This is Alex and today I will present you my last summary of some nice travel deals. First of all I would like to wish you all a Happy and healthy New Year, and hopefully 2021 will be more kind to all of us and our travel plans!
I hope so much that the travel industry will gradually come back to normal, and at least on summer 2021 most people will be able to come to their dream destinations. Today traveling is not easy because most countries have major restrictions and require staying 14 days upon arrival or doing a Covid test.
In order to avoid a 14-days quarantine a good solution will be going to make a Covid test and present it upon arrival. For those who can’t live without travels, and for whom the Covid pandemic is not an obstacle, I made a summary of amazing travel deals. The best source to find last deals is the Scyscanner, and you can always monitor it. Let’s dive in and see what I have found for you.
