Covid lifted Prague’s hangover. Now the city wants to quit partying. – Pre-pandemic, over-tourism was a big problem for some cities. They loved the tourism dollars, but it made life unbearable for the average citizen that lived there. Like everything in life, you need to find a happy medium to have long-term success. Hopefully, they’ll figure out a way to make it work.

Virgin Atlantic FlyReady to streamline transatlantic journeys. – Delta Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic have partnered on a digital health tool that allows you to find, book, and prove that they have the correct COVID-19 tests to fly to their destination. This is a very helpful tool since you don’t want to think you have everything covered, but then find out that you took the wrong COVID test. Lufthansa is also providing fast check-in with a digital certification of your test results. More and more airlines will start offering these technologies to encourage travel and make life easier for passengers.

8 Things You Should Never Do in a Hotel. – It’s been a while since many of us traveled, so here are some valuable tips for your next hotel stay. I always put the do not disturb sign on my door because I like privacy, even if that means that I don’t get fresh towels. You can make your own bed, and you can easily call or walk down to the front desk to request a new set of towels. I need to get better about the other suggestions though. What are your best hotel tips?

Book carefully; Some open countries are shutting down again. – We’re all excited about traveling again and are starting to book travel to destinations around the globe. One thing that we have to remember is that COVID flare-ups could cause some of these countries to shut down again and derail our travel plans. Keep an eye out on your destinations and double-check COVID requirements at least a week before your departure date to ensure that you don’t get a nasty surprise.

Three new US destinations join Swoop’s network. – This is great news once U.S.-Canadian travel opens up again. St Pete, Orlando, and San Diego are popular beach destinations for Canadians, but this also gives Americans a low-cost avenue to visit Canadian cities.
