Green List. Green Watch List. Amber List. Red List! Let’s focus on 2022 and no restrictions!
It’s fair to say that travelling out of the UK at the moment is a minefield and a guessing game and that you should probably stay in the UK, unless you like a gamble!
Who do we turn to for clarity? Our resident travel experts – Idle Travel, that’s who.
As many industries return to some sort of normality within their business, travel remains a struggle as countries in the traffic light system continue to change almost daily, so does the traffic light system itself.
With all of this in mind, Tony, owner of Idle Travel advises caution when booking for this year but, the world is your oyster in 2022!
Think of all of those celebrations you missed; special birthdays, anniversaries, honeymoons, the list is endless. There is a lot of celebrating to catch up on and it’s time to re-look at your ‘bucket list’ of once in a lifetime destinations.
Already the Mediterranean is filling fast with huge demand for next year, there is still availability, but you need to act now if that is where you are planning to go. With expected high demand for the most popular holiday destinations, prices could take a large hike the longer you leave it – or there may be nowhere left to book on the dates you want.
What ticks your boxes?
How about exploring The Rocky Mountains, located within the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta. Famous worldwide for their jagged edges, snowcapped peaks, alpine lakes, breath taking scenery and diverse wildlife. Now there’s a trip worth considering.
How about a cruise of the Norwegian Fjords? This is a cruise like no other. Steeped in history, Norway is a Scandinavian country encompassing mountains, glaciers and beautiful, picturesque fjords. Capital, Oslo is known for its green spaces and many museums while Tromso is famous as a viewing point for the spectacular northern lights.
Have you considered a Twin Centre trip to New York and Las Vegas?
Along with the more traditional attractions such as the Statue of Liberty, Times Square and Brooklyn Bridge, Idle Travel can suggest a host of alternative ways to soak up the culture and history of New York.
Love it or loathe it, Las Vegas is one of the world’s most incredible cities. The glittering lights and shimmering pools appear like a mirage out of the Nevada Desert and the city boasts many of the world’s largest and most elaborate hotels. Plus, world class shows, of course the casinos and the spectacle of the dancing fountains at the Bellagio Hotel is not to be missed.
It’s time to plan ahead, spark the wanderlust and tick some dreams fulfilled boxes. Last word from Tony, “2022 will be ‘the year’ that the travel industry bounces back but remember, the one thing this last couple of years has taught us is that whatever you book, make sure you have ‘Flexible Terms’.”
