My problem is some of my vouchers run out in November this year but it's a lot to risk losing.
I'm in exactly the same position
I'm wondering if it's worth exchanging the vouchers for the hotel.com vouchers (before they expire in Nov) but not booking the hotel yet
Maybe even just exchange the ones that expire in Nov

Now that's a good idea, how long does the hotel voucher last once exchanged ?

12 months by the looks of it
I'm going to do that just for the November ones, I'll wait to see if Quik-Queue is even operating before I book the room

That's another thing I hadn't considered. Thanks for that advice 👍

I'm with you on this. We are hoping for the same. But if we still need to wear them all the time we will.

Nobody knows if this will be case.

I've just booked today. We are lucky enough to use our friends villa so that bit isn't a problem. I booked a FlyDrive with BA paying deposit only. I liked the look of their flexible amendments/cancellation offer. Th price was great too (works out £470 each for the flights - MAN-PHL-MCO depart on 18th July for 20 nights).

I donít think itís negative at all. Itís the realism of the situation we are in and Could still be in next summer. Some people may have not considered that they may still have to wear Face Masks in 100d heat and on a 9 hr flight, in restaurants, shops etc. Doesnít sound much like a fun holiday to me.

If we are still wearing masks in 9/10/11 months time then I dread to think what the intervening time will have been like.
