The COVID-19 pandemic greatly impacted our lives and has changed any sense of normalcy we may have had at the start of 2020. With lockdowns and social distancing mandates, traveling was made impossible. However, as cases started decreasing, international and national restrictions have slowly and steadily changed, and traveling has gradually started again with certain conditions.
Staying in our homes 24/7 has made all of us long for a getaway from our hectic lives. Here’s how you can plan a post-COVID travel itinerary:
Plan Your Visit in Advance
Keeping an eye on existing flights and advice and restrictions within the place you want to visit is essential. This doesn’t necessarily mean booking a flight in advance. But instead, being organized by monitoring flights and restrictions. You can research the right hotels and travel trips, entry visas, travel insurance, updating your passports, and the foreign currency you may require.
This pandemic has taught us that it’s essential to be flexible in your planning and give room to the unexpected. You should be flexible with where you’re staying, where you’re going, and making sure to avoid common areas that increase the risk of exposing yourself to more people. This means you should be prepared for the unexpected and flexible in adapting to your plan to unforeseen changes.
Make Sure to Check Travel Rules and Restrictions
Moreover, staying updated on lockdown statuses, country-wise policies, local and international travel rules, restrictions, and the total number of cases to avoid any exposure to Covid-19.
Visit Your Local Cities
Due to travel bans and restrictions, you should consider visiting cities within your own country first. This will allow you to travel sooner than if you were to go to other countries and to go to more places at a time. Doing so will also allow you to support local businesses that suffered from the pandemic.
Make sure to keep hand sanitizer, liquid soap, disinfectant wipes, and tap water to avoid exposing yourself to bacteria and viruses. Washing your hands should be accessible and easy.
