Holidays and trips have been cancelled across the board since the coronavirus pandemic began.
And as the UK continues to be in the grip of a lockdown, many summer holidays that were planned are now looking doubtful.
But when will we be able to travel abroad again?
Here is a round-up of the current advice and travel information.
Is it safe to book holidays?
At the moment, the Government is asking people to avoid all non-essential travel indefinitely and no date has been fixed for when trips can start again.
Experts and tour operators are also unable to say when travel will resume, especially as the coronavirus situation is fast changing.
During an interview with the BBC last week, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said he wouldn’t be “booking a summer holiday at this point|”.
Both Jet2 and Ryanair have said publicly they hope to restart flights in June, while easyJet has launched holidays for late 2020.
Experts have said that a trip in the next three months could be on the cards, although this is likely to be for UK holidays only.
A spokesperson for Aito, the Association of Independent Tour Operators, told the Express: “If luck is on our side, then three months hence should see things calm down on the virus front.
“It’s likely that the first travellers within the UK will venture out again to explore their own country at the traditional start of the summer season.”
The situation may be different in other countries, with destinations across Europe also on lockdown.
Meanwhile, Mark Hall, director of product at TUI UK, told Sun Online Travel that trips abroad are likely to be much later in the year, around autumn and winter time.
It is also worth booking package holidays, as they are ATOL-protected – meaning you are covered if the holiday does not go ahead by a refund or credit note.
On Monday, French President Emmanuel Macron announced that the country’s lockdown would be extended to May 11.
Tourists are not currently able to enter the country if their reason for travel is a holiday.
But there is some light at the end of the tunnel for trips in late summer, says The Sun.
The Tour de France has been postponed until August, meaning travelling around the country could be on the agenda by then.
However, the country has also reported the highest number of coronavirus deaths in one day of 1,438 so the peak is yet to have hit.
Spain is beginning to lift lockdown measures, with non-essential industry workers such as manufacturing able to return to work.
While the rest of the country remains indoors, coronavirus cases are slowing with the lowest daily growth recently reported, and normal life for citizens could begin to return by the end of the month.
A tourist firm in Benidorm said a spike in bookings for August and September is good news for the industry.
President of Benidorm’s British Businesses Association, Karen Maling Cowles, said: “I don’t personally think that we’re going to start recovering from this until June or July and even that’s maybe early.
“But British tourism I don’t see happening until September. Because the UK is still so far behind Spain and until you have it contained, people won’t be allowed to come and have their week in Benidorm.”
Some of the Greek islands, including Santorini, Crete and Kos, are yet to report any cases of coronavirus.
Despite this, tourism is not expected to return to the country for months, with the flight ban being extended until May 15.
The lockdown measures could ease as soon as next month, with normality by mid-May, according to local media, and all measures lifted by July if the virus continues to slow.
