As the outbreak of COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc in our lives, people are advised to travel only when necessary. Travel advice changes on a weekly basis, so it is important to keep up to date with the government advice and regularly check the travel corridor list (a list of countries, territories and regions from where you can travel to England and not have to self-isolate on your return). But there is a glimmer of hope. Prime Minister,

Boris Johnson, recently hinted in a BBC TV interview with Andrew Marr that people could be holidaying abroad with fewer restrictions by April. Rob Gower of Dragonfly Traveller gives his

recommendations for places to go on holiday in April 2021.

Marrakesh Marrakesh is a magical city where spices fi ll the air and you’ll be overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of the locals, bursting with energy and pride for their city. Lose yourself in the striking colours, hand-crafted leather and rugs that have been woven by Berber tribes of the Middle Atlas mountains.

Portugal Portugal’s winning combination of sandy beaches, dramatic scenery and world-class golf courses has kept it fi rmly on the holiday map for decades. And if all that wasn’t enough, the country also has excellent weather credentials, basking in around 300 days of sunshine a year. Curving round the south coast is the Algarve region, which has a dramatic coastline scalloped with sandy bays and secluded coves. Resort-wise, you can choose between large, lively towns and sleepy fi shing villages.

Going forward So, what does the future look like for the travel industry? “Undoubtedly, safety will clearly be the main issue facing future

travel,” said Rob. “Social distancing will somehow need to continue in airports, on planes, in accommodation, restaurants, and everywhere that makes a holiday relaxing. “Airports will most likely take on a different role too, taking temperature checks and testing for those deemed healthy enough to fl y. “We would be happy to talk to anyone considering

booking a holiday for 2021. Our advice when booking is to be careful. Do your research and make sure you understand the restrictions at the destination that you have chosen to visit. Also, check your travel insurance to ensure you have the appropriate cover. We only off er ATOL/ABTA protected holidays but if you are going to book direct yourself, check that you have fi nancial insurance to cover for any disruptions or cancellations. If you do book a holiday online, check that you have the appropriate holiday protection that should come with a package holiday.”
