‘Safe’ or ‘low risk’ countries, such as Portugal, Spain and Thailand have seen a huge surge in visitors of late and as such, their rates have skyrocketed. As a result, accommodation is at a premium.

If you are unsure where you can safely holiday this summer, be sure and refer to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office before booking your trip.
