I agree. Travel is fun. It’s all how you make it work. However, my main concern is I book my trip and the rules shift to where I am not sure if I can go or not. Yes, travel cancellation helps but it’s a real bummer to cancel because the rules change again. Take Hawaii. I booked for December but recently cancelled. That’s because the mandatory 14 day quarantine was extended to September 1. After that, proving you are negative by seeing a doctor 72 hours before flying removes the quarantine requirement. If I thought that was written in stone, I would not have cancelled. I am not sure. They can change or extend at anytime. I think they have upped the quarantine dates twice and might even do it again.

I plan to travel once I see consistency in rules. My guess is this will take awhile.

I agree. It’s easy for me to book since I had to cancel many times that I’m booking with restricted options and airfare credits from previous cancelled flights. So, nothing is coming out of pocket.

That’s the way to go. I think 2021 will see rules stabilize. After that, I plan to travel like a school boy pigging out on candy. I miss it and can’t wait to go again.

Agreed. I’m also looking to take advantage of destinations I would never normally go to. If I end up with restricted options if this St John trip doesn’t work out and I see availability in Arizona in July, I’ll go. Is it ideal? No! But it’s available and I’d rather sit in a resort pool than let SO disappear because I didn’t use them. Guess what? I’ll probably have fun too lol. I’m just bummed I didn’t deposit in interval before banking. That would have been better

Yes. That’s a good plan. From what I have read the TS points have been flexible which they should be given the situation. I’m with you. I’ll travel anywhere. Each one is always a super adventure. Yes, that would have been better.

This agreement only covers land border crossings. The US has not closed the border to air travel for Canadians.
True, but everyone entering MUST self isolate for 14 days when landing in Canada from an international destination.

Bieber is Canadian. Any Canadian citizen may return to Canada at any time, and must self isolate for 14 days upon arrival.
