Despite the concerns from travellers over the course of May 2022, the post-Covid demand for travel has continued to soar over the course of the past few months. With so many excited to take off on a new adventure, it is perhaps no surprise that summer travel availability has become a concern for some, but it doesn’t need to cause unnecessary stress.
With the great demand for travel and the summertime approaching, some UK travel businesses have warned their consumers about the narrowing summer travel availability in many of the top summer destinations for UK travellers. This alongside the many European destinations that have begun to drop all entry requirements is shaping up to be a busy summer for travel (you can check the entry requirements for your chosen destination on the Foreign Travel Advice page).
Many travel businesses are advising their consumers to book ahead and approach their plans with flexibility in mind. This is great advice, and it doesn’t just apply to the busy season. Booking ahead can have great advantages, including the ability to prepare, be flexible, and book with complete peace of mind knowing that you have time to find travel insurance, pack, ensure you have everything you need, and more.
Booking a package holiday with an expert travel agent is one of the greatest and simplest ways to ensure you have the most flexible and protected holiday you can, whether the summer travel availability is tight or not. We always advise consumers to find an excellent travel agent that can take the stress of their shoulders.
When you book with an expert travel agent that is a member of Protected Trust Services (PTS), you receive some of the best financial protection in the UK travel industry.
When you book with a PTS member your holiday is protected under the Package Travel Regulations, the ATOL scheme (where applicable), and all your monies are kept separate and safe in the PTS trust account. And because we reconcile daily, here at PTS, you can find out where your money is at any time from the moment you book, meaning that if you need to get a refund or make an amendment, you can do it efficiently and with minimal stress.
Booking with a trusted travel agent ensures that you are kept up to date on anything you need to know. From the restrictions in a destination, to the expiration on your passport, and more. A good travel agent is passionate about giving you the best holiday they can, even during the summer travel availability concerns.
