For Those Who Must Travel, The Travel Goddess Lists The Safest Airlines & Hotels

Are you finding it difficult to navigate these travel streets during the time of COVID?  I am a travel professional and it has been difficult for me to keep up with the new twists and turns that have been added over this past year!  New travel entry restrictions and requirements, medical liability forms, PPE requirements, travel insurance that includes COVID-19 coverage…. I mean the list goes on and on.  Unfortunately, travel is being discouraged right now but there are still those that need to travel, whether it is for business, health emergency, family needs or mental health; people still need to conduct life outside of the walls of their homes.  Here is some information to help you travel safely and responsibly.

Airlines have added measures to ensure passenger safety.  Delta and Emirates are real stand outs.  Delta is still adhering to their seat blocking policy!  My clients love it!  Hopefully, the March 2021 end date will be extended.  Emirates has a detailed COVID-19 web page as well as offering personal hygiene kits and temperature checks.

Although we are not exactly out of these Covid woods yet, staying at home and respecting your local stay at home orders or other community restrictions is always your best defense against contracting this virus.  However, we are still human and need social interaction.  If you need to travel for any reason, do your research, respect people’s boundaries, adhere to new protocols and enjoy.  Stay Safe!!
