Lean on Us

Travel planning during the time of COVID-19 comes with a lot of questions and uncertainties. Whether you plan to travel this season or next, a Travel Advisor is critical. We have helped our travelers navigate trip changes, flight cancellations, and last minute revisions to entry and testing requirements worldwide. Through it all, we are staffing a 24/7 emergency line for you to use when assistance is needed. We are your biggest advocate. Every change, cancellation and rebooked trip is unique and receives our focused attention and workable solutions. Any updates are communicated quickly and directly so you can relax and let us do the legwork.


We believe knowledge is the most powerful tool at your disposal and we remain a key information resource for our travelers. We monitor CDC, WHO, and destination recommendations closely. We also encourage you to educate yourself on the entry requirements for your destination whether domestic or abroad. Here are some useful resources:

  • Check your destination's entry requirements before departure: Entry Requirements by Country (U.S. Department of State)
  • Advance PCR testing for coronavirus may be necessary prior to arrival. Turnaround time for results can vary widely by location. Find and research the lab in your area HERE.
  • Check in on what countries are open and what they are currently requiring for entry at Sherpa Travel Map.
  • Although our operators may have a supply of PPE (personal protective equipment) available, we highly recommend bringing your own masks or face coverings, hand sanitizer, and gloves.
  • Be prepared to bring your own gear. Rentals may be posted as available online, (snorkeling equipment for example), but may not be offered currently. Check on the status for your specific trip once booked.

Prepare to Be Flexible

The spirit of adventure travel has always required flexibility--if the waters get choppy then the itinerary may change according to the conditions. In the same spirit, we recommend being prepared to be flexible. Here are some additional tips:

  • Pay a bit more for refundable and transferable airfares. Plan in extra "buffer" days in case of flight or testing delays.
  • Be ready to adapt to last-minute excursion changes once you're on the ground.
  • Protect your Investment with a Travel Protection Policy

Comprehensive coverage has proved invaluable for our travelers when unexpected events have affected their trip. With regards to COVID-19, coverage may be available in the event of testing positive before your trip, preventing you from traveling, or if you test positive during your trip and need to quarantine. We recommend a travel protection policy from Redpoint Travel Protection - www.adventure-life.com/insurance

Private and Small Group Travel Has Never Sounded Better

Our style of travel has always focused on small group or private experience, styles which are especially suited to travel in these current conditions. Design a custom land tour for just your travel group. Or travel by sea on vessels accommodating less than 200 passengers. Many cruise operators are now offering never-before-seen lenient booking policies and discount incentives for flexible planners. Ask us about offers in your destination. If you prefer to restrict your trip to friends or family, we are seeing some amazing deals on private yacht charters. All our local travel providers have implemented protocols and keep travelers' health and safety as a top priority.
