Summer Travel Is Back! Tell Us Your (Early) Summer Travel Pans

MIAMI, FLORIDA - JUNE 20: Passengers arrive as Royal Caribbean International prepares to sail the Freedom of the Seas from PortMiami during the first U.S. trial cruise testing COVID-19 protocols on June 20, 2021 in Miami, Florida. The cruise ship gets underway with employee volunteers on board. According to the cruise line, the purpose of the simulated voyage is to observe its “multilayered health and safety measures” following CDC requirements. The trial is one more step in the process of resuming operations out of U.S. ports, 15 months after the pandemic caused the cruise industry to shut down. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

Flight and hotel bookings are going fast, rental cars are in short supply around the country, and popular outdoor attractions like National Parks are more crowded than usual this summer. Our very own Larry Mantle just returned from a weeklong road trip, which included a drive through Navajo Nation in the four corners area of Arizona, where he reported seeing significantly more tourist traffic than he usually does.

Today on AirTalk, we want to hear about your summer travel plans, how you’ve navigated making them in the post-pandemic world, or if you’ve already ventured out on vacation for the first time since the pandemic, how did it go? Join our live conversation by calling us at 866-893-5722.
