Come to New Jersey for Autumn Fun!

Vacationing in New Jersey can be a bit safer than many of our coastal and mountainous locations in the USA largely because Covid-19 numbers are consistently trending down. New Jersey remains a great place for family fun, but before packing your bags watch the latest travel advisories from state government, and check on private concierge options with Air General Traveler Services.

Under the 14-day quarantine travel advisory announced by the Governors of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, individuals traveling to/returning to New Jersey from states with increasing rates of COVID-19 are advised to self-quarantine for 14 days. This includes travel by train, bus, car, plane, etc. The self-quarantine is voluntary, but compliance is expected.

Whether you’re planning a hotel, casino stay, golf weekend, outdoor adventure, or a day at the beach, New Jersey has plenty to offer. Hotels, bed and breakfast and other overnight options have increased their cleaning schedules which can affect check in and out times, so be sure to confirm with your accommodation provider. https://www.visitnj.org/

Before winning the BIG Jackpot at the casino, know what you should expect regarding dining options and restrictions. New Jersey has reinstated provisions for indoor dining with strict guidelines and sanitary requirements. The casinos could be shutting down certain tables or slot machine areas throughout the day for cleaning so make sure you plan your winning strategy accordingly.


Reservations for indoor or outdoor dining are highly recommended to limit wait times. For take-out dining, try ordering online or thru a mobile app for discounts and to limit contact through currency transactions.


The great outdoors provides a wonderful way to connect with nature and shake off all the worries of high contact surfaces in our daily lives. https://www.mountaincreek.com/

Before returning home enjoy some of the fresh produce from one of the “garden state” farmers markets! https://njmom.com/restaurants/list-farmers-markets-new-jersey-2020/


If your plans call for travel by air or by train, consider contacting Air General Traveler Services for a private Greeter to enjoy a seamless, contactless airport experience to ease concerns associated with current travel regulations.

Let Us Keep Your Items Safe While Going Through TSA Security


August 17, 2020

While air travel is still challenging at this time, there are things that can be done to make your journey easier. That’s where Air General Traveler Services can help. Our Greeters stay up to date on the latest airport changes and restrictions and they do everything to make your travel easier from knowing if there is a lounge open in your particular terminal, finding  available food options and having amenities on hand for you to use. These amenities include individual hand sanitizer wipes, disposable foot socks (so you don’t need to walk through security barefoot if you must remove your shoes) and reusable bags to protect your carry-on items as they go through the TSA process.

“Plastic trays at airport security have more respiratory viruses than public toilets” according to recently published research. Testing determined that security trays were found to pose the highest potential risk of viral contamination at airports. According to the study, as the trays are used by virtually all passengers, “they have the potential to be especially problematic if a severe pathogen with an indirect transmission mechanism were to pose a threat for international spread.”

Since we don’t know if the security trays are not routinely disinfected, our Greeters will supply you with complimentary disposable linen bags into which you can place your large purse or briefcase, or smaller bags into which you can empty your pocket items thus avoiding any of your belongings touching the tray surfaces. Simply dispose of the bag after completion of security formalities.

Let Air General Traveler Services Greeters help you travel as safely and hygienically as possible!  Contact us to arrange dedicated and personalized traveler assistance.

Air General Greeters are in full compliance with all Covid-19 safety guidance. Our air and land travel concierge agents wear masks, follow health, hygiene and distancing protocols and scope out amenities in advance of passenger arrival at the airport or train station. We provide passengers with meet and greet travel concierge services for a “touchless experience” to the extent possible.
