We’re here with advice and updates on international travel following the global coronavirus outbreak. In recent days, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has advised travelers from several countries to “reconsider” visiting the U.S., including Italy, South Korea, and Japan. Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald Trump is taking steps to prevent a resurgence of the virus in the U.S. He has asked all citizens to remain in their homes until the national emergency is lifted and has stopped travel from Europe. Earlier this month, the U.S. government announced that it had expanded its travel ban to include travelers from Iran, North Korea, and Syria, based on the recommendations of the World Health Organization. As for travel in the U.S., other international destinations are either relaxing restrictions or have no restrictions in place. South Africa recently announced that international travel would resume, with U.S. citizens permitted to travel to the country. Travel to the European Union, which encompasses the United Kingdom, is now open to all travelers, with restrictions on the number of people who can travel to individual countries. Also, many travel restrictions were lifted in parts of Asia after China, which reported its first coronavirus cases of unknown origin, officially declared an end to its “pandemic” on January 30. There have been fewer reported cases outside of China, although some of those countries are now relaxing travel restrictions as well.
what’s new for fall travel season
There are a few things that travel agents can look out for in the fall travel season. The first thing to be aware of is that some airlines have cut back on the number of seats they have on their flights. This means that you may have to pay more to fly and you’re likely to be in a less comfortable seat. Another thing to be aware of is that airlines are likely to cut back on their international flights. As the European economy struggles and airlines feel the pressure to save money, this means that you may find that your favorite routes will not be available. So you may need to plan ahead. The good news is that there are still plenty of flights and the prices will be reasonable.
The return to normal life
In order to help manage our COVID-19 response efforts and to protect us from future outbreaks of the virus, the CDC has recommended that we start the gradual reopening of the U.S.
What can you expect from the fall travel season
For those of you who are hoping to take a quick trip to Europe this fall, here are some of the things you can expect. There will be significant change in the airfare landscape, so you may want to consider booking your flight early. European airfare is typically priced slightly higher than North American airfare, so be prepared to pay more if you want to travel Europe this fall. Booking flights for the fall will also be affected by European blackout dates. There are no official blackout dates for traveling to Europe, but there are quite a few common dates that are typically avoided. October is typically not a good time to travel because it’s the height of the school year in the U.S. This leaves European destinations such as London, Rome, Paris, Madrid, and many more virtually empty.
What do travelers need to know about travel season
It’s hard to tell what the travel season will be like this year. It could be busier or quieter than usual, depending on the travel destination. The spring and fall are typically busier, while the winter tends to be slower. That said, it’s important to note that travel does not typically get started until a few weeks into the new year, so if you’re hoping to take some time off this year, you’ll probably have to wait a few weeks to get started.
COVID-19 and travel restrictions
As of the end of March, many countries across the world have announced new travel restrictions and quarantine measures in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. COVID-19 is a new virus, and while we know more about it now than we did when it first appeared, there is still a lot that we don’t know. This is especially true when it comes to the disease’s long-term impact. Travelers are advised to follow the guidance of their country’s health authorities. This includes staying home when they are sick, avoiding non-essential travel and self-isolating when they return to the US if they have been exposed to COVID-19. The best ways to prevent the spread of the coronavirus is through washing hands frequently, covering coughs and sneezes and staying home if you are sick.
