Although the UK has restricted travel abroad from 5 November to 2 December 2020 with the exception of urgent purposes, work or education, this deal might still be attractive for some people.

There is widespread availability in the months of November and early December, as well as in the winter months of 2021 when British government restrictions will hopefully be lifted.

Corona restrictions

Turkey is currently one of the few countries on the continent which is fully open for travel. There are no negative PCR test needed to fly and self-isolation is not required upon arrival.

However, things can always change so be sure to check the FCO travel advice for Turkey before departure.
