There is no denying that this year has certainly been a strange one. But while it seems like we have been over the worse of it, we do face a new normal when it comes to living life and doing things that we want to do such as travel. However, with things getting back to normal it might be time to think about making some travel plans moving forward. So how can you embrace travel when it comes to the new normal? With that in mind, here are some of the things to think about.
Get tested before you go away
One of the first things you may need to consider doing before you travel now is getting a covid test before you go. Some countries may even have this as part of their guidelines before you can even enter the country, and it can also help to avoid quarantine periods now with rules and regulations changing. You could look at getting a private corona test booked in to help you get the assurance you need. Not just for making travel possible but also some reassurance for yourself as well that you are negative when you do travel.
Check guidelines before travelling
Things are changing all of the time, and some countries have different guidance and laws in place than others. For example, some countries may be placing a ban on the service of alcoholic drinks after a certain time, or have put curfews in place for early closing of some establishments. Other countries may have laws in place where a face mask must be worn at all times unless eating and drinking. Checking the guidance beforehand can help you to be prepared and also pack anything necessary such as more face masks.
Think about planning your trip
A great tip before you start travelling would be to plan your trip as best you can. This means thinking about all of the places you want to visit and even the restaurants you may want to eat in. This is because social distancing may mean that there are limited numbers allowed in an establishment or tourist attraction at any given time. Booking ahead means you won’t have to worry about a wasted trip and being disappointed. It will also enable you to make the most of your holiday and time away. After all, it is one of those things that many people have missed doing this year.
Be aware of changes to regulations
Finally, it is worth remembering that gulf in ace and regulations can change with very little notice given. One minute you could be travelling to a location where you don’t have to quarantine when you return, the next moment it might be added to the list where you have to stay at home when you return. Checking regularly can help you to better prepare. Plus it is always worth ensuring that your travel insurance as covid protection so that you are covered in the event of any unforeseen cancellations or changes that need to be made.
Let’s hope these tips help you to embrace travel with the new normal.
