How to Travel Safely During COVID-19

Life is all about making unforgettable memories and making the precious moments count. However, the pandemic has changed our lives and traveling drastically. The global pandemic has given us all the urge to travel and get out of the house. Although we have come a long way since the start of COVID-19, we still need to be careful and mindful when traveling. Here’s some tips on how to travel safely during these times to ease your mind and help you prepare for your next adventure!

Be Knowledgeable of Regulations

Restrictions vary from location and are constantly changing so it’s important to stay up to date with them. Make sure to research local regulations and guidelines in the location where you are planning to travel in regards to COVID-19. This will help you be prepared and understand potential risks.

Plan Your Trip Carefully

Nowadays, traveling requires more careful planning. Do your research before you travel so you know what to expect when you arrive, and this can help you feel better about traveling. Consider taking a trip that is simple and direct. Avoid people by means of transportation. For example, you could take a road trip. Traveling by car during COVID-19 will likely be the safest, so look for destinations within driving distance. 

Picking a Location

When planning out where to travel instead of heading to a crowded city, consider going to a place that’s less busy with lots of outdoor activities. Outdoor activities are a great way to get out and get a change of scenery while still maintaining a safe distance from others. Walks along the beach, a day hike in the dunes or mountains, a bike ride along the lake, these are all some great low risk activities. Plus, you will be amazed by how nature can recharge you when you allow yourself to take a moment to slow down from everyday life. 

Choosing Where to Stay

Along with picking a location wisely, it’s important to find lodging that will safely fit your accommodations. Make sure the vacation home you choose has essential features like a full kitchen, so you can avoid dining out and enjoy a home cooked meal with those you love. Make sure the vacation home is also professionally cleaned and managed to CDC standards.

From disinfecting the doorknobs/light switches to cleaning all surfaces and changing air filters.
