Destinations Trying to Lure You Back


A growing number of countries are doing just about anything to lure you back in the wake of Covid-19.

Cancun will give you two free nights of hotel for every two paid and even refund the airfare for one plane ticket — so you can bring a buddy or significant other with you.

In Geneva, the Swiss are offering 65% discounts on hotel packages and city experiences.

One casino owner gave away more than 1,000 free flights to Las Vegas recently, and some resorts are starting to include an insurance policy that actually covers pandemics. That policy is becoming a real selling point.
