Which? response as England is set to launch regional travel corridors

Rory Boland, Editor of Which? Travel, said:

“Holidaymakers are acutely aware of the risks involved with foreign travel, but this latest snap change still offers no clarity as to how these decisions are made. This approach continues to cost travellers dearly, either through paying extortionate airfares in the scramble to get home, or because speculation that their destination may be added to the quarantine list causes them to needlessly cancel a holiday.

“It’s clear that the current travel corridor system is not working for passengers, and is further damaging confidence in the sector. A major reassessment of the UK government’s approach is needed to ensure holidaymakers don’t continue to lose money, and tour operators and airlines have a better opportunity to get back on their feet financially.”
