hopes to see the end of masks on planes by "the end of April or May".

Additionally, Heathrow Airport has ditched mandatory face masks, giving the choice of wearing one or not to passengers.
