From 12th April 21 – My Getaways is open for holiday lets!

After an awful year for the whole world, finally there is light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel and we are able to welcome tourists back to our properties from 12th April 2021.

Since the announcement of the roadmap , we have experienced unprecedented demand for bookings.

So what is happening and when:

From Monday 12th April 2021

  • UK domestic holidays away from home permitted, with self-contained accommodation able to reopen for use by members of the same household
  • Restaurants and pub gardens will be allowed to serve customers sitting outdoors, including alcohol
  • All shops allowed to open
  • Hairdressers, beauty salons and other “close contact services” can reopen, including in people’s homes
  • Children allowed to attend indoor play activities, with up to 15 parents or guardians allowed to join them
  • Zoos, theme parks and drive-in cinemas can reopen including Brighton Pier
  • Weddings attended by up to 15 people can take place

From Monday 17th May 2021

  • Six people or two households can meet indoors
  • Pubs, restaurants and other hospitality venues can seat customers indoors
  • People can meet in groups of up to 30 outdoors
  • Up to 30 people can meet to celebrate weddings or other life events, like christenings
  • The remaining outdoor entertainment, such as outdoor theatres and cinemas can open
  • Indoor entertainment such as museums, theatres, cinemas and children’s play areas can open
  • Performances and large events will be subject to limits though. For indoor events they can be at half capacity or 1,000 people, and outdoors they can be at half capacity or 4,000 people – whichever is lower. For large venues (at least 40,000 capacity) up to 10,000 will be allowed to attend

From Monday 21st June 2021 – FREEDOM DAY

  • All legal limits on social contact will be removed
  • No legal limits on the number of people who can attend weddings, funerals and other life events. From April, the government will run pilots for events such as large weddings, festivals and work conferences. This will help to determine how measures such as enhanced testing might allow large groups to attend without social distancing
  • Nightclubs will be allowed to reopen

Look forward to welcoming you back for fun times this summer!
