Anyone going to Spain in the next few weeks?

Just wondering if anyone in same boat as us! So Florida obviously got cancelled in August and we moved it to next year, and as soon as government announced that you wouldnít need to quarantine coming back from Spain, we booked a Jet 2 flight to Malaga, and an apartment weíve stayed in many times before in La Cala on the Costa del. Starting to become a bit worried about some of the alarmist headlines in the tabloids about re-introducing the quarantine/ removing travel exemption given the current covid spikes in some of the regions.
Hoping that if they re-introduce restrictions they might be regionally based rather than blanket. Be interested to hear the thoughts of any other dibbers due to travel to Spain soon?

Yes ,we are due to go to Manilva mid August .
If we have to quarantine on return we can all do this so thatís ok but it does look worrying .
We cancelled a really big west coast /Hawaii trip so Iíll be gutted if we canít go .
Like you I was seeing it mostly in the rags and nothing on the news so was hoping it was just twaddle as usual.
Will read the news story now .

Yes, but only just .
Itís been in the red tops for the last couple of days which is why I took it with a pinch of salt.
I know you enjoy the doom and gloom though ..

Some holiday providers have said they will not fly to anywhere with quarantine and will cancel any holidays if quarantine is re-imposed at either end of the flight.

A positive for many in that they can claim a refund if they do. Not so much if quarantine wasn't an issue.

As a nurse I believe Iím exempt from quarantine?, dh works from home so theoretically shouldnít be a problem if we had no other option. Incidentally, we arenít booked as a package, so I believe the flight would go ahead even if quarantine re-introduced, and I donít think weíd get a refund on the accommodation either 😩. Keeping everything crossed!

The only thing I can see on the BBC is about nightclubs and late bars closing in Catalonia- nothing about banning travel to Spain or imposing quarantine from what I can see. Will have to see how the next week plays out. Iíll not get the cases out just yet 😩😂!

It's TUI and Jet2 saying they will cancel flights if quarantine is reintroduced.
