What Should Holidaymakers Expect For The Return to Travel

UK travellers have been given the go-ahead to travel to selected destinations for leisure travel from 17th May. But how will travel have changed to what we know it to be?

It is no longer going to be a sure thing that a planned holiday destination will be on the UK government’s “green list” by the time travellers fly.

It is now more important that people check the terms and conditions of bookings very carefully. Travel companies and airlines have put a lot of flexibility in place on bookings to account for these last-minute changes.

The UK government is encouraging holidaymakers to only book holidays which guarantee a refund or refund credit note in the event of travel advice changing.

Additionally, travellers will now have to expect long waits at the border. Manual checks of passenger test certificates and passenger locator forms will be in place.

These necessary checks are being enforced to protect its people and to reduce the risk of increased Covid-19 cases.

Travellers must be more prepared and compliant with the requirements in place.

The travel industry can help by preparing passengers for the checks they can expect at the border. But passengers should be prepared for it to take longer.
