Breaking News ! As the Government confirm that air bridges will soon be put in place, making it easier for Brits to jet off in the coming weeks and months, Martin Lewis has issued a warning to holidaymakers about their passports. Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has confirmed that air bridges will replace a fortnight of quarantine for Brits returning from overseas. Mr Shapps said that the Government will "shortly begin to ease the health measures at the UK border" allowing passengers to be "exempted from self-isolation requirements in certain circumstances on arrival in the UK".

Martin Lewis issues passport alert to Brits hoping to go on holiday But money expert Martin has urged everyone planning to jet off to double check their passports so their holidays aren't ruined before they've even begun.

. Officials have admitted that services are running slower than normal because of the pandemic, with reports of some applicants waiting up to three months for their new passport. Martin, who said he would NOT book a holiday right now, revealed that he'd been contacted by one woman who said she had to wait 13 weeks for her passport to be renewed, forcing her to now cancel her holiday and lose thousands of pounds. He told viewers at home: "Because renewal is taking time for some people, if your renewal isn't valid and that means you can't travel, don't expect a cancellation refund from your hotel or flight. "And don't expect your travel insurance to cover you for a non-valid passport."
