UPDATE – 11/06/2020 – COVID-19 AND TRAVEL – Travel deferral fees waiver period extended to 31 August 2020
It has been some time since our last update, as we’ve weathered the storm together with all Australians over the last few months. The curve has been well and truly flattened, and a lengthy period of isolation has given Aussies a positive outlook to the easing of restrictions in the near future, when we can all return to our normal lives of work and play. Although it remains a strange world we see right now, already we can see borders reopening domestically, and hopefully internationally soon as we move towards a concept of “safe travel bubbles”. Similarly, Japan too has begun to ease domestic travel restrictions, and has voiced a desire to open a reciprocal safe travel path with Australia, being two of the least affected nations.
Like all Australians, we haven’t simply been sitting back these past few months. We’ve been working in earnest, to grow in all the ways that matter, to provide you with new and fascinating ways to explore Japan and other select regions around the world. We can’t wait to show you what we have in store.
In the interim, while international borders remain closed, we have extended our deferral fee waiver period for travel departing from now to the end of August 2020, with credits applicable for travel departing before the end of 2021. We will continue to assess these waiver periods moving forward, and hope to provide the best outcome for everyone, one of fulfilling your adventure, holiday, and relaxation wishes as soon as humanly possible!
Until next time, ki wo tsukete, mata ne!
