Rory Boland, Which? Travel Editor, said:
“Yet another week of intense speculation about which countries will be removed from the travel corridor list has ended with the government making an unexpected announcement and not removing any countries.
“This approach is confusing and costly, with speculation that their destination may be added to the quarantine list causing some travellers to needlessly cancel their trip, therefore losing their right to a refund. It is also making it impossible for the travel industry to operate.
“The government knows this and yet it continues to offer no clarity around how these decisions are made. If the government is serious about letting international travel resume while prioritising public health, a major reassessment of its approach is needed.”
