Travellers coming from Spain have expressed their frustration in the short-notice quarantine requirements.
Joe Allen, a TV producer from London, told the PA news service:”We waited for the proper time and that I specifically waited for the quarantine to have been raised from Spain, and that I certainly would not have gone with a quarantine.
“We sort of resigned ourselves actually fairly quickly there was nothing we can do about it, we only need to stick to the rules and we get this, but I believe we are all disappointed.”
Laura Wood, 41, by Oxfordshire, flew from Gatwick to Spain’s Costa Blanca with her loved ones to get a last-minute vacation, also returning Sunday, soon after the steps took effect.
She told PA:”It was a small last-minute disappointment towards the conclusion of the vacation but we are likely to get on with it. There needs to be a jolt, I think, and we’re on the unfortunate side of it”
Mrs Wood stated she’d undergone some”haughty” answers from folks in the home and online following the measures were declared.
“I think that it works both ways; ” I do not think people can whine about the quarantine always because we knew we’re taking risks, but I believe people’s joy in other people’s misfortune is somewhat sad.”
Sophia Fadil, from Brighton, 32, functions in retail after being made redundant during lockdown from her job in the travel business, and is currently on vacation in the Alicante area with her spouse, who’s a nurse, and her five-year-old young child.
She stated the steps are a”slap in the face” for the travel market. “It is just a very rubbish scenario as I sort of feel it is 1 step forward and two steps back when it concerns the travel business,” she explained.
“I probably would not have travelled here had I known this beforehand, so in ways I am kind of happy I am already here.
“I feel that was ridiculous that the Government eventually confirmed it before it was executed so that did not give anyone enough time to journey home if they had to.”
