European countries disapprove of people from the UK travelling there

People in Spain, Italy, France and Germany would all prefer travellers from other counties over those from the UK.

Airline passengers wearing face masks wait to check in their bags at Heathrow Terminal 5 departures as the outbreak of coronavirus intensifies on March 15, 2020 in London, England. President of the United States, Donald Trump, has implemented a travel ban on European nations and has now extended it to include the United Kingdom and Ireland. The travel ban will begin at midnight EST on Monday as the UK is also set to ban mass gatherings and has already seen the cancellation of major sporting events such as the English Premier League.

UK tourists may be less welcome than others when they head abroad this summer
People in four European countries are more likely to oppose tourists visiting from the UK over summer than they are visitors from the rest of the continent, a new survey has found.

More than 61% of people in Spain say they would disapprove of people from the UK holidaying there, according to the survey, compared to between 40% and 54% for holidaymakers from elsewhere on the continent.

It comes as countries across Europe continue to ease their coronavirus lockdown measures.

People in Italy, Germany and France are also largely sceptical of UK tourists visiting their countries, with opposition levels at 44%, 58% and 55% respectively.

The research also shows that those countries would be more welcoming to travellers from other European nations.

The survey results come as the UK prepares to relax its quarantine rules for incoming travellers, making it possible for millions of Britons to go on holiday this summer.

A list of more than 75 countries and territories has been released by the government, which sets out where English holidaymakers can travel to, without the need to self-isolate for two weeks on their return.
