Many states have already started tourism activities and are welcoming travellers from all across the nation. With the global pandemic cases going down for some countries, it will be a surprise that traveling internationally is also allowed shortly. Saying that we advise you to limit your travel activities for now, but if it is essential then, we have a list of things you can take care of to ensure a safe travel experience. See it as the ultimate travel checklist during the pandemic.
1. Pack Hygiene Essentials
Carrying a sanitizer along with you is more important than carrying your phone these days, and the same must be remembered during travel. Not just a sanitizer, but a disinfectant spray bottle, personal hygiene and grooming products and a pack of gloves and tissues are an absolute must.
2. Pack Your Medicines and First Aid
This point should be remembered during regular travel also, but during this pandemic, it becomes a necessity. You can’t risk getting sick during this time, so no matter how small your problem is, you have to take your medicines along. Also, carry a first aid kit and medicines for common problems to save yourself a trip to the risky pharmacies and hospitals.
3. Only the Essentials
The pandemic is not a time when you can travel with a separate bag for all your different accessories. No matter what reason you are travelling, make sure that you are not carrying too much stuff that might cause problems for you and your fellow passengers. Also, letting others touch your extra baggage isn’t the most ideal option now, so pack only what you need.
4. Research, Plan and Stick to the Plan
You can’t go with the flow this pandemic season, no matter what is the reason behind your travel, you must ensure that you have a plan about where you’ll stay, eat and visit to ensure optimum safety. Unplanned and reckless behaviour can be troublesome to your safety. So, make a plan and stick to it, especially when you are on a road trip.
5. Food on the Go
It might be a good idea to carry homemade food along with you if you are going on a short journey. This might help you to prevent yourself from the dangers of lying in restaurants all across the country. Also, your mom would be ecstatic that you want her homemade food on the go.
These are the five checkpoints that you must sign off before you even think about boarding that flight. Please try and limit travel plans and if you can’t have safe travel by taking all necessary precautions.
