Tours4fun reviews are right there with you if you are one of the many Americans who put travel on hold in favor of a wait-and-see approach. But are there any real reasons why you should continue to put a stop on holiday planning? Yes, now is the time to start booking future travel; start investigating those dream journeys through reading travel agencies’ reviews, watching the availability of flight awards, and banking those points so that you can book a beautiful resort when the time comes.

Below are the reasons you should wait till next year:

1.   You are not allowed to leave the country

The official advice on the web of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office is the crucial thing here. “It generally lists dangerous places like Syria and Yemen as no-go areas for the British, but it states at the moment: “The Foreign & Commonwealth Office is currently warning British people against anything but necessary international travel. “Yes, the advice is under constant review, but until it changes and the government has given no date as to when it could be lifted, as this week’s home secretary, Priti Patel, said in the Commons: “only necessary travel should be allowed.”

2.   Your travel insurance is invalid

The terminology in virtually all travel insurance plans is that your insurance will be invalidated if you travel to a place the FCO warns against visiting. Although that advice stays in place, the travel insurer’s chances of paying out are the same as walking down at am to the pool and hoping to find a sun lounger not shielded by someone else’s towel.

3.   Planes face a risk of transmitting viruses

It is not much of a problem to be outside on holiday; it is getting to your destination, especially if it means sitting inside a plane near 100 or more people for several hours.

Planes use high-efficiency particulate air (Hepa) filters to purify the air within them, and researchers think they should be effective at reducing the risk of coronavirus.

Airport travel is going to be much more excruciating than ever, too. In May, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) released 28 pages of recommendations to improve the flying experience fundamentally. It involves physical distancing steps previously claimed by Heathrow’s chief executive to be challenging to enforce.

4.   There may be outbreaks at your destination

What if an outbreak of coronavirus and the authorities rightly go back into lockdown in your resort? Note, there were somewhat more restrictive European lockdowns than in Britain. One of the major travel insurance companies, stay sure, said that if you catch coronavirus while abroad but most other plans do not yet have coverage, it will protect you this week. Even if you do not get sick, it might not be much of a holiday when closed.

5.   When you get back, there is a quarantine

All foreign arrivals to the United Kingdom, including returning British citizens, will be forced to self-isolate for 14 days. It was announced during the rules this week, amid fierce opposition from the travel industry.
