TUI said it would cancel all planned holidays to Spain

TUI has cancelled all holidays to Spain until 9 August.

What will holidaymakers who are already there or have a holiday booked do?

Spain is no longer in the list of safe countries to travel because the UK has removed from the list because of the second wave of COVID-19 risk.

There’s an explanation for this. People who turn back to the UK will have to self- isolate for fourteen days.
