How to Book the Cheapest Flights

Travel News and Alerts

Can I Cancel My Flight, Cruise or Hotel?

In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, most domestic and international airlines are currently offering no-fee changes with varying policies. In many cases, fare differences will apply when rebooking for future travel dates.

Should you even travel domestically? 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.”
