Sam Lowe, of the Centre for European Reform think tank, is likewise optimistic that the quarantine exemptions will help the tourism industry. “All these quarantines will lead to reduced tourism on aggregate but it could, if not boost tourism between France and the UK, see France become a relatively more popular destination,” he said.

“The option becomes, for everyone in the UK, that you either have to go to Cornwall or France, whereas before you had France, Greece and Spain.”

However, he noted: “If there’s nothing to do there, you can’t expect much of a pull in either direction.”
