And at Aqvatika in italy you must wear a mask in the office, can only use the freezer to freeze water and the fridge is out of use to minimise covid.

In france and italy you are expected to wear face covering in all public enclosed spaces. We did burger king on our way thru france and you must wear mask, sanitise hands and wear gloves to use the cashless ordering system. Tbf, it was well set up.

The message Brittany Ferries sent me for my trip said they are open but food is a reduced menu and in all communal areas you need to be masked up.

Think the shops will have reduced hours, but not a massive problem.

Pretty sure that EHIC cards are still valid up until end of the year at least

While that wouldnít cover repatriation it does give you access to state provided healthcare services.

Doesn't the FCO still advise against all but essential travel (worldwide) ??

https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/france. (Updated 18/06 & current advice as of 21/06)

Although this is likely to change imminently & by July it will probably be a free for all; its a bit concerning that people are obviously going over there Ignoring restrictions/guidance for a bit of fishing.........

Think thatís a pretty good indication that air/ ferry bridges will be in by then , or very shortly after . Iím assuming that Brittany Ferries would not be starting on that date without a serious nod from the Goverment !
Hope so ! Iím off to Dijon on Friday and I really donít want the agro and crap of filling in forms etc etc

Just received an email from Brittany Ferries saying they are running passenger services from the 29th of June.
Lots of restrictions on the ferry but my crossing is 11 hour at night so I have no issues with whatever the restrictions will be.
Just relieved to be getting out.

Surely you just drive to Dover?

Adds about 500 miles to the journey!

Guys: I said that the Tunnel was no problem, nor are there problems using short crossing ferries. Down west the long crossing ferries (Brittany Ferries to be precise) are not taking passengers and their cars at the moment, this to be reviewed on 28th June.

Many lakes are now welcoming guests...getting there is the main problem but those within easy reach of the Tunnel and the short channel crossings will have no problem. For we mugs sat down here at the toe end of Cornwall, we have no ferries until the review on 28th June.

Be aware, those travelling back to the UK at present are required to complete a declaration form stating you'll quarantine for 14 days unless you are a key worker.

They said they'll be doing spot checks, with a fine of £1000 imposed. I very much doubt this will be Policed though.

If you don't complete it prior to travel, you'll have to stand there like a lemon for 15 minutes at the Border answering questions.

If you have completed it, take a screenshot of the completed form, and you'll be on your way home within minutes.

Anyone worried about this Uk qaurantine should fiirstly check out the Uk gov website for the list of excemptions . The list is long ! And some will find something which applies . In many cases it is literally producing a letter on company or official paper .
Itís no coincidence that Macron is due over to the Uk shortly . The quarantine is the first thing probably on his agenda ! France needs uk tourists and with the Uk gov being sued by all the big airlines I canít see how it can stay in place for long .. got to remember politicians and politics donít change !!

Have you told the insurer it's for non esential holiday travel. Freight journeys are classed as essential so the hire of a van for a euro journey is in itself not an issue.

Self isolation is voluntary in France and you can transit through France without isolation. Borders never closed To the UK but travel internally was restricted. Restriction removed and folk are already doing trips. The problem is the uk side upon return, 2 weeks self isolation (mandatory) unless you can demonstrate you are an exception. Hopefully this will be reviewed at the end of June

President Macron has announced tonight that the entire French border will open on 1st July for planes, trains and ferries.
This is what we anticipated so clients coming with us from 4th July will be free to travel to us.
On the 14 day quarantine on arrival back in the UK the British Government have reassured 500 UK businesses in the hospitality industry that this will end on 29th June. Chancellor Sunak has also said today this will be amended shortly.
So it looks like everyone is back in business from 1st July!
