UK travellers could be free to go on abroad from July 4 under plans being drawn up by Boris Johnson.
The Prime Minister is expected to give the green light to deals that have been put in place to allow for quarantine-free travel, reports the Daily Mail.
Major airlines and tour operators are set to be briefed on the plans tomorrow.
It would mean Brits could go abroad without having to spend 14 days in quarantine when they return.
Foreign tourists would also be able to go on holiday to the UK without having to self-isolate on arrival.
Reports are that ministers are drawing up plans for travel between the UK and Portugal, France, Spain, Italy, Greece and Turkey.
Currently, the Foreign Office advises against all but essential travel.
But the ban on overseas travel is expected to be relaxed imminently for the first time since lockdown began.
Ailing holiday firms, who have lost millions this year, are likely to launch Big sales in a bid to lure Brits abroad.
More countries are expected to be added to the scheme in the coming weeks.
