Covid-19 Travel Statistics: Your Milage May Vary has an interesting summary of Covid-19 travel statistics. I love looking at numbers, so I found it fascinating that almost half of Americans have canceled their summer travel plans and almost half have lost money on canceled trips.
Ticketmaster Will Issue Refunds for Postponements: According to this post on Miles to Memories, Ticketmaster will now start issuing refunds for postponed events (not just canceled events). The company got a lot of negative press for not doing so up until now, because many events decided to postpone indefinitely vs. canceling. I have two events in this category, but so far there is no option to get a refund online. I suppose I better block off half a day to call.
Immunity Passports: There’s been a lot of speculation as to whether immunity passports will become a requirement for future international travel. I didn’t realize there already is one for Yellow Fever. See this post at The Gate.
New York Times Drops Travel Section: Per this article on Skift, the New York Times dropped its Sunday travel section. It replaced it with an At-Home section aimed at quarantine lifestyle. Oh, how sad. I remember as a kid getting The Denver Post newspaper and devouring the travel section every Sunday. Hopefully, the travel section will come back soon.
