With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many Brits have been feeling quite apprehensive about booking a holiday.

Now British Airways has announced it will extend its flexible booking policy through to September.

The airline is currently offering a "Book with Confidence" policy which means you can amend your holiday for free.

Customers will also be given the option to cancel their booking to receive a voucher to use at a later date, instead of a cash refund.

And luckily, the policy also applies for journeys through to August 31, 2021, so you can book a holiday for next year without worrying.

However, it is advised to check the current travel situation before you book by visiting the Foreign Travel Advice website.

As well as the flexible booking policy, British Airways has announced out a few other changes to make it easier for holidaymakers.

Deposits start at £75pp when you book a holiday with the final payment date moved to three weeks before travel.
