Travelling to and from the UK just got a whole lot easier

travelling to and from the uk

You may have heard about the UK’s traffic light system that was introduced earlier this year. Well, take what you know, and forget about it, because that’s now been scrapped. Instead, the the government has made travelling to and from the UK a whole lot easier. Which is great news if you’re planning to head over on a UK Pub Co. program. 

When entering the UK, most countries are now on the green list, and if you’re fully vaccinated, you won’t need to worry about isolating at all. All you need to do is take a PCR test on day 2 after you arrive in the UK. If you haven’t been fully vaccinated, you will just need to arrange home isolation for ten days. 

There are however some countries on the red list, where hotel quarantine is required, you can check them out online here.

Thankfully, there’s only one European country on the list, and that’s Montenegro. So if you’re planning on having some epic European adventures in Italy, France or even Germany and Spain, you can! 

Many of our participants tag on a EuroTrip either before, after or during their UK Pub Co. working holiday. A few of our favourite destinations include:


The best part about visiting Italy is that every city is so unique. Rome, Milan, Venice, Florence, Sorrento, Positano; these iconic destinations each have their own charm and quirks. If it’s culture, or beaches, nightlife or even snow you’re looking for, Italy will have it. 


There’s so much more to Amsterdam than the coffee shops and red light district. Museums, music and culture fills every corner. It’s a modern and thriving city, with great nightlife. As there’s so much to see we recommend spending a few days at least. 


You’ll want to make sure your camera (or phone) is fully charged when in Iceland, as everything is photo worthy. Rainbows, glaciers, black sand beaches, geysers and lagoons, there’s just so much to see. 

Sailing in Croatia 

Always one of the most popular trips with Aussie and Kiwi travellers – sailing is definitely the best way to see Croatia. Your sailing friends will become your family as you wake up each day in a new place.

Contiki Trips

Our mates at Contiki offer amazing European holiday packages. You’ll also travel with a great bunch of like minded people so you can meet new friends on your adventures.
