Guernsey makes travel easier

By | Category: Travel destinations

July 1st was the day that Guernsey allowed Britons who had received two jabs to to travel to the island without having to self-isolate or undergo testing of any sort.

The new rules not only apply to Britons but to all those travelling from the Common travel Area so people from the Isle of Man, the other Channels Islands and the Republic of Ireland are included as well.

But to avoid restrictions, you must have had your last jab two weeks before you reach the island. If you aren’t then you will still need to self-isolate and you must arrange transport from the airport/port to where you are spending self-isolation in advance of landing on the island.

Those travelling will have to show proof of the double vaccination.

Everyone travelling to Guernsey must register on the Travel Tracker website where details are kept on vaccinations, tests and your location. This should ideally be done a couple of days before you arrive on the island.

The rules on masks might seem a little confusing as you only need wear them in the arrivals area at either the airport or the port. You won’t need to wear them once you leave arrivals and go into the rest of the airport but some people will choose to do so.

Airlines have already geared up to take more people to and from the island. British Airways have a new service to and from Edinburgh whilst Aurigny will operate two flights a day on Friday and Saturday to and from Manchester. Services from Gatwick and Southampton have re-started and now for the first time since the pandemic shut travel down there is a direct service from Southampton to Alderney.  The Exeter0Alderney service begins from 16 July
