Which? responds as four more African countries added to government’s red travel list

Rory Boland, Which? Travel Editor, said: 

“This news is a further reminder that travel is not back to normal, and that the pandemic will continue to throw travellers’ plans into jeopardy, often at short notice. 

“All flights are suspended to these four countries, so passengers will be entitled to a refund for their holiday or flight, so long as they booked with a UK or EU carrier, or with any carrier due to depart from the UK or EU. However, getting refunded for the cost of accommodation will be trickier, and will depend on the property’s policy. 

“If your trip is several weeks or months away, travellers should at this stage do nothing as the situation may change. Those booking a trip should do so through holiday providers with good, flexible booking policies in case it cannot go ahead.”
