Ryanair has launched a huge flash sale for July with flights from £5 each way – and that includes Ibiza, Majorca and Malta, all of which are currently on the UK’s green list.
The budget airline is currently offering the discounted fares for travel until July 31, so it’s ideal for those who are looking for a last-minute getaway.
When we took a look, there were heaps of UK airports to choose from for the £5 flight offers.
For example, for Ibiza there are £5 fares from London Stansted, Liverpool, Manchester, East Midlands, Glasgow Prestwick, Birmingham, Bristol and Leeds Bradford.
For flights to Majorca , there were £5 deals from London Southend, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, East Midlands, Glasgow Prestwick, Leeds Bradford, Liverpool and Newcastle.
As for Malta ? The £5 flights are available for departures from London Stansted and Leeds Bradford.
Those who want to book the deals will need to be quick, as the sale ends at midnight today (July 1). You can find the deals on the Ryanair website here.
The airline currently has a ‘zero change fees’ policy meaning that if you want to change your flights, you can do so free of charge. You’ll need to do this at least seven days pre-departure – you can find out more here.
The Balearic Islands and Malta are some of the latest additions to the UK’s green list this week, meaning that any Brits who visit these destinations won’t need to self-isolate or quarantine once back in the UK, although you will still need to take a pre-departure test and a PCR test on day two.
Although the green list is expanding, there are still only a limited number of holiday options for Brits due to some countries on the list not yet opening to tourists, or requiring quarantine.
The Balearics and Malta are among those which don’t require quarantine either side, but there are entry requirements in place for UK travellers wanting to visit the destinations.
For example, the Balearics are affected by Spain’s new entry rules which come into force on July 2, meaning that if you’re not fully vaccinated against Covid, you’ll need to show proof of a negative PCR test result.
Malta meanwhile has said it currently will only be open to fully vaccinated Brits, although it won’t accept the NHS app as proof of vaccination. The rules apply to anyone aged 12 or over. Children aged 5-11 won’t need to be jabbed, but will still be required to have a negative PCR test result.
In recent weeks, a number of countries have tightened up their entry rules for Brits amidst concerns surrounding the Delta variant of coronavirus.
Portugal recently introduced new rules which include a 14-day quarantine for unvaccinated Brits, France now requires UK travellers to prove they have an essential reason for travelling, and Italy has introduced a five-day self-isolation requirement for Brits.
Still, that doesn’t mean that those who aren’t double jabbed won’t be able to go on holiday. Some countries are still welcoming unvaccinated Brits for holidays, usually alongside PCR testing requirements to visit.
