The Scottish Government announced an extension of the emergency period. During this time, government rules require everyone providing holiday accommodation in Scotland to close, except for limited types of stays.

The temporary blocks in calendars will be extended to new bookings that start on or before 31 May 2020. 

This week, the UK Government announced an extension of the emergency period. During this time, government rules require everyone providing holiday accommodation in the UK to close, except for very limited types of stays.

The temporary blocks in calendars will be extended to new UK bookings that start on or before 9 May 2020. We will review these temporary measures by 9 May 2020 and lift them as soon as we can, and keep you informed.

 

The First Minister of the Scottish Government also stated that tourism businesses “should not be accepting visitors”

On 26 March, the government passed legislation ordering everyone providing holiday accommodation in Scotland to close for commercial use as quickly as is safely possible. The rules only allow you to host specific types of guests, and in particular circumstances. You can read the exclusions in full here

On 23 March, the UK Government directed that people must stay at home apart from essential travel or they may face penalties. This came into effect immediately and includes all non-essential travel within the UK. The UK Government has also issued further guidance to businesses and premises to close, which covers accommodation businesses.

This step follows the advice issued by the UK Government on 17 March, advising against all non-essential overseas travel, for an initial period of 30 days. For the latest travel advice from the UK Government, visit their website. Please read this guidance and consider how it applies to your personal circumstances.

Let's do our part to keep everyone safe.
