Airports take measures

In order to help travelers make informed choices wherever possible, I will keep up to date with the travel advice, progress and current status of the outbreak in the coming week or weeks in this blog. I consult three trustworthy sources daily. I will continue to state the sources as well as possible, as far as possible.

Current travel advice from government

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is, of course, the most reliable source of travel advice. To make it easier for you, have listed below the most important official travel advice pages with direct links to the government website.

No reason to panic

In different backpacker groups on Facebook, I see a number of messages coming from people who have already canceled their trip. In most cases, this is not at all necessary.

So read well first, then make an informed choice.

Cancel travel or return?

Do you still want to cancel your trip or, in connection with the Coronavirus, do you want to return to the Netherlands as soon as possible? You can then always try to recover or reimburse your travel costs through your travel insurance. Not one policy is the same and it may be that such calamities fall within your policy or fall outside it. Call or email your travel insurer and ask about your covera

Stay informed of flight changes?

Are you flying via China or another Asian country and want to be kept informed of your flight status? Tell your airline proactively then indicate your flight number. Ask for SMS updates when changes occur if you have not already turned them on. Most airlines will send SMS updates during calamities such as these free of charge.
