The Dutch government is planning to send 200 people on holiday to Greece for eight days as an experiment to see if tourism is feasible during the pandemic.


About 25,000 people are said to have applied for the free trip and the trial will see travellers enjoy an all-inclusive holiday in Rhodes, costing £342 (€399) per person, BBC reports.


During the experiment, hosted by holiday firm Sunweb, the selected holiday-goers will not be allowed to leave the resort and will be expected to quarantine for ten days when they return back to Holland.

According to RTL Nieuws, those selected must be aged 18-70 and will all be staying at the Mitsis Grand Hotel in Rhodes where they will be the only guests.


In the experiment, which has been given the go-ahead by public health authorities in Holland, they will be allowed to use the hotel’s facilities, including three swimming pools and two restaurants, but won’t be able to head down to the beach or leave the resort.

The country has reportedly been carrying out a number of experiments to understand which events could be safe to resume, including a conference attended by 500 people and a dance party with 1,300 guests.


Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Holland has recorded 1.25million confirmed cases and 16,536 deaths.
