What a debacle. None of the UK’s countries can agree which foreign destinations are in or out of quarantine on return. It’s a nightmare for anyone booking to go abroad with countries being added and then removed from the approved list in the time it takes to get into the air and land again.
The staycation is becoming a more attractive idea…
Many people we talk to say it’s not worth bothering booking abroad for the rest of the year unless you’re prepared to quarantine when you get back. For some that isn’t an issue. For others it creates huge issues.
A chap on Facebook said he had booked to go to Canada, purchased his Canadian Dollars, then had to cancel. Just re-exchanging cost him £140. Just awful, especially when they have saved for several years to go.
As I type, the weather is pretty good here in Wales so maybe the staycation is the asnswer. Who knows?
