Following the PMs’s announcement, Hoseasons issued an update to its website.

It has set out how specific rules for England, Wales and Scotland where opening dates currently vary due to devolved Government restrictions.

For customers with holiday plans in England, holidays will be cancelled up to and including April 11.

The website states: “During national lockdown and in Step one, holiday accommodation is not permitted to open in England.

“We have emailed all customers with a booking in England that are due to travel on or before April 11 2021 with their options, which include the choice of a refund or a voucher of the amount paid for the booking. Please refer to that email to make your choice.”

From April 12, single households will be permitted to travel to self-catered accommodation.

Hoseasons adds: “In Step three, domestic overnight stays will be permitted provided that the party size is no greater than six people (from up to six households) or is no more than two households (of any size).

“We have emailed all customers that we believe are affected by this rule with the option to reduce party size or cancel for a refund or voucher.

“If you have not received an email from us, and you are unable to use your booking in compliance with the household/party size restrictions or updated government guidance, please contact us to discuss your options, which will include the choice between a refund and a voucher of the amount paid for your booking.”

Customers in Wales will have their holiday cancelled if it was due to go ahead on or before March 12.

Hoseasons has assured it will email options to guests, including the choice of a refund or a voucher of the amount paid.

“If you have a booking on or after 13 March 2021, rest assured that we will be in touch with the options available to you closer to the time,” adds the holiday provider.

Holidays due to go ahead in Scotland are cancelled up to and including April 25.
