Think hardly anyone has booked holidays for this year?

Think again. At least 400,000 overseas holidays are already on Irish travel agents’ books for 2021, most of them between July and September.

That’s not due to any January rush. Yes, some of us may be taking a punt on the likes of Ryanair’s ‘Jab and Go’ sales, but those 400,000 bookings are actually holidays postponed from last year, rescheduled during spring and early summer as we battled the travel chaos of Covid’s first wave.
