Looking to book a break abroad at short notice but there seems contradictions (or 404 pages) between info from travel co's, testing co's and gov websites especially about whether a covid test before leaving UK is required if you're fully vaccinated. Is there an reliable source of requirements that's up to date?

Ryanair has a table on their website with the links to the government sites for the countries they fly to which may be useful
In the main UK travel companies take their advice from the UK Gov website and some are a bit slower to update their websites/ inform their staff.
Be aware however at times things change quickly and there are mixed messages... even our own government was flip flopping between within 72 hours and within 3 days for the prior requirement of a lat flow test for entry. As such it can be useful to double check the government website of your proposed destination but that depends somewhat on how good the country is at updating this type of thing and how your language skills are.
V good for the destinations they use. If only our gov site gave such clear advice!
