Covid-19 has irreparably changed travel. 

Government website SafeTravel says visiting every country except the Cook Islands will be risky and advises to avoid them.  

Dunedin-based Vincent George Travel believes leisure travel will be a while off yet, while repatriation flights dominate.   

Travel agent Rosann Connolly George told Tim Dower while there are Covid-19 provisions available in travel insurance, people need to read the small print. 

“Nothing will cover a border restriction or a sudden lockdown, or if you are in a country and all of a sudden you are unable to leave.”
