Re: Would you take a holiday abroad this year?

I don't fly, but even if I did I'd not want to go anywhere. Not even liking the idea of going somewhere outside my county quite honestly.

I agree, Tiff. I haven't flown since I was a kid and really don't miss it. There are a few places I'd like to visit, but if I don't get to go, I wouldn't regret it.

Re: Would you take a holiday abroad this year?

I know others put much importance on holidays and travel. All through the pandemic the talk is always about 'when can we go abroad on holiday'?

We didn't start going abroad until fairly late in life but since our friends were always talking about travel, we thought we'd try a few places. They were OK but wherever we went, we were always glad to get back home again.

So, no more holidays for us. I don't think we'll miss them.

I can't even get on a plane, but I agree with you.

Re: Would you take a holiday abroad this year?

we don't go abroad, but even if we did it wouldn't be this year..
this was on the morning news, a couple had booked a holiday in Portugal, half way through the holiday Portugal was put on amber list, so they wanted to get a flight home earlier so they wouldn't have to isolate, the flight was to cost 90...next day it had gone up to 145..

I experienced the same thing when I had to come home early from Thailand in March last year due to Sweden closing its borders. My original flight was cancelled and I had to book an alternative with a different airline. The day after I booked the price went up by 100.

Luckily my travel insurance covered the cost for the alternative flight and I got a full refund for the original return flight.
