UK holidays: British holidaymakers warned prices of trips abroad will soar for THREE years | Travel News | Travel

Experts fear that prices for a holiday abroad are likely to skyrocket meaning many will opt for a staycation instead and flock to the seaside. It is hoped that prices will return to pre-pandemic levels once the UK’s economy starts to establish itself again.

But airlines and tour operators are already offering cheap deals for holidays, with easyJet launching flights for summer 2021.

Martyn James, of consumer website Resolver, said: “It’s likely the cost of overseas package deals will double.

“Even when they [customers] get to their hotel, there will be no buffet and all kinds of limitations around the pool.”

Kuoni’s UK Managing Director Derek Jones told Travel Weekly: “I think you might see some really good offers in the marketplace right through to the middle of next year, at least.

“I think we will see capacity-constrained over the next maybe two, three years, which inevitably is going to mean the prices will start to move as they yield off lower capacities.”

Holidays abroad for Britons are unlikely to start again soon even though many airlines including Ryanair and British Airways are expected to restart flights from July.

Britain’s Health Secretary Matt Hancock admitted this week that summer holidays are “likely” to be cancelled amid the ongoing outbreak.

Speaking on This Morning, he said: “It’s unlikely big lavish international holidays are going to be possible for this summer.

Transport Minister Grant Shapps said in the House of Commons yesterday: “The final details of the quarantine scheme will be released soon, coming in early next month.

“It is the case that we would indeed consider further improvements for example, things like air bridges, enabling people from other areas and countries who have themselves achieved lower levels of growth virus infection, to come into the country.

“So those are the active discussions, but will go beyond what will initially be a blanket situation.”
