Travel Weekly has created a Restart & Recovery Hub with information from a range of destinations and trade-friendly suppliers on how they are reopening to travel.

The hub will launch next week with updates from partner tourist boards, airlines and operators. It will include details of planned dates for reopening borders and resuming flights, along with essential information such as requirements for testing, quarantine or wearing face masks, and photos or videos showing what customers can expect on holiday.

Lucy Huxley, editor-in-chief of Travel Weekly, said: “After months of travel being effectively at a standstill, the lifting of the UK government quarantine for certain destinations and the reopening of some countries’ borders to British tourists has felt like a huge step forward.

“Yet agents still face a tough road ahead, with ever-changing advice and complex entry requirements that vary by destination.

“We hope our Restart & Recovery Hub will help our readers navigate this challenging time by bringing together up-to-date information straight from the suppliers and destinations themselves so you can feel confident in what you’re selling and reassure your customers.”

The hub, which will be hosted on travelweekly.co.uk, forms part of Travel Weekly’s Roadmap to Recovery focus, giving the trade the tools to restart sales and rebuild their businesses.

Tony Smyth, senior vice-president of iFree Group, headline sponsor of the hub, said: “In a world facing many challenges, shifting sentiment and heightened security, there will always be some constant convictions we embrace: safety, security and well-being. That is why we are proud to sponsor Travel Weekly’s Restart & Recovery Hub.

“We are prioritising our focus to concentrate on new initiatives to protect and serve the travelling public and to promote and support travel industry stakeholders.”
