The ‘Escape Pass’ will let British holidaymakers spend up to 14 days on a ‘mystery’ Caribbean island. All travellers have to do is choose the length of their stay (one week or two), the hotel rating and flight class. Virgin staff will handle the rest and you’ll find out where you’re going two weeks before you leave. Exciting, right?
Potential destinations currently include Barbados, Grenada, Antigua and Tobago. Other islands, such as Jamaica, will likely join them once they are added to the UK’s list of travel corridors – meaning you don’t have to quarantine on your return home.
Of course, once everything is booked and you know where you going, there’s always the possibility the UK government may still take your particular destination off the ‘corridor’ list before your flight. The good news is that if a quarantine is introduced on either side before you leave, Virgin says you’ll get a full refund within 14 days.
If new travel restrictions are reintroduced while you’re actually out there, then there’s not much you can do about it – but you’d be pretty unlucky, as Virgin says it will choose destinations that are unlikely to be removed.
