The British are trying to book a vacation to Spain this summer after it was announced that a “green corridor” could be set up for vaccinated travelers. The booking boom was sparked by comments from Spanish Tourism Minister Fernando Valdés, who confirmed earlier this week that Spain and the UK are in “discussions” over the possible lifting of travel restrictions for those who have been vaccinated against Covid for as long as it has been in the next few months there is no collective EU decision on vaccination passports. With the UK government also announced its roadmap for the lockdown last week and international travel won’t be possible until May 17 at the earliest, Spanish vacation companies are now seeing a surge in demand from UK customers looking to fly south for the summer. One hotel in Ibiza, the Nobu Hotel on Talamanca Beach, has already seen a weekly increase in bookings of 250%, while the Puente Romano Beach Resort in Marbella had a 50% occupancy rate throughout August. Vacation in villas is also very popular. One rental company, The Thinking Traveler, reports a 100% increase in inquiries compared to this time last year and a triple increase from last week. The airlines have also experienced an upswing in the last week thanks to renewed passenger confidence: EasyJet sales for June, July and August have more than quadrupled in the last few days, while reservations for TUI in Spain, Greece and Turkey by 600 % have increased.
