It's a fucking mare, I don't want to go, they probably don't want me/us either. But I am looking at a wasted £3k if Jet2 get their way

I think sooner or later they’re going to have to either offer people incentives to cancel so that they can successfully social distance for those who do decide to take it up or knock the whole thing on the head. Suppose it’s whether you want to gamble on the latter or take the hit on the 30% (which is why we’ve got in there with 73 days to go and written off the deposit)

This 14 day quarantine bollocks is the government putting on a show of force they are taking this seriously.

Theres more chance of exporting corona to countries who have handled this better than there is of importing it

Last time I spoke to my lady in Corfu, they had one case

Fcuk knows why they'd want us there

I’m same with the family we stay with in Crete. Their economy is desperate for the tourist dollar but they know that with the tourists comes the risk.

A poster off here reckons the quarantine is Labour's fault, as the Tories are imposing it to appease Labour.

Dave is quite correct in his assertions and my own thoughts are well known ie if we needed a quarantine on inbound travellers, March 23rd was the date to impose it. When finally realising it needed doing on May 22nd, two months later, then surely June 8th is another 17 days too late?

They're fucking the travel industry over here. 2 firms have gone in the past week or so, more will follow because they're getting no help.

But who gives a fuck, your average Tory MP doesn't book a package deal.

I disagree; the virus was rampant then.

Hindsight would suggest around 31 January.

I think I can see the reason why this quarantine starts on 8th June.

3 weeks later when they review it is 29th June. I suspect the measures will be starting to bear fruit so we’ll review it again in 3 weeks time - or 20th July.

well done everyone, time to do away with quarantine, holidays can resume from tomorrow.

Parliament rises for their summer break on 21st July.

Cynical? Me?

Spain have announced they'll be taking British tourists again from 1st July. Great news.

 

Now, to speak to the school and see how they feel about my two having an extra week off in early September....

I’d imagine that rules around taking kids away during term time are out of the window now, certainly for this / next year 

What about the Insurance aspect though? god forbid you go to Spain and get Covid that requires treatment, your not covered and can’t use the Spanish health service for free as we are no longer in the EU - could get very expensive

“As it stands British travellers would not be able to visit Spain for a holiday, as the Foreign Office still advises against all but essential travel. It also remains to be seen whether the UK’s own quarantine policy will still be in place come July.”

worth the risk?

I'm looking at Spain in November, and Portugal in October. But I'm not booking anything at the moment.

I really don't fancy going some place where everybody is walking round in masks, and social distancing is still a priority.

What's my chances?

Jet 2 cancelled my 29th june trip yesterday. Have requested a re-book for 2021 (same dates & hotel).

No update yet on my mid sept jolly to Benalmadina.Will see how the land lies.

But if things carryon improving i will go .
