Recent changes to testing and self-isolation isolation rules for UK arrivals has sparked a boost in bookings for holidays abroad.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps announced last month that fully vaccinated arrivals in England will no longer have to take a COVID-19 test, while the requirement for those not in that category to self-isolate will be dropped.
Mr Shapps hailed the changes as a return to the “good old days” of international travel, but warned booster doses are likely to become a requirement of foreign trips in the future.
So, we ask the people of Liverpool: is it time to book that holiday abroad?
‘I've booked a big cruise in May’
George from Litherland says: "I've booked a big cruise in May, and I'm going. I'm off to Hawaii."
‘We've had holidays booked that have been cancelled’
Linda says: "We've had holidays booked that have been cancelled for those years, and I get the feeling that those holiday companies wouldn't allow you to cancel them anymore."
‘We're not going to book anything’
Lana says: "We're trying to live with it but we're not going to book anything. We normally go on a cruise."
