PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Popular travel agency On The Beach has made the decision to stop the sale of summer holidays set to depart before the end of August over concern of the UK Government's traffic light travel system. The company made the decision after conducting research amongst tourists and the possibility of further disruption to customer plans. The chief executive of the firm, Simon Cooper had blasted the system for providing no clarity beyond a three-week window about which destinations people can travel to without isolating.

As the Manchester Evening News reports, Mr Cooper had said On The Beach had "no interest in selling holidays that are unlikely to happen”. He added: "We don’t know enough yet about how the traffic light system will work in practice, and it doesn’t currently give any certainty or clarity beyond a three-week window. “In the coming weeks and months – until vaccination programmes across Europe and beyond are further along in their roll-out – it is very likely that we will see regular fluctuations in destinations’ traffic light classifications, and so there is likelihood of disruption or even cancellations for the many customers who want to book more than three weeks in advance.” Most of the most popular destinations are included in the amber category of the traffic light system devised by the UK Government and visitors to those destinations, including Spain and Greece, must self-isolate on return to the UK and take a range of tests.

. On the Beach said its research showed a "lack of appetite for booking amber destinations, as well as the likely loss of customer goodwill for holidays that might be booked only to be cancelled or re-arranged.” The company continued: “This position will be reviewed following the government’s update on travel and associated restrictions which is expected to be released at the end of May. “On the Beach will monitor the situation closely, and return to selling summer 2021 beach holidays as soon as there is more certainty that new holidays booked will take place without disruption or cancellation, and that the traffic light requirements can be managed by authorities and consumers alike.” Enter your postcode for live traffic and travel updates where you are The Government is set to review its list every three weeks, with countries potentially added or removed partly based on their Covid-19 case rates and the success of their vaccine roll-out. The chief executive further added: “Unlike many of our competitors, we have no interest in selling holidays that are unlikely to happen, as our business model enables us to put customers first, rather than needing to get cash in the door to contribute to high fixed costs, and offering refunds in the form of a voucher when holidays get cancelled. “This is a temporary measure that we will review in line with the next Government announcement. “In the meantime, we will focus our efforts on helping and advising our customers who already have bookings of their options to either still go on their holiday, amend their holiday or, where the holiday is cancelled, refunding them in cash within 14 days.” Read More Related Articles All the countries on the 'amber' travel list and what that means Read More Related Articles Jet2 boss hits out at travel green list as Spain, Turkey, Italy and France excluded
