Summer holidays overseas are "extremely unlikely"

........"because of the risk of travellers bringing coronavirus variants back to the UK, a scientist on a government advisory body has said."

I would feel extremely lucky if we were allowed a holiday in our own country, let alone somewhere abroad.

Re: Summer holidays overseas are "extremely unlikely"

I agree, Mags, to get a holiday in Britain would be a miracle.
I can't believe people would want to go abroad, as things are at present, specially in Europe.

Yep, it looks like Staycation in 2021.

If we can't stay with family in Glos. I know of a couple of B&Bs, cash only, key under the log basket, bacon & eggs in the fridge ....

Itís too much of a risk this year Tiff, I value my life more than risking it in another country for a few weeks of sunshine.

Does Boris have the right to hold us prisoners in our own country ?
This is illegal surely

No, they expect folk to be sensible about holidays abroad this year and bringing back the virus with them.

Re: Summer holidays overseas are "extremely unlikely"

We had our Baltic cruise on May 17th cancelled, and to be honest, I'm glad they did. Apart from there being many rules and regulations to adhere to, it wouldn't have been the cruise we expected, and it would have been too risky in my opinion.
We have since requested a refund.

I would not consider a foreign holiday this year, except a visit to Guernsey in August or September should we be allowed.

Foreign travel, cruises and travel insurance could be difficult without a vaccine certificate in the near future OGF.

I don't even want to risk it away from here at present, we could have done a fair at the end of April when they are allowed to run them, but even that one I've said no to, it's Malvern. We would have had to stay the night somewhere.
