Holidaymakers face losing thousands of euro on flights and accommodation if they follow medical advice and cancel their trips.

Those who follow chief medical officer Tony Holohan’s call to cancel foreign holidays will not be entitled to a full refund, as foreign travel is not banned under the Government’s Covid-19 measures.
