As the global economy begins to recover and more people are ready to travel, many are wondering how to safely travel without putting their family and friends at risk. Here are five ways to safely travel in a post-‘Rona world.
- Most airlines are requiring masks during the flight. Bring your own hand sanitizer (not over 3.2 ounces) and bring several types of mask so you can decide which is most comfortable during the flight. Masks which loop behind your ears tend to be good at staying put while walking through the airport terminal, while bandana-type masks tend to be more comfortable for catching some sleep on the flight.
- Road trips are in! Gas up the car and check out the state and national parks near you. Now might be a good time to look into getting an annual pass to visit all the national parks in your region. Click here to find the park nearest you.
- Consider a house rental instead of a hotel. This allows you to explore a new place at your leisure, and not risk running into crowds in the lobby of the hotel. Check with the owner or property manager regarding enhanced cleaning procedures
- Take advantage of the weather this time of year and rent an RV or rough it with tent camping. Social distancing is easier to maintain outdoors than in, and there’s a whole beautiful world waiting for you to discover; it’s closer than you think! There’s nothing quite like s’mores over a campfire to signal that all is right in the world.
- Consider exclusive tours for the travel you’ve always wanted. Many tour operators are now offering private tours to accommodate social distancing. Ask your travel agent if the tour you want is available for just your group. Added bonus – no waiting in line!!
Wherever your travels take you, be sure to read the local regulations before you travel. Click here to see Travel Life Service’s founder Dr. Jasmien Lewis provide tips on how to safely travel during the coronavirus.
