Which? response to Spain reopening borders for UK arrivals

Rory Boland, Editor of Which? Travel, said:

“News that Spain will allow UK residents to visit from June 21 is positive progress towards us being able to get away this summer, but it remains too risky to book a holiday.

“The lack of comprehensive travel insurance makes any holiday booking a gamble and the government must urgently work with the insurance industry to provide policies that cover consumers for coronavirus-related disruption, so they can have confidence booking future holidays.

“The FCO’s travel warning should be extended to a definitive date, which can be reviewed if needed, so holiday providers and airlines know what dates it is appropriate to sell flights and holidays for, and travellers have some much-needed assurances around refunds, rebooking or claiming on insurance.”
