    Why 3? I get 1 going to the US (even then for me, it’s paid by our gvt). But if I’m fully vaccinated, no test required for me on re-entry (Belgium). Are you in the UK?

    I’m almost on the verge of cancelling my September 21st-trip and feel sad about it.

    @Timothy, UK require a test to return plus a test on day 2 even if you’re fully vaccinated. They have a list of approved suppliers and the tests are expensive.

    I know the British/Australian accents get mixed up often in the US, but we're actually miles away from there :D

    They've been shut since the start and intended to be until 2022. I've got some relatives there, and they had problems getting around inside the country earlier this year, even for a funeral.

    Surely better to let the airline cancel, and then you get the full range of options, mate?

    No issues there. Booked KLM, and they offer flexible repayment (in actual money) within a couple of days. Cancelled and got refunded twice already. Great policy by them. Will keep that in mind forever.

    Frustrated here too. Have had a 16 day Sept trip lined up for ages including comps or low weekend rates before Raiders games were announced and now I'm not going to get the benefit of what was (gambling aside ) a very inexpensive base cost for such a long stay

    Next stop for me is Dec so there might be some life left in that

    Just canceled my September trip now. So annoying ...
    Plan was to introduce my nephew to the US and Vegas. We had been looking forward to it and we both are fully vaccinated. But there is no chance now and it is hard to understand.

    Please, please, please:

    Wear your mask and get your shot!
    Let's bring this pandemic finally to its end. That's no fun anymore ...

    I'm not going to cancel my 10th August trip until the minimum 3 days before. I live in hope though its now looking extremely unlikely unless US chooses to make a trial airbridge between US and UK only. 2 weeks is a long time in this game atm.

    I'll be really really pissed off if WSOP Main Event is screwed as out for that on 4th November for 2.5 weeks and i'll also loose all my Diamond plus benefits too at that point.

    CET don't seem to give a s**t about international customers.

    Looks like we've blinked, so will be interesting to see if that's a catalyst.
