From the Paraguayan Association of Travel Agencies and Tour Operators (Asatur), they state that although the emergence of the new omicron variant of COVID-19 has been frightening and the risks of expansion are not ruled out, trips in general have not been canceled, and instead if it occurs globally, This is due to climatic factors.
Likewise, they pointed out that the measure to continue the course of life and activities is necessarily vaccination, which would be like the response to what happened with the epidemic, and that in fact in 2021, there was already a recovery in sales.
“People are not canceling Omicron flights, the entire northern hemisphere, in the US there are cancellations because of the weather that happens every year. What is essential here is understanding that a vaccine is the answer,” said Asatur Vice President Marta Chamorro, in contact with 650 A.m.

In Israel, the fourth dose has already begun. “It’s very hard for the world to be the same if we don’t want to be vaccinated,” said Chamorro, who urged people to get vaccinated.
In terms of sales, Chamorro emphasized that they bounced back with more passengers traveling, and that in 2021 they were already seeing changes, so they can say that they are much better, because they are also trained and ready for that.
Regarding travel assistance insurance, it was mentioned that all credit cards generally have this service, but they do not always have the coverage one needs and this is where the interested party has to know what kind of coverage is offered.
It’s a service that’s been available for years with credit card companies, and it’s coverage that costs $50,000-$60,000, which should carry all packages, they have to have the terms in writing just to be sure if it’s covering COVID-19 or not, he confirmed.
