Consumer champion Which? has branded the government’s latest travel corridor announcement confusing, and urged ministers to do a better job clearly communicating where travel is and isn’t possible.
Transport secretary Grant Shapps on Thursday (17 September) announced Thailand and Singapore would be added to the country’s quarantine-free travel corridor list as of 4am on Saturday (19 September).
However, both countries have onerous entry requirements, including quarantine, which puts them all-but out of reach of short-term visitors, such as tourists.
Which? travel editor Rory Boland said the lack of clarity from the government’s travel corridor announcements, broken in usual in a string of tweets by Shapps, could lead people to purchasing flights they are effectively unable to use.
