France will relax its restrictions for UK travellers from Friday, the country’s government has announced. Fully vaccinated people will no longer need a compelling reason to enter France and will not have to self-isolate when they arrive. But a negative Covid test, taken 24 hours before leaving the UK, will still be required for all those arriving. Travel companies welcomed the news – with Jet2 reporting a “sharp” spike in flight bookings to ski destinations. People who are not vaccinated will still need a compelling reason to enter France, and must isolate for 10 days upon arrival.
