Traveling Safely During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The world as we knew it has drastically changed last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and it does not seem to get back on track too soon. It feels like the planet has stood still and we had to reconsider almost every aspect of our hectic lives. Traveling around the world may not be part of your immediate plans, but there might be situations when it becomes a must or when you simply feel the need for a well-deserved getaway. Business or pleasure? No matter the purpose, Green Hope believes that you should always feel safe and enjoy the ride, so here are some tips and tricks to help you experience a pleasant journey.

Plan every aspect ahead

If you bragged about being a go-with-the-flow type of person, we would advise you to take a step back and become more organized. Make a list of the key points of your journey. Ask yourself: where does it start and what is the final destination? Do you need to use airport transportation to get from one point to another? Where and how will you check-in? Will you stop along the way? It is important to answer these questions because this is how you can foresee and avoid many of the obstacles that might come along. If possible, we would advise picking a door-to-door trip and limit any unnecessary contact.

All you need to know about transportation

Exchanging multiple means of transport is not the best idea during these times. If you are required to travel by plane, choose a direct line without layovers. Therefore, you will get in contact with less people, avoid crowded places in airports, and limit your exposure to the virus as much as possible. For your own sake, decide upon a specific airport shuttle to the hotel instead of a taxi ride or public transportation.

Carefully choose your service suppliers.

These are not the times to look for a bargain, so for all your activities, choose a partner that you trust due to their outstanding reputation or because you have worked together in the past and were satisfied with its services. Book your accommodation, your airplane ticket, choose your airport transportation to the hotel or other destinations wisely – opt only for those companies that are responsible and assist you all the way by even providing a contact person in case of emergency. This way, you will reduce the anxiety and feel more at ease knowing that someone has your back. Don’t forget to take out a health insurance policy – hopefully, you will not use it, but it wouldn’t hurt to have it.

Thorough research about local rules and restrictions

"Prepare for the worst, hope for the best!" should be your motto for the journey. Look carefully into the rules and regulations applied to the areas you will visit and be prepared for anything. In most corners of the world, you are required to wear a face mask, so make sure that you bring enough and even a little extra, along with hand wipes and sanitizer. You might also want to look into quarantine areas and avoid them for your own comfort.

Lately, almost everyone has raised the bar on safety by adopting a firm, healthy protocol so choose your airline, your airport shuttle, your hotel room based on this type of high commitment. Remember that preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus is a joint effort and a shared duty, so travel responsibly and make the world a safe place again.
