Petition HM Government to outline a plan to Save Future Travel
HMG should consider the Save Future Travel Coalition plan to support businesses and protect jobs:
• Fully regionalise quarantine
• Introduce testing
• Review the Job Support Scheme
• Offer grants for SMEs, and help businesses that missed out on previous support
• APD relief for summer 2021
Measures to control COVID-19 have dented confidence in travel and delayed recovery. However, while many travel businesses remain viable, the Winter Economy Plan does not do enough to support businesses or save jobs. The UK's travel industry is world-leading - in ordinary times supporting over 100 million trips annually (inbound and outbound), with an economic contribution of more than £60bn, and employing close to 1m people. The Government must act to restart travel and provide tailored support.
