Is Haven open?

Haven has closed all of their parks until next month due to coronavirus.

A statement from the park explained: “Our parks are temporarily closed for holidaymakers from 20 March – 16 April 2020.

“We know how disappointing this will be for all those guests who are booked to stay with us during this time but every decision we make, we are doing to ensure the safety and security of our guests, owners and teams as our number one priority.

“We are contacting everyone who has a break booked during this period, but we shall prioritise those who are booked to travel within the next seven days. We would like to thank our guests for their patience whilst we work through this as quickly as we can.”

The parks are remaining open until today, and people with bookings up until April 16 will be able to move them to a different date or get a refund.

The parks will close between March 20 and April 16, with affected guests being contacted

The closures come just 24 hours after Butlins announced that it was closing all three parks until next month, along Center Parcs.

Alton Towers is also to remain closed indefinitely.

Earlier this week, the EU said it would ban all external travel for a month to try to stop the spread of the virus – along with countries around the world, leaving millions stranded.

This weekend, TUI also announced that it was suspending hotel stays, package holidays and cruises until further notice.

The German-based tour company said it was suspending most of its operations and applying for government help in light of the deepening coronavirus crisis.

Travel has decreased sharply as more and more countries apply tough new restrictions to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Italy, Spain and France are all on lockdown in an effort to curb the alarming rise in new coronavirus cases and deaths.

At the weekend, Jet2 ordered planes heading for Spain to perform a dramatic U-turn and announced that it would no longer fly to Lyon, Grenoble, Paris and Nice until at least April 26.
