The balance for my holiday to Algarve (cancelled from March) has to be paid by Friday. Do I cut my losses and cancel? . After discussion with my wife and talking to my travel insurer, I paid the balance. My wife said she was not going to let the covid stop us from making decisions. We are going to learn to live with this virus, partial lockdowns and quarantine so reduce the risks as much as possible and get used to the new "normal".
We both believe we have as much chance catching the virus in the UK where people are not social distancing a lot of the time and have a "couldn't care less attitude" to everybody else.
If there are any problems in the meantime, we will deal with them then.

I hope not, but I may change my attitude after flying but I have got to do it to find out.

I think the main issue would be is your travel insurance still covering you if you travel to an area which the FCO has advised against all but essential travel? Did your travel insurer confirm either way? An EHIC will cover some health care costs, but it isn't a substitute for travel insurance.
