Planning Your Travel During COVID times

Planning Your Travel During COVID times

August 19, 2021

One thing we have continued to learn as we navigate these times, is that choosing to travel is a risk that clients have to decide for themselves. One of my clients put it perfectly this week, she said “If you aren’t willing to take the risk that something could go wrong or your trip could be cancelled or disrupted, then perhaps you wait to travel.”

For many people, taking a trip is something they aren’t willing to wait for, while others may not want to plan now and deal with uncertainty. We are here to help and explain all the current policies and border openings.

Please see our list of important considerations for travel during COVID times.

Call us to find out the latest border openings and what destinations might be right for you.

The end of 2020 seemed for far away, but here we are! As we look forward to planning travel for 2021 and 2022, we can finally take an optimistic approach to future vacations. Thanks to the vaccines coming our way and variety of protocols set up around the globe, we are beginning to see some light.

We will continue to monitor regulations and country border openings, including testing and other requirements for entering those countries.

You will want the expertise of a travel designer to help you navigate the entire process, including planning your itinerary, understanding payments and policies, preparing for potential changes, and knowing about your travel insurance options. We are here for you!

Here’s to the road back to travel and a brighter year ahead!

We know that thinking about travel during uncertain times means more questions than answers. As the world slowly starts to open, know that we will be a resource for you regarding travel both in the short and long term.

We have shifted gears to create unique adventures closer to home for those clients who would prefer to stay in the US and still travel in 2020. We will continue to monitor state quarantine regulations and country border openings, including test requirements to enter some of those countries. See our links below for up-to-date openings of our top destinations.

Important to note that we have also done our best to negotiate flexible payment terms and deposits, where possible. Please know that if you do want to make a trip happen, be it last minute or well in advance, we can handle it.

For many of the destinations we work with, it’s not uncommon to plan trips 18 months in advance. We want you to feel comfortable planning the dream and knowing that we are here to help you understand how to best plan and protect your vacation investment.

For our clients who have credits on file from affected 2020 trips, please know that you are our priority as the borders of our beloved Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Cook Islands reopen. We can’t wait to help you fulfill those dream vacations and we are eternally grateful for your support and patience.

We hope you enjoy our new website and our enhanced brand image and hope it will serve as an inspiration to keep believing in the magic of travel!

Yours in adventure,

Roseann Iovine
