The novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has slammed European tourist hotspots that traditionally rely on visitors from the UK.
Quarantine regulations banning Brits from cheap trips abroad has meant UK residents are stuck with having 'staycations,' or no vacation at all.

Hotel industry research indicates there was a 532% growth in searches for trips to Scotland, and searches for Cornwall up 325% year-on-year.
The result has been clogged roads, emergency incidents on the most popular stretches of coastline, a rise in travel scams, and price-gouging for hotels.
