A new worldwide platform updates travelers about Covid-19 risks in every country

It's difficult to commit to foreign travel when health conditions in individual countries evolve on a daily basis. Travel agents worldwide have been invited to share local information in real time via a free platform from Amex GBT called Travel Vitals.

What is the contamination risk for Covid-19 in Rio de Janeiro? What about when taking the tube in London? The questions plaguing travelers considering foreign travel can be daunting. Responses are now being offered via a dynamic platform sharing entry conditions, health statistics and the risk of contamination in airports, public transportation, airlines and hotels.

The site, Travelvitals.amexgbt.com, updated by tourism professionals, is aimed at travel agents, but travelers may also consult the information for free. It allows agents to be immediately alerted to high-risk travel reservations and to react accordingly.

The platform is also accessible via app and offers a chat function, allowing a more immediate connection between travel agents and travelers.
