The term essentially means, after being cooped up for essentially a year, travelers the world over are now beginning to plan longer, further, and more expensive vacations in retaliation to the unimaginable and lengthy coronavirus quarantines.
Now is the time to break up with Covid-19 and break free from this awful pandemic and start taking steps to take that trip you have been dreaming about for over a year or missed out on completely due to this virus. If your feeling trapped, hang in there the vaccine will be available to everyone in the US by end of June and hopefully even sooner!
The world is slowly recovering, but we will all need to have patients as it does. Traveling for the sake of special events or vacations is starting to take place domestically as more people are vaccinated and their confidence comes back. The rest of the world will follow suit and the international destinations will start to open up.
The demand for travel is going to be overwhelming, as traveler optimism starts to rise. This means waiting to book your coveted trip could cost you money as companies start to see a huge surge in their services and products.
As travel starts to return new travel requirements will probably be imposed, like digital passports to show negative test results and or proof vaccination. Social distancing and mask-wearing may also be a requirement for many months to come.
In 2019 travelers were more worried about crime as the leading travel safety concern. But this has certainly changed since the pandemic and it has pushed that fear to the bottom of the list along with getting sick (from something other than COVID-19), accidents, civil unrest/terrorism, lost luggage, robbery, nuclear disaster, and cybercrime.
One thing the pandemic has shown us is that things can change on a dime. Be flexible, book now while there may still be some deals to be had, and talk to a travel professional like the certified professionals at www.PrestigeTravelVacations.com to make sure you are aware of any restrictions that may be in place or changes that may have happened since you last visited your favorite destination.
