Like children making lists for Santa, anxious travelers are plotting vacations for the second half of 2021, hoping it will be safe to go by then. Many have already booked. Some are wondering if they’re already too late.

When the calendar changed to a new year, Jack Ezon, co-founder and managing partner of high-end New York travel advisory Embark Beyond, says a deluge of booking requests poured in for summertime trips to Europe. “It’s as if people are asking us for permission to get their lives back,” he says.
