Plan your trip with Postcode Lookup and rooftop geocoordinates
As of 17th May 2021, the UK has entered the third stage of the lockdown roadmap, where legal restrictions on meeting others outdoors will be lifted and most businesses will be able to reopen. The government has also introduced a traffic light system for international travel which has different restrictions and rules depending on the country you want to travel to. Here's a list of the traffic light colours and restrictions:
One pre-departure test up to 72 hours before returning to the UK. One PCR test on or before day two of arrival in England/Wales. No quarantine unless a test is positive.
Countries with low cases and deaths, high vaccination rates and low numbers of ‘variants of concern’ have been given the green light.
One pre-departure test. Quarantine at home for 10 days on arrival in England/Wales. PCR test required on days two and eight of quarantine. Amber countries include Spain, Greece and France, and more than 100 other countries, with many in Europe.
One pre-departure test. On arrival, passengers must quarantine in a hotel for 10 days at a cost of £1,750 per person. PCR test required on days two and eight of quarantine (included in the quarantine hotel package). Passengers must book and agree to pay for a quarantine package before departing for the UK. There are 43 red list countries in total, with Maldives, Turkey and Nepal the most recently added. Brazil, South Africa and India are also on the list.
What about travel within the UK?
Currently, UK holiday accommodations can open, including hotels and B&Bs. This means you can travel nationally, and enjoy nearby trips and overnights stays. You may stay overnight in holiday accommodation in groups of up to 6, or larger groups if everyone present is from 2 households (including support bubbles) unless a legal exemption applies.
The UK has many locations suitable for short day trips and overnights stays. There are incredible sites to go on a walk by the coast, a forest trail or even relax indoors in hotels. All you need is a postcode to find the destination and you’re ready to add it to your GPS to plan your journey. You can also find out the geolocations and pinpoint the exact location.
We’ve picked 3 locations worth travelling to and listed hotels with their postcodes and geocoordinates.
