We’re all a bit rusty when it comes to travel. Since we’re so out of practice, and such seismic shifts have occurred, here are some things to keep in mind.
Research Health Guidelines
Do your research and ensure that you are up to speed with local, regional and national health guidelines for your destination.
Pack Your PPE
Even if you’ve been vaccinated and have no symptoms of infection, research indicates you could still pass COVID on to others if you’ve been exposed to it. So stock up on face masks, gloves, face shields, and hand sanitizers.
Check Refund Policies
Look for flexibility in booking policies from airlines, hotels and tour operators. With things changing all the time, you’ll want to read the fine print regarding cancellations and refunds.
Confirm Your Flight
Flight cancellations are more common than ever, so be sure and re-confirm both your departing and return flights.
Arrive Early to the Airport
You’ll want to avoid long lines at check-in desks and security screening points.
Book a Clean Room
Ask your accommodation about their cleaning practices before booking, many should have details of their protocols on their websites.
Get the Right Travel Insurance
In response to the current situation, many providers have revised their coverage, so select your policy carefully.
Have an Emergency Plan
Be prepared in case you need hospital treatment or need to quarantine suddenly while traveling. Do your research and formulate your plan in advance.
