'There's no way' - What Echo readers said about travelling overseas in 2020
A majority of Echo readers have said they will not travel abroad this year following the coronavirus lockdown – even if the Government guidance changes to allow it.
The Foreign & Commonwealth Office currently advises British nationals against all but essential international travel – but with some airlines and travel companies preparing to resume flights, people have started thinking about future trips.
More than 400 people took part in the online poll, with 73% saying they would NOT travel abroad in 2020, if Government guidance were to change.
This is what you said on social media:
John Wild: “Have missed one holiday in April and I’m not going in October. Not worth the risk especially since insurance companies say they won’t cover for the virus.”
Lynne Bostock: “There's no way that I will be going on holiday this year and I am seriously considering not booking up for next year also. I suffer from a range of conditions and I am not prepared to risk going away.”
Graeme Collinson: “We’re writing this year off. Hopefully go away twice next year, all being well.”
Caz Pea: “Wouldn't bother booking another holiday until we get refunded for holidays that have been cancelled. Not going to chance losing more money.”
Alice Morgan: “It would depend on a lot of factors.”
Paul Baggett: “Considering how bad the infection and death rates in this country are at present it would probably be the safer option to spend a week in Spain.”
