Martin Lewis issues holiday warning to Brits who hope to travel this summer

With temperatures slowly rising, Brits are wondering whether or not a summer holiday is on the cards this year.

According to GOV.UK, the current travel advice states it is against the law to fly abroad without a legally permitted reason to do so.

Now as holiday insurance might be leaving many Brits confused, Martin Lewis has spoken to ITV viewers on This Morning today.

A female caller asked the Money Saving Expert founder if he could recommend travel insurance for a holiday to Greece this year.

He replied: "No is the honest answer, travel insurance is a bespoke product that you need depending on how long you're going for and when you're going.

"What everyone wants is cover in case they can't go due to a lockdown, it doesn't exist, you can get cover if you or a family member get coronavirus so you can't go."

He added: "Some cover in case you've been told to self isolate because you can't go but there is no cover anymore for Covid related lockdowns I'm afraid.

"Go and have a look on various websites to see what the cheapest policy for those specifics are."

Last week, Martin told Brits should only book holidays if they can afford to lose the money.

Speaking on his own show, The Martin Lewis Money Show, the 48-year-old said: "I'd only book now if you can either lose the money or you've got some travel third type of guarantee that you'll get the money back."
