Should I book travel now?

While we have lots of hope for travel in 2021, the year is off to a slow start in terms of COVID-19 case counts, as we await a wide-scale vaccine roll-out.

Multiple states have restrictions on travel. Quarantine and testing requirements are also present in many states and countries — and the rules can change quickly.

Keep in mind that all airline passengers over the age of two must wear a mask or face covering over their nose and mouth, with no exceptions. Alaska has also phased out blocked middle seats as of early January.

We are really crossing our fingers that things will start to turn the corner by the spring months, though we all know that there are no guarantees. Fortunately, Alaska no longer charges fees if you need to change or cancel your trip, other than the fare difference between your old ticket and new.
