He said: "I can confirm today that from the 19th of July, UK residents who are fully vaccinated, through the UK vaccine rollout will no longer have to self, isolate when they return to England."

Mr Shapps added: "In essence, this means that for fully vaccinated travellers, the requirements for green and amber countries are the same."

In response, easyJet has added another 145,000 seats on sale to amber list destinations Spain, Greece, Portugal, France, Italy, Croatia and Cyprus.

Brits can grab a bargain if they are fast with flights from £22.99 and holidays from £249.

The airline also reported a 400 per cent increase in bookings following the announcement, so you will have to be quick to get the cheapest deal.

EasyJet CEO Johan Lundgren said he was "delighted" by the news, adding: "Europe has now turned Green for the double jabbed."

Holidaymakers will still have to check the entry restrictions for their destination too, although most destinations are welcoming Brits who have had both jabs.

Both Portugal and Malta are only welcoming fully-vaccinated Brits, along with France while Spain now requires a negative test, or proof of both jabs, from all UK arrivals.

Brits heading to Cyprus will need to have two Covid tests unless they are fully vaccinated.

However, Germany has recently lifted restrictions for Brits who are fully vaccinated, after initially closing their borders to the UK due to the Delta variant.
