Hotels and Destinations Are Offering Free Insurance, How Will it Impact Travel?
To boost traveler confidence, a growing number of hotels and destinations have begun offering free medical insurance to guests.
Most recently, Sandals announced all guests staying at one of their properties in the Caribbean will receive free medical coverage, including COVID-19 related expenses, for bookings now through Dec. 31, 2020.
If You Want to Visit Hawaii and Skip Quarantine, There Are New Rules You Need to Know
The testing program, which goes into effect on Oct. 15 for travelers age 5 and older, will allow travelers to bypass Hawaii's mandated 14-day quarantine with proof of a negative COVID-19 test. The test must be from a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certified laboratory and taken within 72 hours of the visitor's last leg of their trip.
Critics of the plan say that the testing program will not do enough to protect locals from possible cases of COVID-19. By not making the tests mandatory for all — some travelers may still opt for the two-week quarantine — travelers could unintentionally contract the virus.
At this stage, the free PCR test is maintained for clients upon arrival at the airport, equally, clients must travel with COVID-19 insurance, and if this is not possible, then they have to buy Cuban medical insurance coverage at the airport upon arrival at the cost of 30 USD.
“The situation is very fluid”, said Mr. Gomez, “I’m looking forward to the time when this safe zone is expanded to include more hotels and more services, but right now we are happy to open Varadero, one of the Canadian favourite destination”.

Cuba to test visitors for coronavirus, limiting tourism to the keys.
HAVANA - Cuba will test all visitors for coronavirus when it reopens to international tourism, which will be limited at first to the beach resorts at the keys of the Caribbean’s largest island, Prime Minister Manuel Marrero Cruz said.
Unveiling cautious plans for lifting Cuba’s partial lockdown, Marrero Cruz said specialists would conduct epidemiological monitoring at hotels, where occupation would be limited. Excursions would be restricted to the keys.
Visitors would not be able to visit Havana, the center of Cuba’s outbreak, at first.
In his presentation to the council of ministers, reported by state-run media, Marrero Cruz did not give a time frame for the reopening to tourism, one of the cash-strapped country’s top sources of hard currency.
