Luckily, operators are refunding all customers who have had their plans cancelled.
In many cases, holidaymakers also have the option to reschedule their travel to a later date if they wish.
What are the latest package holiday updates from easyJet holidays, Jet2 holidays, TUI, British Airways, Thomas Cook and Virgin Atlantic?
easyJet holidays made the decision to cancel package holiday plans up to and including March 24 following the announcement of a third national lockdown.
The package holiday provider has not yet said if any further cancellations are to be expected.
Customers who are impacted by holiday cancellations will be contacted directly by easyJet holidays.
They will be provided with the option to rebook their holiday for a new date and destination or accept an easyJet holidays credit to be used in the future. There is also the option to claim a full cash refund.
The holiday firm says it is aiming to process these in “an average of 12 days”.
In a statement, Matt Callaghan, easyJet holidays customer director said: “We know this news will be disappointing. But we want to give our customers as much flexibility and choice as possible so they can decide what is best for them.
“We’re really proud that, where we’ve needed to cancel holidays, we’ve been able to process refunds in an average of 12 days. We’ll continue to do the right thing for customers.
“And for any customers wanting to change their holiday or make a new booking, we’ve got holidays on sale all the way through to March 2022.
“We know there is light at the end of the tunnel with the vaccine. We can’t wait to take people on well-deserved holidays just as soon as it’s possible for us to do so.”
