    Default Anyone Planning a Holiday In June

    Jet2 seem to think we're back to normal from the 17th of June! Wishful thinking if you ask me. Or more than likely a way to allow them to collect payments for flights/holidays booked after that date.

    Get cash now. Worry about refunds later.

    Latest ruse by some cruise lines is to only cancel cruises within balance due window then cancel when all the cash has come in and offer the punters a 120% future cruise credit or your money back in 2 years if you don't use the FCC. If they do a full refund its 30 to 90 days before you get your money back. Funny how the 2021 cruises have gone up by 25%. To be fair to Jet2 they did refund a cancelled flight immediately once I'd gotten through on the phone after trying for 2 weeks

    The worst are the insurance companies who simply don't want to pay or take any responsibility for anything related to Coronavirus Luckily not had to make an insurance claim yet

    Yes - but we'll drive across the continent rather than use the airport.

    I've got flights and hotel booked for end of June in Edinburgh.

    IHG now offering refunds up till end of June, but slightly complicated as I paid (via Hotels.com) with Tesco vouchers, so dunno how that's gonna work...

    EasyJet encouraging rebooking, but will wait till they cancel and get money back.

    I have thought that when this is over, there may be a brief window to visit places while they are still far far quieter than normal. There are so many iconic locations we simply wouldn't go to because even in my lifetime they've gone from busy to ruinously (to my taste) overcrowded. Rome, Niagra, New Yoik, yada yada.

    June sounds pretty early to me though. Risky too.

    There was a tiny window of opportunity where tourism was falling off a cliff and it could have been relatively safe to visit some places due to a distinct lack of overcrowding.
