Dear ShermansTravel Readers,
This is a confusing and challenging time for all of us who love to travel. Many avid travelers are torn between their passion for creating new experiences and seeing new places, and their concerns about the safety and complexity of traveling during the coronavirus outbreak.
Here at ShermansTravel, we always strive to provide you with advice on how to be a smarter traveler—bringing you the best deals out there, sharing the expertise of our globetrotting correspondents. Right now, this might have a different meaning: planning for future travels, wanderlust with travel eye candy, and experiencing travel in new ways from home. Now more than ever, It’s crucial to arm yourself with information. That includes talking to your health care providers, checking the CDC website, understanding how travel insurance works, and keeping informed with our coronavirus updates.
Some people are taking a wait-and-see approach before making any travel decisions. Others consider this a great time to take advantage of lower prices on future flights, cruises, and tours. You’ll see deals for summer travel, as well as farther out seasons. Whatever you decide is ultimately up to you and your loved ones.
Be sure to check in with your travel providers as well. We’ve been impressed with how our industry partners have responded to this unprecedented situation. Hotels and airlines are adopting more flexible cancellation policies, as are cruise lines, who are instituting more rigorous screening procedures.
Here at ShermansTravel, we’re excited to get back on an airplane. But in the meantime, we’ll be traveling the world from our sofa, and maybe even hopping in the car to escape the crowds and enjoy nature.
Ultimately, we will continue our mission of sending you expert advice and incredible travel offers, for booking now or when you’re ready. Above all, we want to continue to inspire your travels, whenever that may be.
Stay safe and happy travels,
