However, any Brits lucky to have had both jabs, with the second at least twoweeks before travelling, can now take their pick on some of the deals on offer.
The Balearic Islands are also on the UK's green list, meaning Brits don't have to quarantine.
However, the rest of Spain remains on the amber list which includes the Canaries.
Brits who have had both Covid shots will also be able to zoom through fast-track lanes at Heathrow under blueprints to open up travel to amber list countries without the need to quarantine.

The scheme will be trialled by British Airways, Virgin and Heathrow following a meeting last week with Downing Street officials.
