Can’t stop thinking about where you’ll be able to go on holiday this year? If you’re pretty much packed, passport in hand, waiting by your front door right about now, this map might come in handy. 

As lockdowns ease, borders start opening again and flight routes kick back into action around the globe, we’re all starting to think about when we’ll be able to travel again and what it’ll look like when we do. 

While some countries remain closed to travellers, many countries like Italy and Portugal are already welcoming tourists back. Compulsory quarantines are in place in some places, like the UK, where new arrivals must self-isolate for 14 days. Other countries, like Iceland, are offering health tests at the airport to passengers as they touch down. Everywhere seems to have a different rule when it comes to who is allowed in right now. 

It's a fast moving conversation, but this handy Tripsguard tool is breaking down the world map country-by-country.

You can move around the map, or type in a country you’re keen to visit to find out if borders are open, what rules and restrictions are currently in place for travellers, whether public transport is running in the country and if restaurants, bars and attractions are currently open or not. You can also search for countries that are currently actively welcoming tourists from anywhere in the world, like Slovenia and Mexico

It’s not quite as fun as thumbing through a guidebook or scrolling Instagram to find your next adventure, but, hey: in 2020, needs must. 

When will flights resume? Here’s what we know so far
