Geoffrey Kent, Founder and Co-Chairman of travel company Abercrombie & Kent has commented on the lifting of travel restrictions for England.
He said: “Lifting of travel restrictions is the lifeline the UK economy needs right now. While not only injecting cash into a ravaged travel industry, it’s an essential step in lifting the mood of the nation. We need more destination specific guidance so that Brits can make informed decisions.
“We’re already seeing an 80% increase in enquiries for our European villas and anticipate other holidays closer to home on the continent will do well. This is exactly what the travel industry needs and of course, will help the mood of the nation.
“We applaud the UK government for finally giving the UK travel industry the lifeline it needs to get back on the road to recovery. We know that our clients are itching to travel and get back to exploring the world safely.”
