Sad to report it was like a ghost town yesterday just before mid-day.
Funny thing is, come  two or three miles out of town and it’s much busier, the restaurants all have customers.

Such a shame, we are due to fly out 25 Sept, we were cancelled in May, but who knows!

Yes we had March and June cancelled. As for September as you say who knows. I have my doubts at the moment.

Had March and June cancelled hopefully October and November will be ok .... if not who knows seems a hassle booking and re- booking as much as we love albufeira might just buy a static caravan and have holidays on tap 🤷‍♂️ And do away with abroad holidays . As COVID seems to be not going away anytime soon

Yes Col we started to have some hope, but now a bit like you, not so sure.
A caravan could be the answer but the way local lockdowns are starting the drive may be the only place to park it! 😎😎

I think we will have more luck getting a holiday in the uk this year even with local lockdowns ect going to look at some caravans next weekend with the view to buy , just seems less stress.... booking flights , fluctuating exchange rates and wondering will your flight get cancelled and getting travel insurance 😑 .
So if our october trip doesn't go ahead it could be thank you and goodbye Albufeira its been a good 10 + years

Agree with all of you. 
I previously said come hell or high water I would get to Albufeira in September. 
But I have just cancelled it due to the uncertainty of it all. Thankfully the hotel were very understanding. Bonus When I rescheduled for next year on Brittany Ferries, For an extra £75.00 I managed to get a Commodore suit but only on the return journey. My only hope is that it all clears up and we can make a long weekend some time in November. But I doubt it.

PS Much as I like to read his daily reports, Where has Cusbar gone. To Brazil from Lisbon? obviously by his description not the UK. Because if he has is he going to isolate for two weeks?
