Foreign secretary Dominic Raab warned on the radio over the weekend that it is "too early for people to book summer holidays abroad".
The Times reports that speaking to LBC, Raab said it was "very difficult to plan" for trips abroad as the government closed all remaining travel corridors this morning, in response to new variants of coronavirus.
Asked about booking summer holidays, Raab said: “I think at the moment it’s too early, I think you have to follow the guidance that we’re putting out.
“The rules now are very clear that people shouldn’t be travelling domestically, or certainly internationally, unless there are very exceptional reasons. I’m afraid until we’re in a position to give the reassurance, I think it’s very difficult to plan.”
Everyone arriving in the UK will be required to have had a coronavirus test within the previous 72 hours and to go into quarantine for 10 days, or five days under the government’s test-and-release programme.
