“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Travel in the Wake of COVID-19

Many states and some foreign countries are beginning to relax, or even cancel, their responses to the coronavirus pandemic. But is it time to start traveling again, overseas or domestically? Taking a trip to the store for supplies or to dine out, if you’re willing to risk it, is about all the going we can recommend right now.

Although the travel industry wants your bookings more than ever, you can’t even rely on insurance as a safety net when buying a vacation right now. Since COVID-19 is now a known event, anything that you book now likely wouldn’t be covered if you had to cancel due to the pandemic in the future. So, before you book anything, be sure to carefully read the cancellation policies.

Well, how about planning a trip? We say do it! Now is the perfect time to research and plan your post-coronavirus travel. Here’s what Fodor’s says you need to keep in mind.
