My family have a holiday booked for mid-July. It’s a holiday cottage in the North-East near Morpeth. When this whole coronavirus thing started we hoped life may return to normal by then (and still do), but as time goes on we’re starting to get a bit worried. We’re unsure what to do.
Our options are:
1) Do nothing – wait and see and respond accordingly.
2) Ask to postpone the booking – Although this will be unlikely. Everyone will be doing this and the place is popular so chances are it’s already fully booked for later in summer.
3) Ask for a refund and cancel entirely – We really hope it doesn’t come to this, but at the same time we’d rather do this then worry about it until July. We have a good relationship with the owner so we’re confident we’ll get a refund.
What do you all recommend? The Government have said just assume all holidays are cancelled but does that apply to domestic holidays, and until when? If it seems likely that social distancing measures are still in place by June then I suppose we have no choice but to cancel.
