If the coronavirus chaos in the UK is the last straw in your broken relationship with your home country, massive discounts on European summer holidays make for affordable checking out of European expat hubs.

If you’ve just about given up on the UK as your country of residence, now’s the time to visit Spain. Tourists and potential expats can now travel to any one of Spain’s favourite destinations, and don’t need to self-isolate or get tested on arrival. The only problem is that, as the UK government is backing off from arranging a reciprocal air bridge scheme, you’ll have to suffer two weeks’ quarantine once you get home.

The loosening up of Spain’s covid-19 regulations is good news for the literally thousands of Brits with second homes all along Spain’s Mediterranean coastline, with even more would-be travellers desperate to pay a visit to relatives and friends who’ve already repatriated. Whilst the Spanish government isn’t overjoyed about the lack of an air bridge arrangement, its battered tourism sector is more than happy that even small numbers of British tourists may be heading to the Costas and the Balearics.

For would-be expats for whom the UK’s mishandling of the pandemic is the last straw, now’s the time to take an objective look at what Spain has to offer by taking advantage of heavy discounting on holiday breaks. A number of package tour operators have slashed prices by 50 per cent, and UK airports are now proposing that testing holidaymakers on their return could well allow arrivals to avoid having to quarantine for two weeks on their return to the UK. The special price deals are also available on July and August breaks in Portugal and Croatia as well as Spain - giving would-be emigrants a chance to investigate their country or countries of choice.
