With 2021 well and truly underway and the recent cold weather, many of us are hoping that we might be able to get away for a few days at some point this year.

This week, Health Secretary Matt Hancock confirmed that UK residents returning from red list countries will have to quarantine in assigned hotel rooms, which could lead to many avoiding international travel.

While travel in the UK is still restricted, people will now still be holding out hope for the chance to visit their favourite holiday parks.

It’s possible that once travel restrictions are lifted, holiday parks like Haven, Center Parcs, Pontins and more will see a rush of visitors, depending on what the government's 'roadmap out of lockdown' looks like when it's announced this month.

“We will continue to monitor government announcements closely and will be ready to welcome our guests back when the time is right and with all the appropriate measures in place.”

Those impacted by the extended closure will be contacted by the company with instructions on how to cancel activities and restaurant bookings and how to reschedule with a discount to the value of £100 or cancel with a full refund.

Pontins

Pontins has made the decision to delay the reopening of its parks until the end of March 2021.

In an update on its website, Pontins wrote: “Due to the government’s recent announcement we are incredibly saddened and naturally disappointed to announce that we will be delaying the re-opening of all our holiday parks.

“As always the health and safety of our guests and staff will remain our main priority and these are the actions we unfortunately need to take.

“We are hopeful for better times and we look forward to welcoming you back to our Parks at the end of March 2021.

“Due to the high volume of enquiries and limited resources we will be in touch with anyone affected as soon as we can so please bear with us.

“We would like to thank our guests for their continued support throughout these unprecedented times and we hope to see everyone again very soon!”

Haven is due to reopen in mid-March and is now taking bookings for spring 2021, with prices starting from £49.

The holiday park has introduced a Coronavirus Book with Confidence Guarantee, which means customers who are self isolating, are affected by new government restrictions or just can’t make it to their trip will get a full refund, not questions asked.

According to the Haven Holidays website, 2021 breaks will be “dependent on the Government guidelines nearer the time of re-opening”.

Butlin’s

According to the Butlin’s website, the holiday parks remain closed until March 14, due to “uncertainty around when the current restrictions will be lifted”.

A note on the website said: “Due to the uncertainty around when we can reopen and how long it will take to get our resorts ready to welcome guests back, we’re sad to say we will be extending our closure to the 14th March.”
