It's been covered a few times but the main points are it's brilliant but expensive.

Bring your own bikes, don't eat out too often and spend a lot of time in the pool which is brilliant anyway.

Jet2 cancelling flights and holidays to Spain including Canary Islands this morning. Does this effect anyone? I am due to go to Lanzarote 1st week of June with the wife and kids. Havenít a clue what way this leaves me now or even what to do. Cancel and lose the deposit or wait and see?

I think if airlines cancel flights you are entitled to a refund or reschedule.

Wife was due to fly to the canarys with her friends today but decided it was best not to. Not all the friends agreed and some have went on ahead. Jet2 cancelled all their flights but they had a package that included easyJet flights. They go ahead. Has to take the financial hit

Both my kids hockey tour with school cancelled, doubt there will be refund but hey they are (so far) healthy!

Not expecting any refunds, not that Iím worried about that, just would have preferred that had the trip or it was deferred to a later date
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Good stuff. I don't think anybody will be on holidays this summer - even in Ireland.

Update on this one is that the mates sat on a plane at the airport for about 3 hours before being told it is now cancelled. Hopefully a refund or deferral will follow.

Flew back from Salzburg with Jet2.com this morning.  Got a text from them yesterday, saying everything would be going on time. All trains from Austria into Italy were suspended earlier in the week but, other than that, no real difficulties in travelling round Austria all week & into Munich yesterday.

Just cancelled trip to France for start of July

Meant to go to Salou end of May Iím cancelling f**k all yet until I can get my money back on it!

Not really worried to be honest what will be will be but until I can get the go ahead Iím getting money back Iím not changing anything. If Spain is free to travel to at that time Iíll make a call as to whether itís safe for us to go or not but no point guessing at this stage with so much money involved!
