Passport News – British travel agencies want to crucify Boris Johnson

Not only travel agencies, but also wholesale operators and airlines expressed their fury last Sunday, November 1, when the Prime Minister announced the unexpected ban on traveling abroad from November 5 to December 2. “We will break it all” was the general opinion of British tour operators, who counted on the income that would be generated from the sale of a good number of tickets and packages that had already been issued for the entire month of November.

The decree says that you will not be able to travel for any vacation reason. You can only travel for work, education or other legally permitted reasons. “There is no exemption for being away from home, not even for vacations. This means that people cannot travel internationally or within the UK. Overnight stays outside the main residences will not be allowed, except for specific exceptions, including work, ”said the note published by the prime minister’s office.

This Sunday, countless executives of travel companies expressed their outrage that they were not consulted or warned previously about a decision that will cost them tens of millions of pounds. The travel and tourism industry is now expecting a new flood of demands for refunds similar to the first lockdown, putting pressure on agents, airlines and vacation companies.

The agencies representing UK airlines and airports issued a joint statement condemning what they called “a 180-degree change in travel policy, after adding the Canary Islands to the list of open destinations, just recently one week”.

The government, for its part, says it is “working alongside the industry” on a testing plan to allow the current 14-day quarantine to be cut in half. The Global Travel Taskforce, co-chaired by Secretary of Transportation Grant Shapps and Secretary of Health Matt Hancock, will present an imminent report.
