Resources, Tips & Tricks:

  • Dave & Deb’s Future Travel Predictions

    • Some airports are only allowing travellers in the airport.
    • The airport experience will change. The airport will most likely implement machines that can detect if you have a fever when you pass through them.
    • Travel will be more expensive. 
    • Travel will get back to normal in 2021. People will accept living with the virus (with or without a vaccine) 
    • Air Canada is looking to return to regularly scheduled flights by the end of the year
    • Airbnb’s booking has been going up. Airbnb allows you to self isolate much better. 
    • What will happen to hostels? Maybe the people who don’t mind being in crowds at beaches and parks will be the ones who are ok with staying in hostels. 
    • Tours probably won’t change. They would implement COVID protocols
    • Food tours might struggle but outdoor nature tour will do well
