Heads Up! Before you purchase an airline ticket to a vacation destination, find out if rental cars are available for your travel dates- and at the price you are willing to pay! Typical per day rates are $100 at most airports and neighborhood locations in the states (Hawaii and Alaska, too), Mexico, Central American, and the Caribbean. This shortage is expected to last at least for the rest of the year, so make haste on a booking. Start your search at AutoSlash.com. Once booked directly with a rental car company, share your confirmation with Auto Slash and the website will continuously monitor the reservation for a lower rate right up until your pick-up date!

Check the CDC guidelines on global travel. Destinations are categorized in Levels 1-4 to indicate the level of risk (low to very high) for each country. The CDC Travel Planner shows travel restrictions for each U.S. state.

All travelers inbound to the U.S. must have digital or written proof of a negative Covid-19 test. Here are the details on this new requirement from the CDC. Travelers from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are exempt.

How to Book the Cheapest Flights


Travel News and Alerts

Can I take an international trip?

Here’s Clark’s advice: “What I’ve been recommending to anyone with travel plans outside the United States is that you just have to keep watching this. You need to make your own decision now that rebooking policies have become more favorable from most travel suppliers,” Clark says. “And that means making your own decision in terms of your health and how you feel about traveling. Traveling is about fun and getting away from it all, but if you’re going to feel a wall of worry, don’t go right now.”
