Cancellation policies of TUI, Ryanair, easyJet, BA and Jet2
With summer upon us and countries dropping or relaxing their coronavirus travel rules, many Britons will be on the wane in the coming months. Many holidaymakers are eager to return to their favorite destinations, including Spain and Turkey, for guaranteed sunshine and a change of scenery.
But many passengers have faced delays and cancellations in recent weeks as the industry grapples with increased flight demand and staff shortages. UK airports have seen long queues, while some travelers have had their flights canceled altogether.
There are growing concerns about how the industry will cope over the summer and fears that there will be more cancellations and delays. If you’ve booked a vacation, you may be considering your options and thinking about canceling it yourself to avoid further disappointment and disruption.
