    A lot of people will be urgently consulting the French government’s list of what constitutes a compelling reason for coming to France. And a lot of people are going to be disappointed.
    If you have booked a skiing holiday, for example, you will not be able to come. That’s clear - all holidaying is out.
    If you are a UK citizen wishing to spend Christmas with your retired parents who live in France, it doesn’t look good either. The list appears to state that the only Britons allowed in are those with registered homes in France, plus transport workers and some students.
    Without question, the end-of-year plans of many families will be badly affected, and travel companies are predicting a wave of cancellations.
    In fact, Alpine resorts say a lot of British skiers have already cancelled, because they foresaw there would be difficulties.
    With travel to the UK from France already hit by tough restrictions decreed from London (self-isolation till results of compulsory PCR test), the two countries feel more apart than ever

Does not make sense. France is probably worse, they just do not sequence to the same degree as the UK (however both sequence very little).

I think this post Friday evening on snowheads.com by Steve Angus, a Brit ski instructor in Val D'Isere sums the situation up:-

"€27,000

Rather cryptic start but that is the amount in bookings cancelled / refunded this afternoon alone our office had to deal with this afternoon alone.. in other words that is about 10% of the whole ski school turnover in Val.... with circa 10 coaches full time on the mountain that means equivalent of one whole persons turnover gone in an afternoon of credit card shipping / bank transferring back! Wow - scary. This s**t is real!"
