We were planning to fly to Houston and Miami in late April to visit relatives who are even older than we are. Their ages are 88, 90 and 91. Each lives alone. We will see how things are going in May.

Yes! We cancelled our cruise May 9th on Princess out of LA. Sometime later Princess cancelled all their cruises for the next 60 days I think.

We were supposed to travel April 7 to Portugal until Delta suspended all flights in to and out of Europe.
All of the hotels were able to be cancelled up until the end of March so I was able to do so without penalty.

Delta is telling me I must rebook my tickets within one year of the original purchase which is mid July. I am reluctant to do so at this point.

i actually purchased CFAR when I booked the tickets, so hopefully that will take care of any loose ends.

We're currently on the Coral Princess off the coast of Argentina. It has been barred from porting at Puerto Madryn and Montevideo, as it makes its way to Buenos Aires to conclude a 14-day cruise that originated in San Antonio Chile. Essentially all post-cruise travel has been cancelled, and many passengers are scrambling to rebook and make their ways out of Argentina since all flights to the US have also been cancelled.

The airline cancelled our flights to Spain. We're getting our money refunded. The trip will wait.

Things have changed a LOT since ibobi started this on March 9th.

If you have not "changed travel plans due to coronavirus" ... you need to now.

We have a cruise planned for July and I'm pretty sure we'll be cancelling. Final payment is do in a couple weeks so we have to make a decision now.

I'm all over the map, kept one trip, cancelled others.

I kept a scheduled trip to Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama last week and was one step ahead of the virus all the way! All of the attractions and event venues we had planned we were able to see but they closed the day after our visit. ( Grand Ole Opry, The hermitage, US Civil Rights Museum, Sun Studios, Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, US Space and Rocket Museum)

Had a work trip cancelled which would have involved travel to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada ( I'm in CA) but the meeting was cancelled and the day after, Canada closed its borders. Cancelled my youngest sons visit home ( he's in Mississippi) and my other son has canceled a visit home ( he's in the air force and cannot leave Nevada.) I have at least a grand of credit now with Southwest and Delta.

I just cancelled my Baltic cruise today. The cruise isn't until July but final payment is due in two weeks and that's just not going to happen.
