If you rent a car this year it maybe 1 or even 2 years old –

  Car rental companies are obviously suffering from the economic tsunami that the virus has brought to the travel industry. The obvious way they deal with the downturn is to not purchase any new vehicles and extend the life of their current inventory. For the car renter, this means that you probably won’t get that […]


Here is my crystal ball on the 10 new things to deal with the next time you fly.

  #1 – Everyone is required to wear a face mask – This is no big news for many people as over the last two weeks almost all the airlines said they will require face masks for all crew and passengers. I expect this requirement will be with us at least through the end of […]


Great news! We are now taking orders for face masks for travelers –

Posted on

  This past week many airlines announced they are requiring face masks for all staff and passengers who are flying in the future. Many of the airlines said they would make face masks available at the check-in desk or gate. We do not know at this time if they will provide them for free or […]

    It appears many airlines are considering blocking off using middle seats on flights in the near future as they try to figure out ways for social distancing on airplanes. That will be such a joy to not have to be squeezed into a middle seat at least for a few months. How long […]


A “BIG BOOM” airfare sale is coming in May but the bad news will come quickly afterwards –

Posted on

We are about to see a monster airfare sale launched in May. The airlines are just holding their breath for the right time to pull the trigger on a massive airfare sale to get people traveling again once the government lets the chokehold off of the economy. I think in a few weeks the airlines […]


Everybody is talking about how dirty airplanes are but the airlines will need to have fewer flights if they want to really clean their planes –

    The COVID-19 virus has caused a lot of people to question how healthy it is to fly in an airplane. The nice thing about airplane travel is that airplanes have state-of-the-art HEPA filters to provide real clean air movement on the airplane. How dirty the seats are is another question. Most airplanes have […]


I have four GIANT predictions that will permanently rock the travel industry as a result of COVID-19:

Posted on

  Prediction #1 – I predict the airline $200 change fees will be permanently banned by the government – All the major airlines except Southwest, prior to COVID-19, charged an average of $200 for someone to change a domestic airline ticket once it had been purchased. The virus has forced airlines to cancel thousands of flights […]


Here is my four-step plan to give travelers the confidence to start traveling again –

Posted on

I think the airlines have done a lot recently to make sure travelers are safeguarded when they fly. However, I think the airlines are going to need to add even more safeguards to give the traveling public the confidence to travel again. After talking to some of our customers and finding out their ideas of […]

  These last few weeks have been a whirlwind for the travel industry. This week Executive Travel was able to launch our “Survive then Thrive” company initiative to help us make sure when the travel industry does come back that we are able to retain our great team so that we can continue our company’s […]


Everything “travel” is moving to the fall

Posted on

With all the COVID-19 travel cancellations this spring we are seeing that the majority of vacation travel is being moved to this fall. The 30-day travel ban to Europe has put a wrench in travel plans for many Americans. As a result, we are already seeing a wave of travel reservations rescheduled during the months […]
