Brits will be encouraged to take "a great British holiday" this summer – as soon as it is safe to do so.
The government hopes to give domestic holidays the green light in early July, subject to its "plan to rebuild".
A spokesperson for the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, which also has responsibility for tourism, told the Telegraph at the weekend: “As things stand, people are not permitted to travel to a second home or to stay overnight in a home that is not theirs.
"When it is safe to do so, we will be encouraging people to book a great British holiday.”
According to the government’s roadmap, the earliest hospitality venues – including restaurants, pubs and "accommodation" – will be able to reopen is 4 July; "leisure facilities" will also be allowed to reopen from the same date.
"The government will wish to open as many businesses and public places as the data and information at the time allows," the roadmap states.
