Domestic and international bookings are on the rise, especially for the second half of 2022. Hospitality vendors are welcoming guests with promises of increased cleanliness and contactless transactions. But much remains uncertain about upcoming getaways. COVID-19 is still impacting travel. Labor and supply shortages are affecting restaurants, airlines, hotels, and rental car agencies. So what’s the best way to plan a trip now? Here are some tips:

Be flexible and make your reservations earlier. Airlines and other travel vendors have consolidated services, so have a back-up plan in case your schedule needs to change. Also, some hotels have reduced amenities, such as daily housekeeping and in-house restaurant hours. Verify your destination’s status before leaving home.

Consider a trip focused on the outdoors. Popular destinations include beach and ski resorts, plus trips to national and state parks. Our prediction is national park visits will continue to stay strong for several years to come.

Explore digital travel planning tools, which can offer more choices, including pet-friendly hotels, all-inclusive resorts, vacation rental homes, and enhanced options for those working remotely. And you might also want to consider purchasing a travel assistance program for longer getaways.
