Hello Caz

Please bear in mind COVID19 restrictions have been relaxed but it has not gone away, there could be flare ups and restrictions imposed again.

At the moment there is far more choice and availability of accommodation than flights. Even if you get flight reservations it would be wise to seek a full refund cancellation policy on any accommodation booked and use a credit card that has charge back.

Travel insurance has now been abandoned by the insurance industry as there is too greater risk of them having to put their hands in their pockets.

Contact the owner of the accommodation and give them approximate dates, within a few days and ask them to hold them for you until you secure the flights and then go back with the exact dates.

I don't disagree with the advice already given but there are thousands upon thousands of empty apartments with owners sitting on lost bookings so you will not have any problems getting accommodation. I would book your flights first then look for an apartment booking that has flexible cancellation policies.

Most online booking portals like Booking.com and Homeaway are encouraging property owners to be extremely flexible with bookers.

I think by September thing "might" have settled down a bit. Hope this helps.

Hi Ramalamadingdong.

I’m afraid your comment regarding travel insurance is not accurate. My very well known insurer has confirmed cover, to include COVID-19. I’ve not checked beyond that, but would guess that for it to be valid, it would need FCO to move beyond “all but essential” advice  🤪🥂
