Holidays in the UK are unlikely to resume until June, with Boris Johnson announcing roadmap to come out of lockout later tonight

This news will be a heavy blow to many hotels and B&B which have been forced to close their doors due to the pandemic

According to The Telegraph, it is expected that only limited social gatherings will be allowed from March 29, although this does not include overnight stays

Many tour operators were hoping to resume before the Easter holidays, although this was canceled

Despite this, a boom in demand from the British has pushed the price of Easter holidays up to £ 1,500

Kat Nicholls, of UK Hospitality, said on Twitter: “We’ll need to see the full statement today, but if pubs and restaurants don’t open until May, June and NTE hotels even later , the Chancellor urgently needs to provide additional support – extending existing measures will not be enough to save companies for so long “

She also warned that many of them risk permanent closure if they can’t have the same summer boom as last year

Ms Nicholls told Sun Online Travel: “Last summer we did well – businesses were full – but due to social distancing there were capacity and occupancy constraints

“In August, pubs, bars and restaurants were still trading just below breakeven for the first time since the start of the pandemic, while for holiday parks and hotels, maximum exploitation was by 50%, so the turnover was 70% of normal levels

“It will be very tight and there will be no possibility of adverse effects If we have a washed-out summer and a lot of rain, or other economic changes, we will see trade failures”

She added: “We need to be in the first phase of reopening Summer will be too late for many businesses”

Prime Minister to sketch roadmap out of lockout, starting March 8, later this evening at 7 p.m.

From March 8, when all schools reopen, people will be able to sit outside for drinks with their household or with a friend or relative

Rules will be relaxed again on March 29, allowing six people or two households to meet outside

It will only be towards the end of April – in the third phase of the plan – that non-essential trade opens, reports The Times

As it stands, only essential retailers such as supermarkets and pharmacies are allowed to serve customers

Pubs and restaurants are not expected to open until May, while large outdoor events such as football matches and music festivals are expected towards the end of this month

However, British holiday demand is here for the summer – with some families even on waiting lists for Cornwall

Travel agency has warned Britons to book vacations ahead of the lockdown end date announcement, as that’s when prices are set to rise
