WTTC Responds to Latest UK Government Announcement

London, United Kingdom, July 9, 2021 / TRAVELINDEX / Virginia Messina, WTTC Senior Vice President, said: “Holidaymakers and the Travel & Tourism sector will breathe a sigh of relief now that quarantine-free holidays have been given the green light by the government for those that have been fully jabbed.

“While it’s a step in the right direction, there is still a long way to go before holidays become truly affordable – and accessible. The requirement for PCR tests to return from amber list countries will remain, pricing out many hard-working families from being able to take holidays abroad.

“And though it’s great news for the double jabbed and under-18’s who also are exempt from quarantines, it still leaves more than one in three UK adults who’ve only received a single dose, forced into quarantine when they arrive back in the UK from an amber list country.

“Countries must take a coordinated and harmonised approach and align policies to avoid confusion among holidaymakers who need easy to understand rules and regulations more than ever before.”
