“We are constantly reviewing our holiday programme and cancellations in line with the government updates every three weeks, with the next update expected on 24 June.

“All customers will be contacted as soon as possible if there is any change to their booking.”

“If we need to cancel any future holidays because of updated government guidance, we will be in touch directly and aim to give customers at least seven days’ notice.

“We would like to thank our customers for their understanding at this time.”
