Travel Tips

Travel Safety at Your Fingertips!
May 5, 2021

We are seeing the light at the end of a (very long) tunnel.  Vaccines are rolling out, restaurants are opening at higher capacities, and the travel world is opening.  We know there are many road warriors out there who used to travel for work almost every week and are itching to get out of their home offices and back on the road. However, we are not completely out of the woods yet, and it is important to continue to stay safe and vigilant.  Luckily, one of our partners, Deem, has a solution for making travel as safe as possible.

Etta, powered by Deem, has a Travel SafetyCheck system that gives travelers access to health and safety information for their flight, hotel location and rental car and allows them to reduce their risk and improve safety while traveling.  See below for a how-to video about this program:

Air SafetyCheck

Deem partners with Routehappy, and Etta displays accurate, relevant, and detailed airline health and safety information on the flight search results page. You will be able to see airline specific Covid-19 testing requirements, mask requirements, blocked seats, clean air circulation and enhanced cabin cleaning.  The information within Etta is updated every 24 hrs. so travelers and Travel Managers can be sure the information is up to date and accurate.Neighborhood SafetyCheck

Deem partners with global safety platform, GeoSure.  This integration into Etta allows travelers quick access to view health and safety information for cities and neighborhoods where their potential hotel is located.  In addition to the Covid-19 map, travelers can access neighborhood safety assessment scores, in seven safety categories:  Nighttime safety, Physical Safety, Theft, Basic Freedoms, Health and Medical, LGBTQ+ safety and Women’s safety.Deem also provides a Covid-19 map which gives data about the number of Covid cases broken down by country, state, and county. When looking for a hotel, the number of options can often be overwhelming, so SafetyCheck allows our customers to have peace of mind when making their decision.Car SafetyCheck

Car rental companies have implemented very rigorous cleaning and sanitizing mandates to ensure their cars are clean and safe for travelers.  Within Etta, you are now able to access the cleaning protocols provided by all rental car companies.Many of our customers are already using Deem as their online booking tool, and will be able to seamlessly access this added information when making travel arrangements.  We trust these features will serve our clients well as they venture back out into the world.  We have a team of advisors who are here, when you are ready.
