Travel Q&A: Your questions on quarantine hotels and summer holidays answered Great British Getaways: your ultimate holiday planner Full ‘red list’ of countries from which UK arrivals face hotel quarantine Sign up to the Telegraph Travel newsletter An international law firm is preparing to launch a legal challenge to the Government’s quarantine hotel policy, which came into effect today. PGMBM believes that “the enforced quarantine of people without knowing whether they have Covid-19” is unlawful under the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and should therefore be subject to judicial review. Tom Goodhead, Barrister and Managing Partner of PGMBM criticized “policies which constitute extraordinary violations of traditional liberties and human rights”.

He stated: “It is time for lawyers to take a stand and ensure that the Government, which has shown scant regard for parliamentary scrutiny of Covid-19 legislation and regulations, is held to account.” It comes as Heathrow Airport has warned of chaos at the border today that could lead up to 8,000 daily passengers queueing for five hours as a result of the new checks. From today, arrivals into Britain from red-list countries are required to spend 10 days in a quarantine hotel at a cost of ?1,750 per person. All other passengers must self-isolate at home for 10 days.
