UPDATE: The decision of the Federal Government of 03.03.2021
The existing decisions of the Federal Chancellor and the heads of the federal state governments remain valid unless this decision stipulates otherwise. The federal states will adapt their state ordinances accordingly and extend them until 28 March 2021.
[…] The possibility of private meetings with friends, relatives and acquaintances will be extended from 8 March: private meetings of one’s own household with another household are now possible, but limited to a maximum of five persons. Children up to 14 years of age are not counted. Couples are considered as one household.
In regions with a 7‐day incidence of less than 35 new infections per week, the possibilities for private gatherings can be extended to one’s own household and two other households with a maximum of ten persons together. Children up to 14 years of age are excluded.
If the 7‐day incidence per 100,000 inhabitants rises to over 100 on three consecutive days in a federal state or region, the rules that applied until 7 March will come into force again from the second following working day (emergency brake). After that, the possibility of private gatherings will again be limited to one’s own household and one other person. Children up to 14 years of age are not counted. […]
[…] 6. The government and the federal states continue to urgently appeal to all citizens to refrain from non‐essential travel within the country and also abroad. They strongly point out that entry into the country from foreign risk areas is obligatory and that quarantine is compulsory for a period of 10 days after return. An early termination of the quarantine is only possible by a negative test taken on the fifth day after entry at the earliest. Due to the longer duration of infection by virus variants as of 8 March, which has now been described in many cases, this expressly does not apply to return journeys from virus variant areas. Here, a quarantine of 14 days must be strictly observed. In addition, limited transport options are to be expected when returning from virus‐variant areas. […]
Here you can find the complete resolution of the Federal Government (in german).
After the first opening steps in the area of schools and hairdressers as well as individual further openings in the federal states have already been completed, further opening steps will now follow. We have prepared these for you in a graphic. Please note that this is only available in German!
2. Which options do I have if there are travel restrictions in 2021 again?
RENT AND TRAVEL also offers you a solution for this. Up to 14 days before the start of the rental period, you have the option of rebooking to a later rental period free of charge. A prerequisite for this goodwill is the existence of exit, contact or travel restrictions within Germany or your federal state at the time of commencement of the rental period. Replacement bookings can only be made in the same category, for the same rental period and with the originally booked station. This option applies to all new bookings until further notice. Surcharges due to other seasonal conditions will be charged accordingly.
4. Does my travel cancellation insurance cover any cancellation costs?
A travel cancellation insurance usually only covers you if you are unable to start a journey due to an unforeseeable illness. If you cancel your holiday for fear of illness, the insurance does not pay. Fear of possible infection or a high risk of infection at the destination do not constitute an insured event.
