  1. OK, but Spain, one of the worst countries hit in europe? I could understand surprise if went to Iceland but that's just expected going to somewhere also dealing as much as we are with pandemic, and quite likely how the virus got to UK according to the experts in the first place.

  2. Another scare tactics by Boris Johnson government, this not do with health any more to do more with the economy after the Brexit.
    No checking at UK airports for coronavirus and everything opening up.
    This Government wants people to spend their money here and boost their own economy and let the Spanish economy go into tatters by stopping Brits going there to spend there money and enjoy their holiday.
    The virus will be more rampant after October with the seasonal flu UK.
    The risk of catching coronavirus will be much higher in the winter months, carnage. A holiday in a hot country in the winter months will be more beneficial because you will get less stress, vitimin D3 from the sun and virus is diluted outside.
    Boris Johnson, Matt Hancock and Dominic raab these 3 have to be voted out.
    London protests are fine by the government to spread the virus around.

  3. Why anyone would travel now. Is beyond me. The logical thing to do is to wait for the second wave to be done in the majority of places before anyone moves. Also no one needs to go on holiday so unless its a necessity to travel you only have yourself to blame. Life is risk versus reward, everyday. Some people lose some win.

  4. Is covid19 the real reason, considering the UK has more cases? Funny how the Brexit negotiations are underway at the same time and the Chief Minister of Gibraltar met the Spanish Foreign Minister alone.

  6. go up for air when you're in the eye of the storm
    and be surprised that you suffer consequences when you're surrounded by the storm again
    hmm

  9. Their missing the point that it’s spiked again in Spain and those people are moaning because they now have to go isolate for two weeks. Why are they rushing to go on holiday in the first place? What did they expect?

  10. How many do you think will self isolate for the two weeks? get real Boris, no way everyone will do it, that's the only guarantee you will get out of this. ticking time bomb is what you created and when it goes off it will be a big one.

  12. ALL YOU GUYS PLEASE DON'T TRAVEL, STAY AT HOME FOR A WHILE BECAUSE THE VIRUS WILL BE HERE FOR A LONG TIME. LEAVING YOUR HOUSE IS CONSIDERING TRAVELLING.
    BOOK ONLINE FOR YOUR GROCERIES AND STAY HOME BECAUSE THE VIRUS IS MORE DEADLY IN THE WINTER TIMES WITH THE FLU.
    ANY ONE THAT LEAVES THEIR HOUSE IS A SELFISH PERSON PUTTING OTHER PERSON AT RISK. STAY HOME FROM NOW ON. DONT LEAVE YOUR HOUSE..
    YOU GOT THAT ….NO BUS OR TRAIN TO BE USED AND NOT TO LEAVE YOUR HOUSE AT ALL ITS CONSIDERED TRAVELLING.

  13. Guys.. I am supposed to be going to Alicante from Manchester airport on the 9th August. Do you think that in 2 weeks time they might drop the restrictions or make it local lockdowns like there is here? Please, me and my family are worried. Anyone’s opinion? I am going with Ryanair and the flights aren’t cancelled for now 🥺

  14. I truly don’t blame Spain’s decisions as they need to think of their own country’s future why not impose a full out quarantine on all summer activities as in Canada should be doing not opening up all areas. Look at how many people have violated the social restrictions and got many ill in the process

  15. You guys shouldn't even be travelling for vacations regardless. Clearly you dont give a fudge about your health and the people around you so dont know why you guys are mad.
