Whilst the guidance for areas in local lockdown in England is clear (see our article here), there has been considerable confusion concerning travel to those areas in local lockdown in Wales.
Following extensive discussions with Welsh Government and Visit Wales, the Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT) has now confirmed that the view of Visit Wales is that the restrictions in local lockdown areas apply to both residents of the area and visitors from outside the area.
Visit Wales have confirmed that hotels are allowed to remain open but they can only legally accept customers with a reasonable excuse to stay there. They are therefore required to cancel any holiday bookings that they have previously accepted.
CPT has an ongoing dialogue with Visit Wales in relation to this matter and will keep members updated of any developments. For further information about this issue, or about how to join CPT, contact Backhouse Jones’ Regulatory team on 01254 828300 or firstname.lastname@example.org
