For a while there, all travel was halted around the world to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. This meant that budding explorers such as yourself were forced to stay put and cancel any travel plans you may have had. However, now that restrictions have been lifted in places, traveling the world is something that you can consider doing again.
Travel Tips During Pandemic
You may (understandably) be feeling nervous about traveling, but if you do the right research, it’s totally possible!
Take a look at these clever travel tips during pandemic to continue to travel the world during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Get your vaccinations!
One thing that many people avoid when traveling is getting their vaccinations. This is usually because they’re rather expensive, and can have adverse side effects that are less than desirable.
However, now more than ever, it’s imperative to keep your physical health in peak condition. Research each area you plan on visiting to see if you need to have any vaccinations and get them done!
Remember to book yourself in with a doctor or nurse in plenty of time, as it can be difficult to get an appointment as and when you want it.
Consider alternative methods of travel
Planes may not be flying in and out of many places at the moment due to restrictions set by each government and even if they are, it’s quite risky traveling by plane right now!
Considering alternative methods of travel such as turning your vacation into a road trip by driving to your destination, or maybe even a French Riviera yacht charter will help you maintain social distancing as much as possible.
If you’re choosing the road trip option, be sure to have your car or van serviced to prevent the chances of a breakdown in a foreign place!
You should also research any permits or insurance you may need for entering certain countries in a foreign vehicle.
Research isolation periods
Each country and region will have different isolation periods for you to consider upon arrival. If you’re planning on traveling to multiple destinations, it’s important to factor in isolation periods to your travel plans. Adhering to regional guidelines is imperative, or you could risk a hefty fine and more importantly, the risk of catching coronavirus.
It’s also a good idea to research the severity of cases in the region you’re planning to travel to. This will help avoid being caught up in a lockdown somewhere unfamiliar!
Stock up on PPE
If you’re planning on traveling for longer periods of time, you’ll need to think about the amount of personal protection equipment (PPE) you’ll need to pack.
You can buy face masks in bulk online.
If you’re choosing to go for reusable face masks, remember to think about how you’re going to wash them. Does your accommodation have facilities that will allow you to do this? If not, it’s probably best to opt for disposable masks.
Traveling will never be the same again, at least for the time being anyway. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the wonders of our world!
