As we predicted in our recent webinar, the UK government announced that from Monday 19th July, it will no longer recommend against travel to amber list countries. Travellers from England, who have had both doses of the vaccine, will be able to travel to amber list countries without the need to quarantine on their return. In addition, the requirement for three PCR tests will be reduced to two. Children under the age of 18 will also be exempt from quarantine on their return to England.
This is a massive opportunity for the countries in the New Deal Europe area, all of whom are on the UK’s amber list of destinations.
New Deal Europe has two partnerships in operation at the moment to help you engage with and capture the UK market:
- Global Travel Week powered by Connections – the first live B2B travel trade event targeting senior buyers in the UK travel industry.
- OTT - Online Travel Training – travel training for the UK travel agency network.
Spaces are still available for Global Travel Week within the New Deal Europe pavillion. This is the first event since the start of the pandemic where tour operators and travel planners will have the opportunity to meet with suppliers. We will be highlighting all the elements which make the Greater Balkans the ideal choice for travellers in the post pandemic World, so contact us today to secure your place, and be amongst the first to speak face to face with senior decision makers.

New Deal Europe Virtual briefing between the travel media and the key tourism boards, development agencies and tourism associations of the Balkan region.
Pent up demand, booking surges, successful vaccination roll outs and high personal savings are all contributing to the UK and US markets being the primary focus for the tourism restart, according to speakers at New Deal Europe’s Destination and Media Summit this week.
Tourism boards in the Balkans region were invited to a ‘meet the media’ session to hear from senior travel journalists about consumer sentiment in the source markets and the preparedness of the destinations to receive visitors.
