COVID-19 Policy for Re-Entry into the United States

The United States requires that all air passengers entering the country provide a negative COVID-19 test prior to boarding their flight as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Effective Monday, December 6, 2021, the requirement has been updated for all international travelers 2 years or older, regardless of vaccination status, to show a negative Covid-19 viral test taken no more than 1 day before their return flight, or have documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days.

We are working closely with our travel supplier partners including hotels, airlines and ground transportation operators to help provide you with options for your travel plans. Many of our travel suppliers have made arrangements for on-site COVID-19 testing right at your hotel (view these travel supplier policies). Please be sure to review the CDC FAQ’s regarding this new policy and consult your travel consultant for more details.

Important Information

Our Travel Consultants are available to assist you, should you have questions regarding your upcoming travel, and they are just a phone call away—easily accessible with no hold times. Most of our hotel partners, cruise line partners, tour operator partners, and all major airlines have introduced new flexible change and cancellation policies regarding upcoming trips. Each trip is unique and each has its own policies that you need to be aware of, so please contact your travel consultant if you have an upcoming booking that you would like to discuss.

We always encourage customers to purchase travel insurance, regardless of the circumstance. Each travel insurance policy is different and can have exclusions in the case of an epidemic, such as COVID-19. There are policies in the market that will protect customers for cancellation for “any reason” or “any time,” and these policies have a broader range of reasons a customer can cancel and receive a percentage of their trip’s cost back. It is critically important that as a traveler you understand the exclusions of the policies you are buying; most plans, including Cancel Anytime plans, contain general exclusions from coverage for any loss directly or indirectly due to any loss, condition, or event that was known or foreseeable when the plan was purchased, or due to an epidemic. However, our travel insurance partner Allianz is until further notice accommodating claims due to illness from COVID-19 under the Emergency Medical Care benefit and under the Trip Cancellation or Trip Interruption benefit.

The rapid and vast spread of the virus will likely trigger new travel disruptions and policy changes as governments and airlines take extraordinary steps to limit the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to monitor the situation daily and provide you with periodic updates.
