FT: TUI payments delay puts survival of Greek hoteliers at risk

The survival of hundreds of Greek businesses in the hospitality industry is at stake after tour operator TUI earlier this month issued a series of contract amendments that require hotel owners to wait until March 2021 for three-quarters of the money due for accommodation booked this year, the Financial Times reported on Thursday.

Covid: People arriving in UK from mainland Greece will need to isolate

People arriving in the UK from mainland Greece will need to self-isolate for two weeks from 04:00 on Saturday, the transport secretary has said.

The rules will not apply to the Greek islands of Corfu, Crete, Rhodes, Kos and Zakynthos, Grant Shapps said.

The Department for Transport (DfT) said data had shown "a consistent increase" in newly reported cases in Greece over the past fortnight, with a 136% increase in new cases to 16,429 between 5 and 12 November from 6,965 between 22 and 29 October.

It added the islands of Corfu, Crete, Rhodes, Zakynthos and Kos had not seen as significant a growth in cases over recent weeks as the rest of Greece and therefore quarantining was not required.
