It seems as though we are getting back to a bit of “normal” when it comes to vacations and leisure travel. People are moving about the country. And while Covid is still around, it seems to be more manageable, and less severe if you get it.
However, in this “new normal” environment, based on what we are seeing here at the VEGAS VOYAGERS, the hardest part of travel, still seems to be getting “to and from” your travel destination. All the TSA rules and screening still apply if you’re traveling by air. And in some cases, depending on destination, you also have to show proof of vaccine or negative covid test. Ignorance of local requirements is no defense. It is incumbent upon you, the traveler, to know the local rules for entry into your destination.
Airports have become more crowded and staffing at airlines, cruise lines and hotels are down. While there are plenty of jobs to be hard, many popular vacation spots are very short staffed. The key tip here is, be patient, and expect longer than usual check in lines all along your travel route.
We still highly recommend getting to the starting point of your vacation a day early if you’re taking an escorted tour or a cruise. Traveling day of a cruise, for example, can be anxiety producing especially if that flight you’re on is delayed.
Ultimately, you want to make your vacation as stress free as possible. That’s why our “bus to the Boat” program is so successful. Back at the end of March on or Princess Coastal California cruise we transferred a hundred VEGAS VOYAGERS from Las Vegas to the pier in Los Angeles with a 100% stress free experience. That should be your goal when planning your next vacation.
We are more than happy to help you plan your next “stress free” vacation. Please feel free to call us at 516-485-3200 and we are more than happy to assist you.
