You may not be ready to fly again, but that doesn’t mean you haven’t begun to consider it. Although the choice to fly is entirely yours, airlines are working hard to provide a safer travel experience. Here’s how to travel smarter and safely, as well as what to anticipate from several of Travelocity’s airline partners.
Whether your next trip is for pleasure or business, here are some pointers to keep in mind as you plan:
Conduct your research Particularly about travel warnings and limitations for certain home towns and destinations, which may include on-arrival quarantine, prohibitions on non-essential travel, requirements or changes in visa-approval methods. An interactive list of air travel restrictions and advisories by nation may be found here.
Learn about travel insurance. Make sure you understand what your travel insurance covers.
PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) Pack personal protective equipment such as masks and sanitizer.
Keep up to date Learn about our hotel and airline partners’ new and updated cleaning and safety procedures.
Pose questions If you have any issues regarding an existing Travelocity itinerary, please contact the Customer Service Portal.
Look for adaptability. Filter your search results for cancellation policies that are flexible, such as no change costs. Several major airlines, including Delta Air Lines, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, and United Airlines, have flexible ticketing alternatives. You may alter your flight once without paying any costs under these rules, as long as you fly within the departure dates stated by the specific airline policy. (As usual, fare differences may apply.) Some airlines may even allow you to cancel flights in exchange for future credit. So, by booking early, you can lock in a fantastic price today on a flight with no change costs and have the confidence that you can reschedule later. Please keep in mind that airline rules differ. Policies are subject to revision. We suggest that you carefully verify the regulations of the individual airlines before booking.

Making travel more secure
We’ve prepared a collection of travel advice from health organisations throughout the globe (including the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) to help you think about the precautions you should take before travelling. Please go through all of the information you need to protect yourself. The list below is not comprehensive.
Wash your hands often. Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are unavailable, use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol. Unwashed hands should not be used to contact your eyes, nose, or mouth.
Put on a mask. Before applying a mask, wash your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Use a mask or face covering to cover your mouth and nose, making sure there are no gaps between your face and the mask. If you must contact the mask while wearing it, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer or soap and water to clean your hands.
Etiquette for coughing and sneezing If you are not wearing a mask, cover your mouth or nose with a flexed elbow or use disposable tissue and throw it away immediately. After coughing or sneezing, wash your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer or soap and water.
