As destinations begin to open and travel slowly returns, sectors within the tourism industry have developed new guidelines to ensure the health and comfort of guests, team members, and local communities. Airlines, hotels, and other service providers are working closely with their local governments and health officials to update and improve these protocols as needed, given the fluidity of the current situation.

As travel opens up around the world, all destinations, airports, air carriers, hotels, restaurants, transfer companies, car rental companies, shops, and excursions have established COVID-19 safety measures and precautions which may change from day to day. These safety measures may include but are not limited to curfews, attraction closings and reduced hours, size of group gatherings, social distancing requirements, health screenings and self-quarantine requirements. In addition, you must follow CDC guidelines and the recommendations of health officials. Please note that any public location where people have been or are present provides an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 and Southwest Vacations cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed during your vacation. By traveling, you agree that you assume these inherent risks associated with your vacation. Any and all additional costs will be your sole responsibility.
