Rory Boland, Editor of Which? Travel, said:
“The government’s attempt to relax international travel restrictions has been a complete mess, leaving millions of people with no clarity over whether their holiday can go ahead and less chance of getting their money back if they can’t go.
“Holidaymakers will now have to check a list by the Department for Transport, a different list by the FCO, as well as any restrictions at their destination country to find out if it is safe to travel – so they would be forgiven for thinking this announcement hasn’t been thought through.
“If the government is to have any hope of getting travel back up and running, it must urgently provide clear and coherent guidance on foreign travel to remedy the mass confusion caused so far.”
