BRITS have been forced to cancel their holidays after they were incorrectly told they didn't have to be vaccinated to travel to Spain.

Yesterday, the Spanish tourist board were forced to U-turn after claiming tourists who hadn't been vaccinated could enter the country with just a negative Covid test.

However, just hours after they announced it, they said that this is not true, and that vaccinated Brits can only travel to Spain if they have proof of recovery.

Yet lots of families booked flights between this time, meaning they have been forced to cancel them.

Twitter user Angela said: "My son booked a holiday to tenerife a couple of hours ago. Can't believe there has been a u turn. £1800 paid."

Another woman who bought flights with Ryanair wrote: "I booked flights less than 24 hours ago to Spain who have now done a U turn on their covid rules – can these be cancelled and refunded considering the time frame of booking?"

Someone else said: "Had booked a holiday for later this month, great now have to cancel it thanks."

One man wrote: "Thanks to the original message I decided to book a trip and non refundable hotel stay as well. Just woke up to this message that restrictive travel is still in place. Damn!"

Only those aged between 12 and 17 who are unvaccinated can enter the country with just a Covid test, with everyone else needing a Proof of Recovery certificate.

Vaccinated Brits can enter by showing just showing proof of vaccination, although will need a booster if their second jab was more than 270 days ago.

Yet Brits hoping to leave the UK travel chaos are facing having their Spanish holidays ruined due to the huge storms sweeping the country.

Beach bar owners have said their Easter hopes have been ruined following the damage done on the back of storms over recent weeks which had already left resorts with repair bills running into hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Miguel Muncharaz, manager at iconic Marbella beach bar and restaurant Trocadero Playa, admitted: “This last storm has devastated this place. Only the structure is left.

“It’s a disaster. There’s no way we’ll be able to get everything back to the way it was before Easter.”

And UK holidaymakers are being warned to expect travel chaos for months after families were stuck in huge queues at Manchester Airport.
