  1. Covid & driving Germany-NL-Belgium-France-UK

    The whole thing is nothing short of a joke.  We’re paying the price of brexit politics.   For this reason, I will try to avoid France when the rules finally permit us to travel to and from the UK without too much headache. I’ve been looking at the ferry from Rotterdam to Hull as an alternative. Then you’re only dealing with Germany, Netherlands and the UK.
  2. Traveling to UK from Germany - quarantine rules

    sorry I can’t answer the question, but I’d assume Omicron is a problem in Germany by that point so the chances of it still being an area with a “variant of concern” is going to be lower.  hope it works out ok for you

    I’d say this is extremely likely, for this reason I will not be travelling now

    Has anyone done the Rotterdam - Hull ferry during recent times? Would you recommend it? Wondering if this make more sense the tunnel….   both ports are the same distance from our destination in the UK

    Thanks, it’s clear alright but it’s out of date and does not reflect the new rules. I guess we need to wait
  6. Traveling to UK from Germany - quarantine rules

    Had anyone managed to interpret the new rules for entering France from the UK?  It states a mandatory 48 hour quarantine upon entering France, but no mention of what do it you’re only transiting through France for an hour or so!
  7. Brexit, New residence permits

    No it does not replace the need for a passport to cross borders. You should carry both when travelling into and out of Germany as well as transiting through Europe

    unfortunately I don’t think the rules will be eased anytime soon. At least not on the German side. The 7 day incidence in the UK is way above the levels needed to declassify the risk category. I hope I am wrong, but it looks unlikely.

      nice one! This is better than the official advice.   I’ve been lost in the endless rule changes, exemptions and permutations 
  10. Traveling to UK from Germany - quarantine rules

    does anyone know how Germany count the days of quarantine? In other words is the day of entry day 0 or 1?   For kids under 12 there is a statement to suggest quarantine ends automatically after 5 days. But the question is, is the entry day classed as one of those 5 days? e.g enter on Saturday and free on Thursday?   maybe the online registration takes care of this and gives you the dates.

    There is a not so explicit reference to kids under 12 needing to quarantine here, where it tells you it can end early:   Kinder, die das zwölfte Lebensjahr noch nicht vollendet haben, endet die Absonderung fünf Tage nach der Einreise automatisch.   https://www.bundesgesundheitsministerium.de/coronavirus-infos-reisende/faq-tests-einreisende.html

      oh dear is this really true?  I wrongly assumed the kids were exempted, but it obviously does make sense.  The website could make things a bit more explicit when it comes to travelling with children.
