Travel agents call for more clarity on the safety of flying abroad

Confusion is rising due to mixed messages from Government and senior health officials

Travel agents are calling for more clarity on whether or not their customers should holiday abroad this summer.

Confusion is rising as senior health officials are urging anyone who has booked a holiday abroad to cancel it.

But a ‘safe list’ of countries people can fly to, without having to quarantine when arriving back, is currently being drawn up by government.

Des Manning is back in business with local company Manning Travel.

He says many of his customers are confused as to what they should do.

“The people I really feel for are the customers who booked their holidays before [Covid]. What do they do?” He told KCLR Live. “If they don’t go, the airlines aren’t offering refunds, but if they do go, they’re going against the public health advice.”
