Nicholas Lee, who heads Broadland Travel in North Walsham, said it was safe to book vacations with his company to ensure refunds if Covid meant they were canceled. But he said there were far fewer holidays available this year, so urged people to grab them now.
Current holidays available are:
One week in Turkey, travel May 11th from Gatwick Airport to a five star hotel, all inclusive and with transfers for £ 380 per person.
A self catering holiday in Acharavi, Corfu departing from Gatwick on May 9th for £ 227 per person.
You may also want to see:
A luxury villa for May / June or September / October in Phuket, Thailand including flights, transfers and breakfast for £ 899 per person.
One week bed & breakfast in a small and friendly three star hotel in Aghios Georgios, Corfu, from June 11th from Norwich Airport for £ 493 per person.
And for a winter vacation; four nights to see the Christmas lights in New York departing December 8th with hotel and flights for £ 619 per person.
Mr Lee said, “You pay a little more to use an independent travel agent, but if something goes wrong we have direct access to the tour operator’s staff for a refund.
“In April last year, we received refunds for our customers within two and a half weeks of the vacation cancellation. If you book a vacation by entering your details and pressing a button, this is exactly what happens when an operator refunds you.
“The problem that companies like TUI had was that they just couldn’t do this fast enough because if you made three bookings every thirty seconds, they just couldn’t catch up.
“But the vacation will be sold out. People think more will be moored, but companies like Jet2 have returned leased planes. Big hotel chains in places like Spain won’t be operational until next winter. Once the restrictions ease, prices will go up.” Go up.”
Maldives vacations are currently on sale at a discount, says Rachel Garnish of RG Travel.

Rachel Garnish, who runs Norfolk-based online agency RG Travel, said, “I encourage people that summer continues and that you can safely book.
“I recently booked a vacation for two in the Maldives that was 40 percent off. So it was an all-inclusive five-star hotel with flights for 10 nights for £ 7,500, which would normally have been well over £ 10,000 . “
