COVID-19: The world is closed

As Europe, the UK, and the Americas continue to grapple with the fast-spreading virus, we urge everyone to be safe and stay home as much as possible. Take care of yourself and your loved ones and know that we are all waiting for the world to open again. It’s surreal to be sure, but we will get through this. Our entire Clued In Travel Book team wishes you the very best in this incredibly difficult situation. With lots of love, Dean and Andie

Canceling our next trip.

Like many travelers around the world, our upcoming trip to London and Paris is no longer happening. While it is still possible for US citizens to fly back home from France, there are just too many variables and too many travel risks for us to proceed with it (not the least of which is that airline passengers in France showing any signs of a possible virus will not be allowed on board.) We love Paris, but we do not want to take the chance of being quarantined there. For our ardent readers  who follow our travel plans with enthusiasm, we are posting this news and wait, along with the rest of the world’s travelers, for this terrible epidemic to be over. If you are traveling, we wish you all the best for your continued good health. Happy travels, Dean and Andie

By the way, we will continue our current winter sale prices for all of our Clued In travel books. Even though you may not be traveling in the next month or so, there’s certainly nothing wrong with exploring our opinions of the Clued In cities and planning out the perfect (future) trip.

Traveling in March but wish to avoid crowds and mass transit? This is how.

For those on the go, especially in March 2020, a few tweaks to your normal traveling behavior may make all the difference. We’re off to London and Paris mid-month and will be taking more taxis and car services than usual. You should too. That’s why we’ve just updated all of our City-Extras pages (found through the menu bar of our website) with great taxi cab clues. Even for the avid traveler, our tips will be a good refresher so that you can hit the ground running, so to speak. 

Happy travels, Dean and Andie
