The Current State of Travel And What’s Next

The Current State of Travel And What’s Next

Well, it’s been quite a year for the entire world, let alone for the travel industry. As your humble Brad’s Deals travel editor, I like to think I have a pulse on what the future might hold for the industry, but the pandemic is something no one expected to ever have to adapt to. Shut borders, closed theme parks, quarantining, and COVID testing are just some of the major changes that still are a reality for travelers one year from the official declaration of the pandemic.

However, there is lots to be hopeful for! For starters, there are several vaccines approved for emergency use in the United States, and the rollout of administering them continues at a rapid pace. With all of this optimism that the pandemic is turning a corner, a natural question for all of us that have been in our homes for much of the last year begins to pop up: can I travel now?
