The international travel ban caused by Covid-19 has caused havoc for airlines and the travel industry around the world. Australia and New Zealand have reacted to the coronavirus and suppressed its spread tremendously well compared to many other countries. Both governments have mooted the possibility of an exclusive travel bubble as they seek to find a road out of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Redirecting international travel from both countries to a streamlined two-way approach allows Australia and New Zealand to forecast a safe route to rebuilding the travel industry in light of Covid-19. The implications a travel bubble has on the golf communities in Australia and New Zealand could be significant if the plans go ahead.

A Trans-Tasman Travel Bubble will bring Australia and New Zealand closer together

The travel bubble or any trans-Tasman flights will not take place anytime soon because of safety concerns. The potential for a late-2020, or kickstart to summer travel boost by opening up the travel bubble has cast a ray of hope within the travel industry. The Guardian reported that under the proposed agreement, “more flights would be put on by national airlines, and the need for a two-week quarantine for all arrivals scrapped.”

The potential for exclusivity may be joined by other Pacific countries who have enjoyed relative protection from Covid-19, such as New Caledonia and Fiji. See the trans-Tasman offerings by Voyages.golf. Many Australians and New Zealanders have family and friends living in either country. The travel bubble would see a closer relationship between the old ANZAC siblings.

Planning for the travel bubble

Voyages.golf has created a number of sample golf holiday packages for when the restrictions are lifted:

 

New Zealand

 

Australia

Following Voyages.golf’s article in late May regarding domestic golf travel, the Australian and Pacific exclusive travel bubble will signify a better appreciation for neighbouring countries and states.  The potential travel bubble will only be allowed following rigorous Covid-19 safety precautions and a clean record of transparency by airlines and travellers.
