Holidays and travel advice

Will we be able to go on holiday this year?

With the current worldwide pandemic, many of us are considering that we are most likely to have our summer holidays cancelled or postponed but for how long, we simply do not know. It seems that for the foreseeable future (at least 12 weeks) travel is going to be a thing of the past unless done for emergencies. All holidays for the next few weeks have already been cancelled and many holiday firms are not allowing bookings before May at the earliest.

It may be that there is a sudden boom in holidays during the winter months thing year which may mean destinations that are only hot during the spring summer months such as Greece, Italy and Spain miss out on a huge chunk of revenue.

If you do want to ensure you get away this year, it may be worth looking to book something a little more local. There are some beautiful holiday locations within the UK which, especially if the weather is nice, can be perfect for a holiday.  Even if the weather isn’t that great, as long as you plan some activities it can be very enjoyable still. For now, we all need to make the most of our gardens and local walks and hopefully this time will pass quickly.
