Brit couple share post-lockdown Ibiza holiday experience with few places open

A Brit couple have revealed what it’s like to fly abroad for a holiday since travel restrictions have been lifted.

Sam and Scott Finch are currently in Ibiza after flying out on July 16 from Manchester Airport with Jet2.

The couple from Northwich, Cheshire, decided to book a holiday “after four months of hard work’, reports the M.E.N.

The couple say they had reservations about going away

They have been staying in a hotel in Playa d’en Bossa on the island, which they say is “fantastic.”

And Mrs Finch says the cost of the trip hasn’t shot up from what they would usually pay.

Here’s their holiday experience from start to finish.

Manchester Airport

Mrs Finch said: “The airport was really quiet and eerie. Very few shops were open in Terminal 1 and there was nowhere really to eat.

“Queues were minimal.”

The flight

“We flew with Jet2 and masks were worn throughout the flight.

“There was no queuing allowed in aisles and the crew were on hand to help if there were any queries.

“It was strange to have so many people in one space but everyone adhered to the rules and it was a pleasant flight.” 

The hotel

“From the moment we booked information was emailed
to us by Jet2 of what to expect.



The couple say they’ve been impressed by the safe practices put in place

“Upon arrival at the hotel everything was confirmed, where masks were mandatory, where sanitising stations were, what was expected whilst dining and social distancing.

“There are very clear protocols in place.”

She continued: “Sanitising stations are all over the hotel for use.

“Disposable gloves are available at meal times for getting drinks etc.”

“Masks are only required in shops or hotel common areas.

“It does make you feel very warm when wearing it in this heat and I can’t see it being comfortable for those with respiratory issues such as asthma, or the elderly.”

“It does make you feel very warm when wearing it in this heat and I can’t see it being comfortable for those with respiratory issues such as asthma, or the elderly.”

“It’s very quiet. Very few places are open. It seems that it will be opening up more from August 1.

“It’s been lovely being so quiet.

“Beaches here are very large and therefore social distancing for us was easy.

“However that might change as more visitors arrive. The sea
was very busy. Lots of boats out there.”

Mrs Finch said the couple did have a lot of reservations before travelling.

But that the holiday exceeded their expectations.

She said: “We were nervous, so just my husband and I came.

“However we have had a wonderful time and felt really safe and looked after.”
