We all need vacation after 2020.
And with vaccines shipping across the country, now may be a good time to start planning your much-needed vacation in 2021.
According to Nisreene Atassi, Global Head of Communications at Brand Expedia, flexibility is the most important part of any trip you plan during Covid-19.
Americans have got used to paying for the cheapest flights and hotel rooms, but you should pay extra to make sure your vacation is fully refundable, Atassi said.
Spending money on travel insurance should also be a priority, but you need to read the fine print. Almost all directives now consider Covid a known event, and this will affect what is covered, according to Atassi.
“Travel insurance is unlikely to cover cancellation due to lockdown in a particular market or similar area,” Atassi said.
