"An insightful and detailed account of the pandemic and its impact on the global travel industry. In a situation which was (and still is) constantly evolving, the book presents an historical timeline of events, and how these changed the face of consumer travel, possibly forever. Leisure & business travel, airlines, events, and attractions: all are analyzed comprehensively. How did the industry respond, what lessons were learned and what are the predictions for the future?" -Debbie Marshall, Silver Marketing Association At the end of 2019, COVID-19 spread rapidly around the world to become a global pandemic. Tourism and hospitality sectors were particularly hard hit with a virtual halt to travel, internally and across borders, with constantly changing rules intended to restrict movement and safeguard travelers. Throughout this period, we have tracked reactions by people, health advisors, and politicians worldwide, as infection rates and deaths from the virus rose or fell dramatically. We explore how travel and tourism have been affected, both leisure and business travel, safeguards introduced to protect people and the planet, and whether this has resulted in permanent change to the way we travel in the future. For many within the industry, it has been an opportunity to review every aspect of global travel and to define a 'new normal' for the future.

The analyses includes assessments of the impacts on hotels, business travel, leisuretravel, tourist destinations, casinos, college towns, cruises, road travel, international travel, and more.

This comprehensive book focuses on how the COVID-19 pandemic is transforming travel and tourism, globally. Despite the devastation caused by COVID-19, authors argue that within the ongoing crisis, there is also an opportunity to positively transform the tourism sector in ways that contribute to a more hopeful future for tourism practitioners, tourists and host communities. As the world emerges from the shadow of COVID-19 there will not be a return to the "normal". Rather, the volume shares a vision of global transformation that is driven at least in part by the changing ways people in the post-COVID-19 era may travel and encounter each other and their environments. Individual chapters explore topics such as: regenerative economies, transformational travel, critical perspectives on pandemics and tourism, sustainable development and resilience post-COVID-19, re-discovering and re-localising tourism, global (im)mobilities, transforming tourism management, as well as new value systems for travel and tourism including the chance to strengthen social equity and social justice as tourism returns after COVID-19. In this edited volume, a series of senior and emerging scholars engage with debates on how to best contribute to more substantial, meaningful, and positive planetary shifts within the tourism industry. The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of the journal Tourism Geographies.

At this moment in time, when the world is only just beginning to recover from the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the research in this book makes for essential reading. It will serve to help re-establish confidence and reduce anxiety in business and leisure travellers who are planning to embark on new travel experiences in a world impacted by longer-lasting armed conflicts, increased global violence, and higher frequencies of natural disasters. This book blends in-depth academic research around global risk mitigation with unique perspectives on business and leisure travel safety, narrated by authors who have extensive knowledge of security and risk mitigation systems. Each page contains easy-to-follow advice for domestic and international travel, but differs from other books, in that it addresses the ‘hard’ issues of travel safety (such as theoretical research around risk mitigation), in lieu of setting the focus solely on the ‘soft’ issues (like itinerary planning) which tend to be the focus of many travel publications today. Moreover, unique to this book is an extreme travel section adapted to business and leisure travellers, which makes for compelling reading and deals with kidnapping, risk mitigation and contingency planning. It incorporates the real-life experiences of one of the authors, who survived torture and abduction, and whose experiences now inform pre-deployment training for Australian Defence Force personnel for operations in armed conflict. This book blends the female and male voice into a narrative that combines the perspectives of professional security experts with common sense travel advice. The research that has gone into this book is essential reading for anyone who intends to embark on business or leisure travel, either in their own country or overseas, or who is interested in studying travel from an academic viewpoint.

In the past few days, the health sector around the world is struggling to cope with the pandemic caused by the corona virus. The outbreak began in Wuhan city in central China. It has affected every aspect of life, disrupting all our daily routines. And I received a lot of messages and calls asking about "How can I be safe while I'm traveling?" My friends, they traveled for days before the World Health Organization (WHO) announced the corona virus pandemic on January 31, 2020. Then people who came back from China also asked me, or went to forums and shared a lot of anxiety and confusion. And believe me, there are millions of people around the world who have been traveling at this time. They are also having worries, questions that do not know where to find answers from qualified people. So, I decided to take the time to write this e-book to share the following three main contents for those who have been traveling during the corona virus pandemic: 1. Basic information about corona virus: Origin, transmission, symptoms, how to know if you have corona virus? 2. Important notes for people traveling through an epidemic area to protect themselves. 3. Suggest official information sources from reputable health organizations that travelers can refer to. Sincerely thank you. Dr. Timothy Zahar Mail: [email protected]
