    Yes also (European Union) politics indeed! For example Bulgaria with a low covid rate is allowing the Netherlands in from 15 june but Greece is not allowing it without quarantaine etc.
    People that booked through tourists organitations need to pay up weeks in advance but do not know if they will travel in Europe and Greece too. And if they cancel you only get a voucher for now. Tourists that want to spend money and spend on holidays are loosing their minds here on social media nobody cares.Days off are not something all bosses want and you cant change days easily during corona time. Too bad normal numbercitizens need to experience stress because of politics in Europe and outside!

    The virus problem is extremely exaggerated. Greece has no reason to make travel impossible. If the one day quarantine and medical test papers at entry are still mandatory we will choose Croatia, Italy, Hungary, France or any other countries without such hassle. Only deadly ill people past away in Hungary. In the end, we have less deaths than during a usual flu season.

    Northern Ireland is part of the U.K. but we have a separate Government, we have not been hit hard by the virus, although there are over 500 deaths 46 % of theses were in care homes. We now have been locked up for 10 weeks, the last week we have had daily 2, 2 4 4 0 0 deaths.
    Why can’t we fly to Crete on 1st July you are letting China in, it started there and no one has a clue how many died there.

      It is political. Everyone is toadying up to the Chinese, just in case they come up with a vaccine first.
