Travel Operations In The Age Of Pandemics

We have all learned a valuable lesson over the past few months and that is that change is the only thing that never changes. Today we find ourselves reacting to the many changes brought about by COVID-19. For JR Travel Advisors some of the changes affect us, as Travel Advisors, and for you the Traveler, there are many changes that could affect your plans. 

CRUISING 

With only a few exceptions cruising remains shut down for the remainder of 2020. Royal Caribbean, Princess, Norwegian, MSC, and Carnival are now booking cruise departures beginning in January and February 2021. If you have a Future Cruise Certificate (FCC) from a canceled cruise you can now apply them to any cruise departing in 2021 and in some cases 2022. 

If you don't have an FCC we strongly recommend holding off booking a cruise until early 2021 to make sure the cruise lines are in fact back to full operations.  

ALL-INCLUSIVE RESORTS

Many of the All-Inclusive resorts are back open at this time. However, understand that does not mean that your experience will meet your expectations. You may find that not all restaurants, shops, shows, and excursions will be operating at the resort or in the surrounding area. Also, be prepared for a very limited number of flight options to get to and from the resort. 

ESCORTED OR SELF-GUIDED TOURS

This travel option is also in the early stages of re-starting operations. Availability will be dependent on what is happening in your destination with the virus and could change at any time.

Meetings in the Age of Pandemic's 

When you are ready to start planning a vacation again it is always best to meet face to face. However, you may still have some health concerns.  

 

We have found, an excellent solution where we can meet face to face without ever leaving home, We can do that by using the Zoom application which you can access on a PC, iPad, or Smartphone.  We can meet with you at a time that works for you using  Zoom.

Many thanks to Jim Rozell for making a very difficult time for us seamless!  Having booked a cruise to Alaska we were excited about our upcoming vacation in June.  Due to the COVID-19  virus we knew we would not be able to go as planned.  As this trip was in the works for a year, all arrangements had been made - cruise to airlines.  One call to Jim and he handled all of the details for us.  We did not have to deal with several different vendors to cancel our plans, Jim took care of everything.  We look forward to rescheduling our trip with Jim!

We just returned from an amazing trip to Ireland/Scotland - taking the Ireland/Scotland Sampler with Peter as our CIE tour guide(amazing history knowledge & entertaining at the same time!) - experienced beautiful sights of both countries including Northern Ireland..it was a dream of a lifetime trip!! Loved every minute..who can say that you had "no hiccups" traveling internationally for 10 days..we can!!! A huge thank you to Avoya Travel Advisor Jim Rozelle & CIE Tours - Peter and driver Mickey -
