Joel Smiler would rather not miss his 50th wedding anniversary trip to Maui this September. But he’s not sure if it’s still a good idea. He wants to know: Is there such a thing as a safe vacation?
For Smiler, a retired veterinarian, Maui checks a lot of boxes for safety. Hawaii is a domestic destination, and it has reliable air connections and relatively few coronavirus cases. But when Smiler talks about “safe,” he’s not talking just about health. He also wants to recover his money if there’s another covid-19 outbreak.
“My biggest loss would be the condo if we cancel,” he says. “I would lose half of my payment.”
“Is there such a thing as a safe vacation?”
