SPAIN is set to welcome back Brit tourists without travel restrictions by March next year
Spanish officials have indicated that they hope to welcome UK tourists back to the country – with no travel restrictions – by March 2021. Currently, while Brits can travel into Spain, they need to present a negative Covid-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of travel, which many travellers have complained costs far more than their flights, making the expense of a Mediterranean holiday far too prohibitive.
Tourism Minister for the Balearic Islands Iago Negueruela explained that safe tourism should start from “from the end of March,” adding: “First of all, however, there is the task of positioning, selling and explaining to the world that the islands are a safe destination.”
Spain has reported a €70billion loss in the tourism sector this year, having seen some 63million fewer travellers than usual.
A Mallorca tour operator told Majorca Daily Bulletin that the promise of a vaccine has already seen more Brits booking holidays: “with discounts on offer for March, April and May we are predicting that the tourist season will be better in 2021, even although it will still be around 50 per cent less than 2019.
