“If we need to cancel holidays because of updated Government guidance, or after reviewing our holiday programme, we will contact customers and aim to give at least seven days advance notice.”

Holidaymakers can request a full cash refund, or change their holiday to a different date or location with a booking incentive if their holiday is affected.

The traffic light scheme could be scrapped next month, with no more green or amber lists, while vaxxed Brits may be able to skip the required PCR tests.
