Britons warned UK unlikely to ease Covid travel restrictions before start of August


UK ambassadors said the UK is unlikely to see any changes in travel guidelines in July. Their warning follows the Prime Minister’s announcement regarding the easing of all lockdown rules on June 21.

Boris Johnson addressed the nation on Monday to announce that step four of the UK Government’s lockdown roadmap will not go ahead next week.

Toni Mayor, the head of the Hosbec association of Valencia region hoteliers, said after speaking with UK ambassador Hugh Elliott, the reopening of international travel could suffer a delay, the Telegraph reports.

Turkish tourist bosses have purportedly been given a similar prospect by UK Foreign Office officials.

They are understood to not be expecting any changes in the travel advice before the beginning of August.

Meanwhile, the UK’s largest tour operator TUI has cancelled most foreign holidays until July 11 due to “ongoing uncertainty”.

Instead, it offered holidaymakers a range of new UK domestic trips programmes.

It explained it had to “unfortunately had to cancel all holidays” amid “ongoing uncertainty”.

The firm also adjourned all trips with non-TUI flights to Indonesia, Maldives, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Thailand and UAE up to and including July 11.

TUI said: “We want to offer our customers flexibility and choice this summer, so where borders are open and FCDO advice allows travel, we will operate to those destinations as planned.

“We are constantly reviewing our holiday programme and cancellations in line with the Government updates every three weeks, with the next update expected on 24 June.

“All customers will be contacted as soon as possible if there is any change to their booking.”

It added: “All customers impacted by these cancellations will be contacted directly and will be able to request a full cash refund.

“Or they can change to a later date or alternative holiday and receive a booking incentive.”
