As the travel industry rebounds and is no longer hampered by border closings, flight cancellations and government curfews , there will be a lot of options for travelers to consider for their next trip. No longer will winging it on the web suffice and enlisting skills, connections, and expert knowledge of a Travel Advisor will be almost imperative.

Face Masks: Where & When

Background
DO I HAVE TO WEAR A MASK ON A PLANE?

Yes, wearing a face mask to travel is our new, albeit temporary, normal. Most airlines across the world have implemented a requirement for all passengers to wear face masks during the boarding process and onboard, through at least the end of June.

WHERE WILL I NEED TO WEAR A MASK?

Face mask requirements vary from city to city and airport to airport. It is important to check the requirements of not only your airline, but your destination, the airports you will transit, and with your accommodations to ensure you are adequately prepared.

WHAT KIND OF MASK DO I NEED?

While some airlines will be providing passengers health and safety kits onboard, the CDC advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.

Travel Restrictions

Managing Business Travel Programs

These are just a few of the ways FROSCH is helping our clients manage their travel programs during COVID-19.

TRAVELER SAFETY & SECURITY

Review your company’s policy on safety and security. Items to focus on include ongoing incident monitoring, traveler maps, and location incident reports.

COMMUNICATION

Ensure you have the right information, mobile technology and strategy to proactively and reactively communicate with all employees worldwide.

TRAVEL POLICY & COMPLIANCE

Determine if any policy changes are needed. Now, more than ever, you need to ensure compliance is at 100% whereby all travelers are adhering to company directives.
