Travel Safer - Public Transport Latest Guidance

It is mandatory for people to wear a three-layer face covering while travelling on public transport in Wales and this includes taxis.

To help keep everyone safe - Please read our tips below:

  • In Wales we still have a 2-metre distancing rule so please be aware of this when visiting.
  • Rule of 6 - Only 6 people can meet inside. These 6 people must be from your exclusive 'bubbling' households but do not include children under the age of 11 (these households are exclusive and cannot be swopped/changed)
  • Masks are required inside shops and pubilc places
  • Accommodation bookings - The rules in Wales are that four households may meet inside (mximum of 6 people excluding children under 11), and those 4 households must have formed an exclusive ‘bubble’  – the same rules apply when you are booking accommodation.
  • Check that the business you are visiting/staying in, have done their risk assessments and that they are ready to welcome visitors safely - Check our ‘Good to Go’ page for more details.
  • If you are booking multiple properties, then up to 30 people can meet outside and social distancing rules apply.
  • All contact details/address details will be required for accurate 'Test, Track, Protect'
  • Wash your hands regularly and bring enough hand sanitiser with you when you visit.
  • If you are staying in the area and experience symptoms (NHS Symptom Checker), you will be expected to return home immediately. If you are unable to travel due to illness please check with the accommodation for costs you may incur if you are expected to ‘self-isolate’ in the accommodation.
  • Please respect our beaches and beauty spots and take your rubbish home.
  • Plan your journey - check whether public toilets are open in the areas you are travelling to, as these may differ by town/county.
  • Ensure you read all the information provided to you from pre-booked businesses and that you fully understand any changes in rules/requirements.
  • Bars and restaurants have re-opened but pre-booking is required.

Key Dates

Welsh Government Guidelines

Wales’ Covid Guidelines could change on a week to week basis as new advice and evidence becomes available.

If cases begin to rise, the Welsh Government may need to reintroduce restrictions and these dates may change – of course we hope this won’t be the case.
