Planning Travel During Covid

Although the COVID-19 pandemic brought family travel to a standstill, with month after month of closures and cancelled plans, we’re thrilled to see families getting out and exploring the world together again. The coronavirus continues to evolve and to affect communities around the globe, but the majority of countries have reopened their borders to welcome visitors, with many relaxing restrictions either partially or entirely. Now more than ever, families understand how precious vacation time becomes during the years when kids are at home, and they’re ready to make bucket-list trips happen sooner rather than later. That’s where we come in — our Family Travel Advisor team is here to help you navigate today’s travel landscape and tailor your vacation plans to your needs, wishes and comfort level.

From tips on how and where families can spend time outdoors, to helping families take advantage of the pause in travel to plan unforgettable trips for the future, our Advisors have been dedicated to helping clients keep their vacation dreams alive in any way possible.

Our Advisors have tracked every detail of the crisis as it’s progressed, monitoring communication from the Centers for Disease Control in tandem with updates from our vast network of suppliers around the world. Throughout, we’ve helped clients who did decide to travel embark on road trips, rent private homes and enjoy hotel and resort properties that figured out ways to open safely. And we’ve supported clients who put a temporary hold on all trips and have taken the past few years to dream and plan the family vacations they are taking now and into 2023 and beyond.

Coronavirus Update

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
