As you know, I’ve visited many Palladium Hotel Group and TRSHotels over the last few months. You also probably know that during my recent interview on Channel 4 in Jacksonville, I mentioned the new CDC requirement for international travel.
Here’s a recent press release issued by the Palladium Hotel Group,
“PALLADIUM HOTEL GROUP RESPONDS TO NEW CDC TRAVEL GUIDELINES BY PROVIDING ON-SITE COVID-19 TESTS FOR ALL TRAVELERS.
PALLADIUM HOTEL GROUP® is committed to redefine the travel experience by taking proactive steps to ensure the satisfaction of our guests.
Starting Jan 26th, 2021, the CDC requires a negative COVID-19 test to all air passengers entering the United States. As you may be aware, a similar requirement is already in place for travelers returning to the U.K., Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and Colombia.
In response to the need of the market to continue supporting the traveler during these trying times, we are pleased to announce the inclusion of COVID-19 antigen testing on-property at no cost (until April 4th, 2021) to guests traveling to the U.S. or to any other country with similar requirements.
What if you test positive?
If a guest receives a positive test while on property that prevents departure, our Stay Safe Plus FREE Health Insurance™ will enter into effect. Please visit our website to learn more about our White Book Health & Safety Protocols™ and our Stay Safe Plus FREE Health Insurance™ which will cover expenses related to COVID19 to all guests regardless the channel they used to book our properties.
This insurance is offered by Palladium Hotel Group® completely free of charge for 1 Year from the moment we re-open each property, while we navigate with this pandemic. This is an industry-leading initiative we are offering to help our Guests to travel with confidence. It is in effect from the moment of Check-in until the Check-Out and may cover up to $100,000 Euros* or its equivalent in US dollars in expenses associated with COVID19 infection, such as medical fees, medicine from the medical care provided, as well as hospitalization expense and ambulance expenses requested by a doctor; medical transfers of patients; emergency transfer to hospital; extension of stay; repatriation; driver services for medical reasons; return of companions and more.
This insurance is valid for 12 months, starting from the date the hotels were re-opened.
On-site property testing will be administered by certified labs and hospitals in partnership with our in-house Doctors committed to provide a first-rate health care service for travelers staying at any of our destinations in Mexico, Jamaica, Dominican Republic.
