I can see your point and agree with the timings however lots of people will be travelling to France on an Amber status when France give them the green light. I personally will be doing the calculations for July as i am fortunate to get lots of paid holiday which reduces the burden and i can clear the Mrs list of homely duties whilst isolating. The extra cost of 2 x PCR tests and an extra week's holiday will be a mere inconvenience to some people. The cost of the test is coming down daily and in a few months you'll be able to get them for less than 100 the pair which for some people will be a price worth paying. I say 2 as there has been a suggestion on here from Dave that the French test is often free and you can test again 5 days in for early release once home. If, as most do, you arrive home Saturday afternoon you can send your test off Thursday afternoon and should receive it back before work Monday. Even 3 tests will be value for some.
The interesting part for me and the deal breaker will be whether venues in France start to deny a re booking as you can physically get there, you just don't want to. This has been the case in previous lockdowns when we were required to quarantine on return for 10 days. Would like to here from lake owners on this. Jim Everiss from Moulin Du Mee is generally level headed and on this thread.

Yes.

Its just too much hassle, time and cost.

Inevitable that some will just ignore the rules and go anyway.

But i was astounded that there were people genuinely believing that a French fishing trip was a practical proposition in say June!

And then those who suggested money would be the driver for unrestricted access to Europe!


Until the French and rest of Europe get to somewhere near where we are in terms of vaccination and infection rates they will stay amber.

Given France has about the same population as UK, if they go at the same pace we did, which was astoundingly quickly, which is unlikely (this is France!) they could possibly get there by about August at the earliest from where they are now.

Its more likely to be late September /October or if they drag things out end of the year.

The biggest problem I see is people trying to hide their boilies away

What an absolute nightmare !
The way I understand it . To go to France fishing before June 9th you have to -
Have a PCR test before you leave the U.K. .
Download and fill in the French forms saying that you not been around anyone with COVID and giving permission to be tested at random .
Give the address where you are going to self isolate for 7 days ( the lake ! )
On the 7th day have a French PCR test ( if negative you can leave the lake )
This PCR test you can then use to get back into the U.K.
Log on and Fill in the U.K. personal locator form .
Once back in the U.K. you must qaurantine for 10 days
You must take a PCR test on Day 2
You can take another PCR test on day 5 and if negative can leave quarantine ( which is day 7 realistically by the time you get the results ) .

Have I missed anything 😭😭😭

Following todays announcement by the Govt, it must be a nightmare for lake operators in France as to know what to do about their customers who are booked on holidays from 17 May. Personally I think there should not have been a traffic light system, it should be red or green, you can go or not go!

Thanks for that, reviews look a bit rubbish but as long as you have the tracking number you'll be fine. I'd probably use someone else for the 'fit to travel' test - I'd rather pay a few more pound for the service to ensure there was no drama before departing. Thanks again.

I don't think June 9th date matters much. I'm going May 22nd (assuming amber not red). The lake I am going to have advised that you can isolate at your lake. It will only be an issue for you if you combine travel away from the lake to local restaurants etc. Lake owner also advised there appears to be little enforcement - I believe quarantine is voluntary. So, I would get planning on the assumption you can go. Next stage for me is to find some reasonable costs for PCR testing. Good luck.

Won't really make much difference what the former alias using get rich quick salesman says this evening as France aren't changing anything in regards to their travel restrictions till June 9.
