MAY half term is going to be an even bigger event than usual this year, as it’s the first time people in England can go on holiday with people outside their household.
From May 17, groups of up to six people from different households or unlimited numbers of people from two households can share a holiday let together.
Hotels, hostels and B&Bs are also allowed to reopen on that date.
School holiday and term time dates can vary depending on which part of the country you live in, but for most schools, the May half-term in 2021 is set to start on Monday May 31 and last for one week.
It’s a great time to get away for a UK break with the kids before the crowds and prices hike up in the school summer holidays.
Some of the best deals are:
From June 21, there will be no restrictions on group sizes for holidays.
