We all know that travel has been a strange thing in the last two years. During 2021, we are seeing a great resurgence. Hope these tips help as you plan travel for 2021 and 2022:
1. Choose flexible fares and booking options. Travel guidelines and restrictions can change without warning, so pay a little extra for the flexibility to change your plans if needed!
2. Stay up-to-date on travel guidelines and restrictions. It is important to stay current on any documents or testing required to board an airplane or a ship. For example, the US is still requiring testing to return to the US after being out of the country
3.Check in on your flights and get airline updates. As the airlines continue to tweak their schedules and add flights as countries open, I am seeing lots of changes on schedules. Pay attention and sign up for an airlines app to receive notifications of any changes!
4. Dream big and begin planning now for any 2022 trips. Demand will be high and prices seem to be lower the earlier you book. You also have more choices on flights, accommodations and staterooms depending on what you need. Read about possible destinations so you will be prepared when we work together on a trip.
5. Take care of small details now. Renew that passport…think six months beyond the travel dates you anticipate. Update your luggage. Get a travel credit card that gives you no international fees and provides travel rewards.
