Although things have not yet fully got back to normal within most part of the world due to Coronavirus Pandemic, we still cannot deny the fact that the process of transitioning to normal has already begun within some countries. In fact, for the past couple of weeks we’ve witnessed some countries scaling back few of their restriction and in Italy for instance, people are now allowed to visit bookshops and laundries, while younger students are returning to classrooms in Denmark. Kenya is also moving on the same direction and it is only a matter of time before most countries begin to open up their borders. Now the only question for you as travel enthusiast is how have you prepared yourself to travel when things get back to normal? Here are our five post-covid-19 traveling tips:
1. Plan your bucket list
There is no better time to think about things that you want to accomplish with the rest of your life than now and planning your bucket list should be on top of your traveling agenda during this period. Some of our highly recommend tips for you when planning your travel bucket list include: think about what you want to see, what do you want to do, when do you want to travel and finally how much are you willing to spend.
2. Work with a Travel Agent
After you’ve identified and planned out your travel bucket list, it will be best for to work hand in hand with a Reputable travel agent who will not only advise you on the COVID-19 situation within the destination that you plan to visit but also help you in planning out any additional travel experiences that will help in reducing the risk of worrying and ‘’what if.’’
3. Start Your Reservation Early
As much as there may still be fear among most travels on why they should start booking early, we still advice you to begin making your reservation as far in advance as possible. This will not only give you a chance of getting best rates\offer for a better quality experience but also give you an edge when it comes to making specific requests as well as provide some peace of mind.
4. Take Travel Insurance
The best part of getting a travel insurance is that; it protects you and your trip. However, we highly advice you to understand how some policies have changed since World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus as a pandemic before getting you travel insurance. As a matter of fact, it will be best for you to research and work with a reputable travel insurance who will explain to you on a nutshell on some of their policies on cancellation, abandonment or curtailment claims that are related to the coronavirus.
5. Always keep yourself safe during travel
Finally, always keep yourself safe during travel by following WHO recommendations which include: regularly and thoroughly cleaning your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water, maintain at least 1 meter (3 feet) distance between yourself and other, avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth and finally making sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with face mask, bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately and wash your hands.
Remember safety begins with you!
Cheers & Stay Safe!
