Brits Face Fine From Monday For Leaving The UK Without A ‘Reasonable Excuse.’
BRITS face an official holiday ban in law from Monday, March 29, with the risk of a £5,000 (€5,805) fine for flouting the new rules. March 29 is also the key date for meetups of larger groups with only outdoor gatherings allowed.
The new coronavirus rules will come into force next week which includes a ban on anyone leaving the UK without a “reasonable excuse”. The new rules were published today and entitled Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Steps) (England) Regulations 2021.
The document reads: “The Regulations also impose restrictions on leaving the United Kingdom without a reasonable excuse (regulation 8).”
According to the new law, no one can “leave England to travel to a destination outside the United Kingdom, or travel to, or be present at, an embarkation point for the purpose of travelling from there to a destination outside the United Kingdom” without a reasonable excuse.
Under the new Covid laws, people across the country will be officially banned from leaving the country without a reasonable excuse. You can legally leave the Uk:

The need for the restrictions must be reviewed by April 12, and at least once every 35 days thereafter, the legal papers say. The laws expire on June 30, unless they are scrapped or amended in the meantime, so there is some leeway at least.
As for tourism in Spain this year, it is important to remember that Brits themselves are only part of the solution and other countries, like Germany for instance, are allowing holidaymakers to spend their summers here.
