PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Travel expert Simon Calder has told viewers what holidays to book this year after Boris Johnson's road map outlined a date when international travel could resume. On Monday afternoon the Prime Minister revealed the Government's lockdown exit plans to the House of Commons before announcing them to nation in a televised press conference from Downing Street. As expected, the first step out of lockdown will see schools re-open nationwide from March 8, before the rule of six is allowed outside from March 29 and non-essential shops and salons can welcome customers again and bars and restaurants can serve food and drink outdoors no earlier than April 12. And the next big date for the road map - May 17 - is the earliest pubs and restaurants can welcome customers inside and international travel could resume.

He appeared on Tuesday's Lorraine and told host Lorraine Kelly he'd been onto a number of travel companies who'd reported a surge of enquiries following Monday's big announcement. He said: "There will be a lot of people watching last night who put a date in their diary - May 17 - and thought right, we'll book something for then..

. "Even though we still have ministers saying don't book holidays it's too soon, even this morning Matt Hancock was cautious, that's the date to look forward to from the travel industry's point of view." Going onto to give advice on what type of holiday to book up for if you're wanting to jet off this year, Simon added: "Do the right thing and book a proper package holiday through a real human travel agent, so you know you'll get the holiday, my goodness you deserve, or will get your money back." Lorraine replied: "That's the idea. You can book something but make sure, as you say, you're getting to go with someone really reliable and trustworthy."
Simon, who admitted he "couldn't wait to get away," added: "A straight forward package holiday is absolutely the best, gold-plated consumer protection comes with that. "And if you get it through a proper travel agent you've also got someone to take your side and guide you through it, so a lot of sense in doing that."
