RESEARCH by travel agent, Butter shows which current green list countries offer hassle free holiday's this summer.

This Thursday the UK Government is expected to announce any changes to its current travel list. In the meantime, here are the best hassle free destinations on the Governments green list. 

The research shows that, Australia, Brunei, Faroe islands, Gibraltar, Iceland, Singapore and St Helena are all original members on the green list. Offering the best chance of a hassle free summer without the stress of being places on the amber list while you're away. 

Other green list destinations like, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Cayman islands, Croata Taiwan are all at risk of being moved onto the amber list. Which means you should not travel to these destinations and will have to take a covid test upon arrival back into the UK. 

Since May 2021, when the traffic light system was introduced countries have been constantly moving between the green and amber list, even sometimes falling into red causing chaos for holiday makers.

Overall the original greenlist countries have experienced a rise of 142%.This is due to the fact these countries have remained safe on the green list.

Seven nights in Sydney, Australia currently costs an average of £3,291 having risen by 69% since May, a break in St Helena costs £1,368, which is up by 6%. And a seven night trip to Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of Brunei, will cost £1,724 having increased by 142% since May.

The most affordable destination on the green list is Gibraltar, where a seven night stay would cost an average of £589. This is up from £378 due to a 58% increase since added to the greenlist.

But, not all of the green list has seen a increase in their prices. A seven night stay in Singapore currently costs an average of £727 after experiencing a 8% decrease in May. 

Co-founder and CEO of Butter, said: "Foreign travel has become incredibly complicated in the wake of Covid-19, but as more and more nations start to manage and lower their infection rates, we can finally start planning a much needed summer holiday."
