As long as they put us in a hotel with a good restaurant/bar and internet, that will suit me fine! :)
As long as there are enough hotels still in business for you to quarantine in when/if you return, especially back here in the UK 🤞

May get to the point where you have to stay where you're told to and no luxury of choice.

I think 2cv is right - I am constantly plagued by e-mails from hotels telling me of their latest bargains (same goes for airlines). They seem desperate for business.

They are. Which is why I'm saying that we don't yet know what is round the corner with the continuation of this virus.
The vaccines are one thing, but the ability for many hospitality businesses in the UK to ride out the storm longer term is quite another.

It all depends on how quickly things can get turned around.

Good to stay optimistic though 👍 :)

I was responding to REC's post about staying for a few months and QFour's query about not being able to do more than 90 days.
I understood ithat if you were already in EU at end of transition you can stay as long as you want.
However I can't now find anything to confirm that

Afraid not - we are booked on a ferry at the end of March because the 90 day rule kicked in on January 1st. What may be misleading you is that, in the event of no-deal, EHIC would be honoured for the length of your stay provided you arrived before January 1st. Now they have got a deal (of sorts!) EHIC is valid for all up until the expiry date.

I would imagine the change in legislation will catch up with everyone eventually, regardless of before/after transition period?

Only exception I can rationally think of for being able to do more than 90 days would be if you have residency status in the country you are staying in?

That was probably it - there was so much going on in the last few weeks.

That is the situation for @REC

Trouble with whatever travel problems people may or may not have you wont know till the end of march anyway - easier if you have no additional responsibilities - 90 day insurance green card which some may have

Surprisingly, my green card has no time limit on it. They knew we would be longer than 90 days abroad. Maybe if you are legitimate the insurance is too?

We took insurance which covers us for 180 daysin EU and, when I rang I gave the dates we were booked for and also said covid might delay our return. No mention from them of the 90 days rule. We can stay with our van for 180 days then would have to matriculate it to be legal here.

Some countries (e g. New Zealand) are using the hotels for " managed isolation" seems like a better idea than leaving people on trust. Even if the occupants pay a minimal amount, hotels are in business and isolation is completed properly.
The daughter and son in law of some friends have just gone to Australia with their 2 year old for his work.
They were escorted to their quarantine hotel by the police and can expect ad hoc checks for the next couple of weeks.
No subsidy from the state for the accommodation - I think that if they'd had a house to go to they could have used that.
Maybe we should have done something similar?

A friend of mine who has dual citizenship went to NZ in autumn, he had to go into a managed isolation hotel for couple of weeks. He will come back once CV-19 has receded a bit, maybe next summer.
