UPDATE: The decision of the Federal Government of 22.03.2021
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 18 April 2021.
[…] 2. In view of the exponentially increasing infection dynamics, the emergency brake agreed in the last decision for all incidence‐dependent opening steps („If the 7‐day incidence per 100,000 inhabitants rises to over 100 on three consecutive days in the country or region, the rules that applied until 7 March shall come into force again from the second following working day (emergency brake)“) must be implemented consistently.
For the agreed opening steps it was agreed as a prerequisite that in stable or declining 7‐day incidence in the country or region of less than 100 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants. Additional openings in the case of exponential growth of new infection figures are therefore ruled out even below this incidence threshold. […]
[…] 9. The Government and the Federal States continue to appeal urgently to all citizens to refrain from non‐essential travel within the country and also abroad – also with regard to the upcoming Easter holidays. They emphatically 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 5th day after entry at the earliest. Due to the longer duration of infection by virus variants, which has been described in many cases since 8 March, 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 possibilities are to be expected when returning from virus‐variant areas. The occurrence of various Covid 19 variants and their worldwide spread have shown that cross‐border travel must continue to be limited to the absolute minimum necessary.

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 7 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.
