Travelling for a Funeral
Travelling within Scotland and the UK
People are allowed to travel within Scotland to attend a funeral service. People can also travel to and from other parts of the UK to attend a funeral service.
Each UK country may have different rules for funerals. Those travelling should check the rules for the country they are travelling to before they go.
Travelling from abroad
People travelling from abroad to attend a funeral service in Scotland must familiarise themselves with the rules on international travel and managed isolation.
Travelling abroad to go to a funeral
Those who are planning to travel abroad for a funeral should check the foreign travel advice by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).
Travelling safely to a funeral
Wherever possible, funeral service attendees should travel to the venue in a car by themselves or with people from their household group. If this is not possible and funeral transport (e.g. provision of cars or limousines) is required or chosen then the advice from Transport Scotland on how to travel safely should be followed. In particular, see the sections on private hire vehicles and car sharing.
