“We understand there is speculation for the Maldives and Turkey to be finally removed from the red list and reinstated as a holiday option for Brits. This would be a welcome sigh of relief, with both incredibly popular destinations offering the perfect option for some late summer sun.”
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Paul Melinis, Managing Director of river cruise and touring specialist APT said: “Looking at case rates over the last week, it looks likely that some of the most popular Mediterranean holiday destinations for Brits, such as Portugal, Greece, Spain and Italy, will remain on the amber list.
“Unless Shapps makes a move to end the current traffic light system, in these destinations as well as European cities, which we hope he will.”
The traffic light system has meant many tourists have had to pay for expensive PCR tests despite being double jabbed.
