Local independent travel agent Andy Grayson, of Not Just Travel, will hold the drop-in sessions at the Jam Jar, Victoria Road on Tuesdays and Thursdays 11am until 2pm until further notice.

He aims to help people worried about travel plans in the wake of Coronavirus.

Andy said: “We are all very concerned about the impact Covid-19 is going to have on us all, and one key area is everyone’s travel plans for 2020 and beyond.

“The situation changes daily, sometimes hourly, so I will be holding these pop-up sessions at the Jam Jar to answer any questions people might have.”

Andy, who travelled extensively around the world before joining the Not Just Travel brand, is keen to allay fears people may have and will be able to signpost attendees to a number of contacts and experts.

He added: “No doubt, the next couple of months will be challenging for not just the travel industry but everyone and what people need at this point is reassurance and advice that will help clarify any confusion.

“One thing we know for certain is that the coronavirus situation will pass, and over time things will return to normal where people can start to travel about freely again. In the meantime, if I can help to ease peoples concerns, then that’s what I am happy to do.”
