Traveling this summer? Here’s what you need to know

If you need evidence of America’s pent-up wanderlust, just look at Memorial Day weekend: More than 7 million people were screened at U.S. airports, the highest number since the pandemic began. And road travel expected a 60 percent jump compared to the holiday weekend last year. Travel experts say it lines up with an expected surge in “revenge travel,” Americans who are eager to shed the pandemic — with all its disappointment and canceled plans — and finally get out of the house. But the travel industry is not what it was before COVID-19 took over the world. Some changes, such as masking and decreased capacity on cruise ships, are temporary. Other adaptations, like expanded cleaning and relaxed cancellation and rebooking policies, are likely here to stay. Plus, a global pandemic has made would-be tourists view travel differently. Experts say this will be the age of conscious travel. Tourists will be more discerning about trips, more appreciative of nature and local communities, more careful with their money.  Thanks to flexible workspaces, some might even embark on long-term “workations,” combining work with vacations and staying for longer periods of time in a new place. Friday morning, host Kerri Miller discussed what post-pandemic travel might look like with two experts who believe travel won’t just snap back to the way it was before COVID-19. Post-pandemic travel will be something new. Guests: Kyle Potter is executive editor of Thrifty Traveler. Bianca Alexander is co-host of Conscious Living, a lifestyle series on PBS that travels the globe exploring what it takes to be a more mindful human.

With the US now requiring a negative COVID-19 test to enter the country, it was a good move by Hyatt. Nick Serati, co-founder of Thrifty Traveler, covers a couple of key areas for us this week. First, he's got a great review of the new Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic. Then, he and I break down what it was like to go through the free COVID testing at the resort and to travel back to the US shortly after the new regulations were in place.

As we look to the future of travel both in the pandemic and beyond, there are positive and negative developments. We've seen some pretty good deals being offered by airlines and hotel chains. 20% discounts on hotel gift cards were some of the best I've seen so far. Alas, that deal is gone. But, there is an easy path to decent hotel elite status just by applying for a credit card. On the bad side of the coin, Delta quietly rolled out some changes to partner awards that are hard to swallow. You're looking at a minimum of a 25% increase, with some increases being over 100%!

“There’s no such thing as a once in a lifetime trip.” Meet Jared Kamrowski. Jared recently quit his full-time job as a federal bank examiner to focus solely on his passion project, Thrifty Traveler (@thriftytraveler). To put it simply, Thrifty Traveler is a website that posts daily flight deals and offers valuable insight on numerous topics including, credit card rewards, traveling on a budget, and many other helpful pieces of money saving content. Jared talks about the decision to leave a comfortable career to venture out on his own and what it feels to be his own boss. He walks us through a typical day, which starts around 5 a.m., and how he aggregates daily flight deals for the website and his subscribers. Jared is also a credit card rewards ninja and he provides us with helpful tips on the traveling hacking game. Over the last several years, he has signed up for more than 100 credit cards and has more points than he knows what to do with. A few minutes spent exploring his social media will give you an idea of the places that his points have taken him.
