Will I be able to go on holiday in August? Expert reveals date YOU can go away

Will you be able to go on holiday in August?

Travel expert Myles Quee from luggage delivery company Send My Bag said: “When Health Secretary Matt Hancock commented more recently that ‘summer is essentially cancelled’ and the government rolled out a compulsory 14-day quarantine for UK arrivals, it seemed a summer abroad was even less likely.

“But, more recently, there has been more cause for optimism.

“As lockdown restrictions ease in the UK and across the continent, short-haul flights for UK travellers this summer now seem a possibility.“

He added: “Provided air bridges are in place by the end of June, international travel restrictions could be lifted first.

“But, with non-essential shops able to open from June 15, the hospitality industry will hope it encourages UK nationals to travel around the country more.

“That said, Boris Johnson has previously stated that he hoped to open some of the hospitality industry in Phase three which could be implemented later from July 4.”
