The Bahamas Reverses Ban on US Travelers, But Requires Strict Quarantine

The Bahamian government has reversed its earlier decision to ban U.S. travelers, an action it was willing to take after observing a surge of new COVID-19 cases around the islands, which could be traced back to tourists coming in from the United States. Now, however, the highly tourism-dependent Caribbean nation is saying that it will welcome arrivals from all countries, including the U.S., provided that they follow proper protocols. All international visitors are now required to quarantine for fourteen days upon arrival in the Bahamas, staying in a government-run facility (at their own expense), and then undergo a real-time PCR COVID-19 test at the end…

Delta Turns Flight Around After Multiple Passengers Refuse to Wear Masks

Details are emerging over why a Delta Air Lines flight to Atlanta was turned around and returned to Detroit on Thursday, and once again face masks are the issue. According to reports, two passengers refused to wear face masks during the flight – a mandate for virtually every airline – and the plane returned to Detroit Metro Airport in suburban Romulus. A Delta spokesperson told the MLive.com media outlet that the flight was delayed because the passengers “were non-compliant with crew instructions.” The flight did take off again and land in Atlanta after being delayed by the return to Detroit.

Jamaica Travel Restrictions: What Potential Visitors Need to Know

Save money by traveling to these 9 places in winter

Save money by traveling to these 9 places in winter

Winter is off-season for several world-class destinations, which means lower plane fares and hotel rates. We asked Scott's Cheap Flights for advice on which trips to book. Without a doubt, January through March is the cheapest time to book an international flight departing from the U.S. The reason why is pretty simple, according to Scott Keyes, founder of the flight-deals newsletter Scott’s Cheap Flights.
