  • Holidays & Travel 2021

    With the Covid pandemic feeling like it is easing up slightly, what is everyone thinking about holidays?

    Over the last few weeks restrictions have been eased and we have all been encouraged to try and return to a sense of normality. Whilst this is a great step in the right direction, it can also be hard to balance real life with the right amount of caution. So, should webe travelling this summer? If so, what are the correct precautions to be taking? We have seen companies endorsing ‘cautious travel' - putting safety and flexibility at the top of their priority list.

    Over the last couple of years many people have lost out not only on the opportunity to travel, but also financially. With companies refusing to reimburse cancelled holidays and airlines offering credits rather than refunds when travel corridors have changed at the last minute... This has led to the majority of people who are looking to get away to only consider the safest of options. Which has in turn led to a record number of tourists holidaying in their home countries. However is this now becoming counterproductive?

    With resorts in the UK packed to full capacity and towns heaving with tourists it seems a far cry from the restrictions we were all complying with just a few weeks ago. Yet also a very welcome and much needed break for everyone. Were the restrictions lifted too quickly too soon? Or is everyone just happy to be returning to normal again?
