* In the Travel News, Hawaii is expecting a big summer with lots of visitors – but vaccine/testing requirements remain in place for most. USTOA, one of the country’s largest tour operator groups, says despite limited cruising, Alaska is the most inquired about/booked destination for the summer, with Arizona, Florida, Wyoming and Utah close behind, as travelers continue to prefer beaches and wide open spaces in the US.

* In our Smarter Traveler segment, Mark talks about how he got caught in the exact car rental trap he warned listeners about last week; we explain The Jones Act, which is keeping cruise ships from going to Alaska this year; and more countries, and perhaps soon Hawaii, add themselves to the “you must be vaccinated to come here” list.

* We invite you to call and share your favorite travel memory with mom.

* Tauck Tours, America’s oldest and thought by many to be the finest tour company in the country, gives us an update on their summer and fall seasons. Their products include river cruises, land tours and family-themed vacations.



Highlights



* No vacation without a vaccination

* Explaining the Jones Act – Cruise ships to Alaska

* Tauck Tours and Vacations

* Take Me Out to the Ballgame

* Clear – a pre-check program

* Registration for Clear

* Travelers put vaccination high on their list
