Is a last minute deal a good idea?

With the world thrown into chaos recently with the Covid outbreak, many people have had to drastically rethink their holiday plans. Many flights are now resuming allowing you to travel to certain countries but this is changing daily and countries are moving on and off the safe list.

Holidays can be expensive, especially if you have a large family, so you will probably be looking to save as much money as possible when booking one. Many people use the internet now to book holidays but there can still be some great deals to be had in travel agents. Now may be a good time to grab a bargain but there are also still quite a few ricks that you need to weigh up. If you arrive at the airport and you or a member of your family has a temperature, even if it is just from a cold, you will not be allowed to fly. Most travel insurance policies are not covering Covid if taken out since the outbreak so you may lose out on your money and your holiday. It may be that when you first go on holiday that country is classed as safe and so there is no reason to self-isolate upon your return. This problem that many tourists have encountered recently is that this information can change within 24 hrs so you may all of a sudden be told you will need to isolate upon your return. This could cause you to miss work or your children to miss their return to school.
