Tour operators have canceled 2022 holidays due to uncertain travel situation

A TOUR operator has announced that they will be canceling some holidays in 2022, and many more are likely.

Saga, which specializes in organizing holidays for people over 50, has pulled some departures into 2022 due to travel uncertainty such as cases of increased variation of Omicron.

Based on Weekly travel, About 3,000 Saga pre-orders were affected.

The tour operator is blaming the pandemic and ongoing uncertainty around international travel, saying it wants to offer “high-quality” trips to its customers.

Affected customers will be offered an alternative stay or a full refund.

A spokesperson for Saga said: “The international travel market remains uncertain post-pandemic and, in light of this, Saga has re-reviewed the vacations it is offering to customers.

“At the heart of this is making sure we’re delivering the trips our customers want and we’re confident we can deliver the highest quality with the least potential for problems.”

The travel industry is taking a hit as concerns about the prevalence of the Omicron variant make it more restrictive.

Ryanair has also canceled thousands of flights to Morocco through February 2022 due to the current flight ban, while Eurostar has canceled direct flights to Disneyland Paris until at least March 2022.

Every traveler entering the UK now needs to have a PCR test done within 48 hours of arrival and quarantine until the results come back negative.

Scots and Welsh people First Ministers Nicola Sturgeon and Mark Drakeford have called for more urgent measures to combat the spread of the new strain of bacteria in the UK.

They are urging the Prime Minister to go further by forcing everyone to take a test for the eighth day, and isolating until negative results return.

Ten countries are on the tourist red list: Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia, Angola, South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Eswatini and Namibia.

A British couple were recently forced to go home early from a holiday in Cape Town after it was added to the red list – and are now facing a £3,700 quarantine bill.

New rules have also been introduced for British people travel to the US, with all arrivals having to have a negative Covid test 24 hours in advance.
