British holidaymakers have today cancelled their summer breaks abroad and European beaches are empty as Boris Johnson was accused of bankrupting the UK's travel industry and 'destroying' customer confidence by pursuing an Australia-inspired 10-day hotel quarantine system.
Mr Johnson is expected to sign off on plans this evening to divert travellers entering the UK from high-risk Covid countries into hotels to stop new mutant strains of coronavirus like the ones from Brazil and South Africa entering the UK.
The PM wants to force travellers entering the UK into quarantine hotels for ten days where guests will change the sheets, empty the bins and be fed airline-style food three times a day while paying £1,500 for the privilege.
It came as Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi said it was 'too early' to book a summer holiday abroad - but some anxious Britons took to social media to admit the warning came too late, with some having bought flights for as early as the half-term holidays in mid-February.
Paul Charles, chief executive of travel company The PC Agency, said: 'This is destroying confidence among holidaymakers. People are not booking summer holidays because they don't believe there is an end game which will see these blanket measures removed.
