COVID-19 has halted most people’s travel plans in 2020. People who were going on their dream trips around the world had to postpone or cancel due to this unprecedented pandemic. While 2020 was the year of staying at home, the arrival of the COVID-19 vaccine means there is hope for travel to thrive again in 2021. Now is the perfect time to book your next trip because many hotels are still offering discounts, and the arrival of the vaccine means COVID-19 will likely be dying down by next Spring or Summer.
