New restrictions

Any comments on the new restrictions on going out and about to bars and restaurants? Owners and customers adhering to new rules? Is there much checking by GNR? Just asking.

Re: Faro Airport

Think its a matter of luck as comments on other social media forums suggest there are problems on arrival and departure, especially at Passport Control.

Re: August holiday in Carvoeiro

A friend just back from CVO. Intermarche very good with control measures, comment from my friend was much better than some UK supermarkets.

Re: Refunds from BA

Section 75, Consumer Credit Act 1974, credit card (not debit card) provider has equal liability as the service provider if there is a breach of contract.
We had flights booked for 1 and 8 June. Refunded by EasyJet, hoping late summer and winter visits.

The EU announced it would bring in a ban on travelling on people travelling in and out or within the bloc “for an initial period of 30 days” which could be prolonged. Not sure when being introduced but except sooner rather than later. :(
