The quarantine rule – which requires arrivals to be quarantined until they receive their test results on the second day – has also been scrapped.

And as of today, the rules for day two will change – and families will be able to save hundreds of passes.

From 4am Britons will be able to do a lateral flow test instead of a PCR test, with the former having to be cheaper.

While NHS side-flow tests cannot be used for travel, they cost around £22 from private health firms – while PCR is at least £60 higher.

The government website states: “If you are eligible to be fully immunized to travel to the UK and you are arriving in the UK after 4am, Sunday 9 January, you can choose to have a flow test party instead of a PCR test after you arrive in the UK.

“If you are eligible to be fully vaccinated for travel to the UK and you are arriving in the UK after 4am, Sunday 9 January, you may choose to have a lateral flow test instead of a PCR test after you come to England.”

However, while travelers do not need to be quarantined pending results, they will have to take a PCR test if the results are positive.

The website continues: “If you do a lateral flow test and it comes back positive, you will need to self-isolate and do a free PCR test.”

Free PCR tests can be used through the NHS.

These new rules do not apply to any unvaccinated arrivals.

This is also different from other regulations in place in the UK from 11 January, which no longer mandate PCR testing for anyone who tests positive for lateral flow in the UK. Brother.

Instead, people in the UK can self-isolation for a week as long as they are negative on Friday and Saturday.

Travel rules also still apply to countries abroad – destinations like Spain and Cyprus require a Covid test on arrival even if fully vaccinated.

And some are still banning the British – France, Morocco and Hong Kong All are currently enforcing a travel ban on UK tourists and flights.
