If you are taken ill anywhere the local doctors, nurses, ambulance staff and hospitals will need to know you vaccinations status. If possible have contact details of your home doctor in case your medical history is needed. Also pack your European Health Insurance Card.

- Before travel booking check UK government websites for advice like this.
- Face Coverings on Public Transport
Gov.uk Step 4 opened up England on 19th July 2021 to removing legal restrictions within England. Thus many instructions to wear face masks were removed by parliament. However consider using a face covering on public transport and enclosed inside spaces.

- Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland
- If you are travelling from Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland, although all in UK, you may have to cross-check with those websites as well as you cross the borders into England. This is because each of these countries had their devolved parliaments issuing different rules at different times which became evident during UK wide Television Broadcasts from March 2020. So check before travel from them or through them.
- Isle of Man and Channel Islands
If you are travelling from these “British Crown Dependencies” they have their own independent parliaments issuing rules. So check before travel from them or through them.
