Madeira Islands, Portugal: safest travel destination in Europe

The COVID-19 vaccine rollout has given us all hope that travel will be possible again. But with the situation changing daily, and travel restrictions too, it’s hard to pinpoint a low-risk place to book a trip.

Canadian travel expert, Matthew Keezer, suggests we look for places which have remained stable throughout the pandemic, rather than choosing the destinations that were popular before the pandemic.

What makes a destination safe?

Firstly, nowhere is immune from COVID-19. But you’re in with a better chance of getting away on holiday, with relatively low restrictions, by looking for places which have experienced fewer cases of COVID-19. For example, cities and areas where hospitals have avoided overcrowding and are less likely to impose curfews or other restrictions.
