Impact of COVID-19 on UK travel and tourism – a statement from UKinbound

UKinbound recognises the huge challenges that are currently facing the UK travel and tourism industry (and the travel industry around the world) due to the impact of COVID-19.  These are desperate times for many businesses with increasing numbers of international and domestic visitors cancelling or postponing their trips at very short notice due to factors outside of their control.

It is important that as far as is possible, the industry is as flexible as it can be with each other on cancellation and postponement of tickets and other charges.  History tells us that the way we treat eachother and our visitors now will reap dividends once this crisis is over and ensure that visitors continue to come to our attractions, hotels, restaurants and engage our inbound tour operators.
