Check out these 6 traveler tips you need to know to avoid COVID restrictions in 2022, and hit the road again!
While it’s true that some Covid restrictions are still in place, the reality is that there’s light at the end of the tunnel. As of this writing, a large number of countries and cities are opening to travelers again.
So, if you intend to start traveling again let us show you some of the most effective tips and recommendations to avoid headaches, and enjoy a vacation, covid-free!
1. Get Vaccinated
It may be the most obvious one, but you wouldn’t believe how easy it is to avoid complications with a single shot.
You will get a card when you are vaccinated unless you opt for the digital Health Passport. Keep it at hand, because many airports and hotels can ask you for it. And if you need it, don’t forget to take your booster shot!
2. Stay Flexible With Your Plans
Being flexible with your travel plans might mean that you arrive a day later than planned, or have to change up your route. This isn’t ideal, but being able to go with the flow and make changes on the fly is likely going to be far better than having to cancel your whole trip (or heading off half-heartedly without energy for exploration).
3. Look For Hotels With Flexible Cancellation Policies
Cancellation policies are more important than ever before. Making sure you can get your money back if something comes up is one less thing to worry about. It’s also nice to know that if an emergency arises, you’ll have some wiggle room on your vacation plans. If you need help finding the best option, give us a call! We’ll be glad to help you!
4. Get Travel Insurance
It’s not just your cancellations, medical costs, and lost baggage that a good travel insurance policy will cover, though. It can also payout if you get stuck at the airport because of bad weather or you miss a connecting flight.
Make sure your policy covers at least these things:
- Medical coverage
- Personal liability coverage
- Additional fee coverage (if travelers are forced to cancel their trip due to illness or injury)
- Baggage protection
5.Double Check Restrictions At Your Destination
Most destinations around the world have different laws and regulations. This can be easily overlooked when you’re traveling, but it’s important to remember that you should research your destination’s local covid laws before you travel.
6. Bring A Power Bank
Most airports, no matter the season, find themselves overbooked and underpowered. In other words, there’s never a plug when you need one. To make matters worse, most planes only have a few charging outlets—so this tip is doubly important if you want to maximize your time in the air.
Travel helps us learn new things about ourselves and others. It makes us happy and healthy. It can change our lives in ways that we never imagined possible.
And we’re going to feel like we’ve been missing out on something great if we don’t take advantage of it now that travel is returning to normal (or as close to normal as is possible). Get vaccinated, get insured, and stay flexible with your dates—and then let the world be your oyster!
