COVID-19: Holidaying abroad will mean a £5k fine under new coronavirus laws set to come in next week
The legislation covering COVID-19 restrictions includes a ban on leaving the UK without a reasonable excuse – with the hefty fine for those breaking the rule.
The new rules will also mean protests will be considered a permitted exception to the ban on mass gatherings.
MPs will vote on the laws – officially titled the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Steps) (England) Regulations 2021 – on Thursday.
If approved they would come into effect next Monday – 29 March.

Sue Smith of Oaks Barn Farm Quality Farm Stay Experience warns of the surge in demand, learning from last year when our farm gates re-opened to the public we saw a massive upturn in bookings and the same is true for this year with forward bookings being made well into 2022. Many of this year’s Weekend availability has already been filled and not surprisingly our Hot tub option and Pizza night are being booked up quickly.
The UK Hospitality sector was hit hard during last year, many businesses have been forced to close, lost valuable staff, or had to scale back their offering. Those businesses that have survived will be honoring many holidays rescheduled from last year, so demand for UK Holiday options could well outperform availability.
Popularity of self catering accommodation is also on the rise with many families being it as being the safest option over communal facilities and shared dining.
