Can I go on holiday?
At the moment the FCO advises Brits against all but essential foreign travel, which means that your travel insurance will not be valid if you choose to go on holiday.
This advice may change, so you should keep an eye on the latest updates.
If you want to book a holiday, you should check the cancellation policy so you know your options if you have to cancel.
