- April 6: 2021: Covid-19 Travel Certificates? A form of Covid-19 certificate or passport will become a necessary document sooner or later. The transportation and hospitality industries in particular see it as a way to provide a safe environment for their customers. In Israel, the country with the world's highest vaccination rate, such a certificate is already in use; a number of European countries are testing various applications, and the European Union will begin to issue a digital green certificate to its citizens before summer. At the heart of this certificate is a QR code that contains personal data that is safe and secure. The World Health Organization is expected to recommend that this certificate be recognized beyond the E.U. The world's civil airline association IATA is also working on a travel pass.

Some have cancelled their trips, but the vast majority are postponing their vacations into fall 2020 or 2021. Delaying a trip instead of cancelling outright preserves paid deposits and gives you something to look forward to. What's more, many tour companies and cruise lines offer extra bonus offers if you postpone and not cancel your reservation(s).
Now is the time to plan your next great vacation -- we're eager to make it so!

We have been selling TravelGuard insurance for many years and our clients have been happy with their coverage.
If you are considering canceling your trip due to the Coronavirus, please read your insurance policy thoroughly. Generally, fear of travel is not a covered event under most of our policies.
Nonetheless, there may be additional options available to travelers whose plans have been impacted. Travelers planning to re-book their travel for later in the year may be able to modify their current insurance policy to apply to future travel.
Our office in Mission Viejo remains closed, and we're hard at work at home. Please contact us via email, and we'll get back to you quickly.
