From what I can see all easyJet flights to Turkey before the 17th of July were cancelled earlier this week, l changed mine to September 2022 for free, even though the new flight was over £300 more expensive than the original one. Seats and luggage were transferred over to it automatically too.
Same here Frankie T. We were very pleased with that outcome but hope our flight for mid September this year goes ahead !

I dont expect that we will get to a holiday this year, I hope to be proved wrong :rolleyes:
It is still looking the same, family health and our Islands closed borders make planning this year, a waste of time. But we would like to get back to Turkey at the first opportunity. As we have saved a few shekels over the outbreak, I think we shall spend more on better flights, maybe travel via Stamboul, have a few days there then down the coast to the Mugla area, 6 weeks or so with a nice hire car sounds just fine at the mo (y) (y)

There was a complaint about it being 19tl at a café in Calis yesterday.
Had a few good nights out in Calis, Bambu, and one with a couple of bikes permanently chained up opposite, however I wouldn't pay 10 TL for Efes these days, well, I might the odd time.

I see the beaches are in full swing Bodrum areas, beach entry free in some if you spend more than 300 tl. Or pay 105 - 750 entry fee +service charge of 13%in some.

Double-jabbed British holidaymakers could be able to go abroad to nearly 170 countries from next month with Vaccine Passports. Those fully vaccinated will show evidence via the NHS app at border controls. They can then travel to Amber list nations WITHOUT having to Isolate upon Return. Portugal, France, Spain, Italy, Greece and the US are among those destinations

Double-Jabbed British holidaymakers could be given the green light to fly to nearly 170 countries from next month under new government plans. Those who are fully vaccinated will provide evidence via the NHS app at border controls and then be able to enjoy trips to amber list nations without having to isolate for 10 days upon returning home. Huge numbers of tourists had to scramble home from Portugal earlier this month in order to beat the quarantine deadline when it was dramatically taken off the green list.


Some 168 destinations are currently on the amber list, including popular holiday spots like Portugal, France, Spain, Italy, Greece and the United States. Ministers are still discussing the plans at this early stage, but Boris Johnson could rubber-stamp them in time for millions of lockdown-weary Britons to jump on flights in July. The idea would see travellers obliged to take several PCR tests on their return, but if they come back negative, they won't have to remain stuck in their homes like under current rules. However, questions may be asked over the Border Force's ability to cope with such a large number of travellers after an incident in April, when travel was largely restricted, which saw a passenger collapse while waiting seven hours in Heathrow's overwhelmed passport control.

Wonder about expats wanting to go to UK. Will theır vaccinations in their expat country be accepted to return?

Another knock for Turkey the EU has not opened holidays to turkey again, and Belgium has cancelled all holidays this summer to turkey. Tui cancelled all holidays to none EU countries for July and August.

I can't see how they can refuse to recognise the same vaccine that they have been giving in the UK. they should be grateful that someone else has paid for it.

I know expats will be able to fly home but wondering if they will have to isolate if they have had two jabs. Rules for holidaymakers and expats can be different.
Thanks for replies above.
