Which? comments on the potential of islands being added to the green list

Rory Boland, Which? Travel Editor, said:

“Moving some popular island destinations to the green list if the health situation allows would be potentially great news for holidaymakers, as it would open up travel with minimal hassle to popular destinations like the Canaries, Balearics and some Greek islands.

“The government should use the next review to ensure the list of green, amber and red countries and destinations are aligned with Foreign Office advice. Currently, there are a number of amber list destinations that do not carry travel warnings from the FCDO – and anyone with a booking to one of those destinations risks losing their money if they follow government advice and decide to cancel.

“The government should remove the confusion around travel advice by ensuring that amber and red list destinations also come with Foreign Office travel warnings. That should allow any package holiday customers who can not travel to get a refund.”
