A HOT holiday is the only thing getting many people through the current UK lockdown, which is expected to last until March.
So we’ve rounded up the best places you can book a holiday to in April where temperatures will all be above 20C.
While you can visit each of the following places when lockdown lifts, according to the latest advice, some still require negative coronavirus tests to enter, or a quarantine back in the UK.
New rules mean all Brits returning from abroad from next week will all need a negative coronavirus test as well.
Travel advice can also change at the last minute so holidaymakers are advised to book travel insurance which covers coronavirus cancellations.
Kos – 20C
The Greek island is one of the hottest options in the country, hitting 20 degrees in April.
It is also one of the few islands which remained open to Brits last winter, while the rest of Greece was put onto the quarantine list.
The current restrictions mean you will need to have a negative coronavirus test and a Passenger Locator Form, and will have to quarantine back in the UK.
