The foreign office has banned non-essential travel to France, Malta and Netherland due to a rise in coronavirus infections and EasyJet have now cancelled their holidays.
An easyJet spokesperson said: ‘We heard the news from the government on Malta, France and the Netherlands being added to the travel quarantine list and the FCO advice changing to all but essential travel for these countries at the same time as everyone else.
‘Despite another late night announcement, we were able to contact our affected customers very soon afterwards to let them know we have cancelled their holiday and will be processing full refunds as quickly as possible.’
Holidays are cancelled until the end of August where the situation will be reviewed and EasyJet have said they understand people will be disappointed as they were looking forward to a ‘well deserved break’.
From 4am on Saturday, people travelling from these three countries will be required to quarantine for 14 days.
There is currently 160,000 British holiday makers in France who will be rushing to get back before the quarantine kicks in.
