Jet2 adds flights and holiday package deals to Portugal – with prices from £35

Travel advice is constantly changing around the coronavirus pandemic.

But from tomorrow (Saturday) at 4am, Portugal will be taken off the quarantine list.

This means anyone travelling back home from the country will not be required to self-isolate for two weeks.

It is great news for Brits who are struggling to book any holidays because of the quarantine restrictions.

And since the FCO announced these changes to its non-essential travel, Jet2 has resumed its flights to the Portuguese region.

The low-budget airline will be re-launching its Algarve holiday packages.

A holiday package deal for two adults starts at just £534pp for three nights from August 27.

The price is based on a self-catering stay at Mirachoro II hotel in Algarve.

Of course there are other offers on the official website and for September as well.

Also the airline is once again offering flights to Faro with last minute cheap flights.

Just by looking at the prices now, a flight from most UK airports to the Portuguese region will cost around £35.

For the single ticket, Brits have a host of airports to choose from, including Birmingham, Liverpool, London and Manchester.

Claudia Miguel, UK Director, Turismo de Portugal, said: "As a valued partner, we are delighted that and Jet2holidays is recommencing flights and holidays to Faro in addition to Madeira.

"We have consistently maintained our unwavering confidence in the safety of Portugal, and we are delighted to have arrived at a decision which we feel far better reflects the reality of the situation in Portugal."

It comes after the Foreign & Commonwealth Office changed its travel advice for Portugal.

From 4am tomorrow, the country will be added to the list of countries where self-isolation on return to the UK is not required.

On the website, it said Portugal, including Madeira, Porto Santo and the Azores is exempt from advice against non-essential travel.

It added: "This is based on the current assessment of Covid-19 risks."

However, it's worth noting that the advice is constantly being reviewed so it's likely rules could change.

The FCO has said that if travelling to those parts of Portugal, you must take a test before you travel or on arrival.
