Welcome to May's Newsletter

Red, Amber or Green, that is the question we all keep asking and today we should be finding out what the first version of the traffic light system will be for international travel to commence on 17th May! I am expecting at this first stage only a few countries to be on the green list, more on amber and many still on red, however this is a really positive step for our Industry. What I do believe is that as we go into June and the summer months, most places will be open and on the green list and summer holidays will be possible to most destinations. PCR tests may be required but these are dropping in costs and we may even see the use of lateral flow tests more as we head into summer. As always I will keep you updated, but for now, the good news is 'International Travel is coming back!'

To give you some inspiration, today's Newsletter is a mixture of offers for later this year and into next year so you can get that dream holiday planned and booked. We know as demand increases, prices will rise so I still say - book early! 
These offers are of course just a few ideas so please get in touch and I can help you with any type of enquiry. 
Take care everyone
