discover the world

A La Carte Travel is closely monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 and remains in close communication with our international partners in affected areas. We are also closely following the guidance of the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the World Health Organization (WHO) as they react and evolve their policies to contain and prevent the disease. 

Due to Virginia's current "stay-at-home" orders, all A La Carte Travel staff is working remotely and does not have access to our office phone line. If you have any questions regarding your son or daughter's trip abroad for 2020, please email info@alacartetravel.com for up-to-date information regarding our cancellation policy and questions surrounding travel insurance. 

A La Carte Travel has safely and successfully addressed similar situations in the past and has navigated hundreds of travelers through major disruptions, including the SARS outbreak in 2003, the H1-N1 outbreak in 2009, environmental events such as the volcanic ash in Iceland that shut down air travel in Europe in 2010, and safety issues such as the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack in France in 2015. The safety and health of our travelers is our first priority and we will continue to provide updates as the situation evolves.
