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 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.


Where is the first place you are going to go?

Hi, my name is Lori Judd and I am a CTA Graduate of ICTA (Institute of Certified Travel Agents) as well as a ACC accredit agent of CLIA. I have been in the travel industry for 20 years. I started my travel career at Journey's Travel and later joined the Walt Disney Travel Company, where I booked travel vacations for the company for 10 years. I left WDTC to pursue my dream of opening my own travel agency. Why should you book through me? You will find that am I extremely knowledgeable in my field with first hand experience with many cruise ships and vacation destinations. Plus, unlike most agents who are condemned to book vacations to make their agency a certain amount of revenue (or risk losing their jobs), I am able to book what you actually want vs what the agency needs. This means your vacation needs will never be compromised just because a supplier is offering more commission to book them. Also, since we are affiliated with a larger travel company we are still able to compete with other agencies by giving our clients competitive prices. The bottom line is: Prestige Travel Vacations is more interested in making your dreams come true by booking exactly what your asking for based on your needs and not by what someone else's idea of what a great vacation for you would be just because it will get them more commission. My cruise experiences: DCL- cruised 9 times! Current Platinum Member/ Wonder (twice in '06) and recent 11/2010/ Magic inaugural & Disney Dream -Apr. 2011 RCCL- 5 times! Current Platinum Member. Sailed once in a family suite. Granduer/ Enchantment/ Mariner/ Navigator 'Jan.08 & 2010/ New- Allure May 2012 Carnival- Fantasy/ Miracle and Inspiration 9/17/09. Ship tours incld.: CCL- Legend/ Holland's Veendam /NCL Star Nov.2011/ RCCL Jewel 3/12/12/ CCL Paradise 10/21/12
