GREECE and Turkey are the two countries where bookings are rising the most for 2021, according to reports from TUI.
Boosted by recent positive travel news, Brits are snapping up holidays in the two destinations, both of which look like reasonably good prospects for foreign travel this year.
While it won’t be until April 12 that Brits discover if they’ll be going on holiday abroad this summer, Greece is looking like a good prospect for a break, as the country announced today that it would be open for tourists by May 14.
Meanwhile, Turkey plans to welcome Brits back by June as it pushes ahead with its vaccine rollout.
Those wanting to travel abroad when restrictions lift can find some great deals to both countries.

Greece has previously been in talks with UK ministers about welcoming tourists who have been vaccinated to the country this summer – without them having to have negative coronavirus tests.
This would instead require a vaccination passport to prove they have been given both doses of the vaccine.
Turkey’s vaccination program has so far seen more than 8.45million jabs given, using shots developed by China’s Sinovac Biotech.
According to reports in Turkish media, Turkey has also already been in talks with UK ministers regarding foreign travel, and with the news website saying that tourists will likely start flying into the country from June.
Brits will know more about foreign travel on April 12 when the government publishes a travel review.
Currently a lockdown ban on most international travel will remain until at least May 17.
If you fancy staying in the UK, holiday parks are also offering huge bargains – some of which start from £3pp a night.
