People from all corners of the UK are now unable to travel any length of distance to see family on Christmas Day. The new travel restrictions come after the discovery of a new strand of coronavirus, which has led to government leaders placing the toughest travel restrictions in each nation. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has placed millions of people in London and much of the south-east into a new tighter tier – Tier 4 – and has scrapped the original Christmas guidelines for the remaining Tiers 2 and 3. People in Tier 4 are unable to meet other people indoors and are not able to form a Christmas bubble whilst Tiers 1,2 and 3 are now only able to meet their Christmas bubble for one day – December 25.

Those not in Tier 4, which includes Hull and East Riding which currently stands in Tier 3, are able to see a maximum of two other households on Christmas Day. So what does that mean for travel? Tier 4 If you are currently living in a Tier 4 area, the government have said you must stay at home and not leave or be outside of your home or garden except where you have a ‘reasonable excuse’. This means residents should stay local and not travel outwith their town, village or part of the city they reside in – including on Christmas day. People in Tier 1,2 or 3 are not permitted to travel to a Tier 4 area, again other than where you have a 'reasonable excuse'. Travel abroad is not permitted unless it is for a legally permitting reason, i.e. for work. Overnight stays are not permitted, unless you are visiting a support bubble. Support bubbles are separate from Christmas bubbles which are not permitted under Tier 4 rules. Only single occupant households may form social bubbles. Tier 3 If you live in a Tier 3 area, the government have said you should avoid leaving the area other than for work, education or caring responsibilities. This includes travelling to an area with a lower prevalence of the virus i.e. Tier 1 or 2, including on Christmas Day. Although if you do plan to travel, you should abide by the rules for whatever tier you travel to, but travel to a Tier 4 area is not permitted. Hull and East Riding are currently in Tier 3, where it is advised not to travel Hotel and B&B stays are permitted over the festive period if necessary, between December 24 and 26 but you should not gather at one of these premises with your Christmas bubble unless they live there permanently. If necessary, you can stay in private rented accommodation such as short term holiday lets with members of your household, or your Christmas bubble. You may travel abroad, including to visit friends and family, although the government have advised against it. Although, many European countries have imposed travel bans for visitors coming from the UK. Tier 2 There are no travel restrictions placed in Tier 2 areas but the government have advised that residents should avoid leaving the area they live in. If people from Tier 2 travel to a Tier 1 area, they must continue to abide by Tier 2 rules. Travel to Tier 3 areas should only be done when there is a reasonable excuse, but travelling through a Tier 3 area is allowed when part of a longer journey. Travel abroad is permitted but the government have said people should carefully consider whether they must do so.
