Can My Family Travel???

Hi Everyone! Because I have had many travel inquiries, I thought I’d post some travel information during COVID-19 times here. The question I am getting most is: “Can my family travel???” Yes, this is on people’s minds as they want to both maintain health-safety while getting a bit of a break. (If this is not you at this time, still read on – there is something for you, too!)

YES, You Can!

The answer is YES, with travel exceptions. The exceptions include, of course, places that are not open to US travelers. But there ARE places in the world to go- and many spectacular options right here in the USA that are bucket-list fulfilling and more than worthwhile for those dreams of a lifetime.

Travel Options Based Upon Your Needs and Concerns

I would be honored to discuss travel options for you and yours based upon your needs and concerns. There are ways to get away between now and Spring Break, if a school schedule applies to you. For the more flexible who can envision taking work and school obligations away from home, why not immerse in a new location, maybe in a place with more natural beauty available to you? Or explore in a way that enhances what your kids are studying in school this year in American History? Why not create a “summer camp” feel to your vacation with an exploration and adventure in the great outdoors? You can even incorporate some volunteer opportunities to enhance your kids’ lives or add to their college resumes!

And for those who can’t see themselves traveling right now, soon EVERYBODY will be, which means planning right now for some future dates in 20121 or 2022 is essential to avoid disappointment. Travel trends are already pointing to availability problems.

My best pieces of travel advice:

  1. Plan now to travel either in the near term or in the future.
  2. Don’t rely on the internet to give you the best results. Google is great for research but not personalization, nor (and here’s the most important part) never for protecting your investment nor in dealing with emergencies or changes to travel requirements should they arise. Work with a travel expert who is well-versed in custom travel.
  3. In these times of heightened health-safety, definitely seek to travel as privately as possible for social-distancing, for accommodations that best keep you virus-free, for more value for your investment, for true immersive experiences catered just for your family’s tastes and interests.

If you are only interested in Disney or a large cruise, that is not what I would suggest nor offer (there are many other experts in these areas I know and can recommend to you). But if you want a life-fulfilling, memory-maker vacation and dream of traveling again when you feel safe to do so, let’s talk – I am right here in Allendale with a worldwide reach, your #GlobalLocal!
