Prepare yourself and your properties for a brighter peak season in 2021

We know that travel is likely to gradually recover at varying rates, reflecting how and when governments alter their stay-at-home orders, border controls and social distancing measures as well as resurgences of the virus. With countries at different stages of the pandemic, exactly where and when travel will return is difficult to predict, but we have seen people opting to stay closer to home at first, with local travel initially returning.

 

While the virus' impact on travel is unprecedented, travel is fundamental to who we are. While it may take some time to return to pre-COVID-19 levels, people will want to experience the world, all of it, perhaps in a more meaningful way than ever before.

 

That’s why we help you, our Connectivity partners, be prepared for when that moment arrives.
