In a quandry. Cracking deals to be had on the BA sale (Caribbean). Realistically do you think holidays will happen by then?? Are people still booking?

I probably wouldn’t risk October, BA cancelled lots of Caribbean flights in October and then flew back a lot of people early. I’d risk the Summer, but not the colder months.

October is shoulder season. Might be ok. High season is December onwards but prices go up.

I'm optimistic, so I'd say yes. Realistically, most adults in the UK should be vaccinated by autumn (and before that if the hits the more bullish vaccination targets). It also looks like those who have been vaccinated will get some kind of 'vaccination passport' allowing them to travel quite freely. Plus, some Caribbean islands have allowed travellers with negative Covid tests to enter throughout the worst of the pandemic, which will hopefully be over by Oct.
