Sean Moriarty, CEO of Quinta do Lago, Portugal, comments:

We are absolutely delighted that Portugal has been included on the UK’s ‘green list’. The Algarve is in the top three most popular destinations for British travellers and this news enables our UK guests to return to Quinta do Lago for the summer season. Portugal has been recognised for managing the virus exceptionally and our resort lends itself well to an outdoor and active lifestyle. We are welcoming back British travellers with a selection of brand new, enriching experiences all designed with people’s safety in mind.

Rebecca Masri, Founder of Little Emperors comments:

We are delighted that Israel has been added to the UK’s “Green List” for travel. Little Emperors has been the top UK agent for Israel for some time now and it’s great to see this destination become so popular in recent weeks as the country begins to open up to UK travellers. With 50 partner hotels in Israel, the new Six Senses Hotel opening, and the country’s rich history and vibrant culture, it’s no wonder that 10% of Little Emperors 35,000 members have already made bookings to this Mediterranean hotspot.”
