We have all been through a lot haven’t we since February, 2020? It has been a roller coaster of emotions running through us all during this COVID19 pandemic. We felt isolated, we couldn’t see family and friends, our lives took a halt, our travel plans were put on hold. We have all been affected in some way, shape and form and some were not so lucky unfortunately.
The travel industry has taken a dive, but things are starting to look up in the travel industry with all-inclusive resort vacations, cruises, flights, hotels, and more. I am here to give you travel tips during the COVID19 pandemic and what you should know. Here they are:
01 — Before you book your trip, it is always a good idea to do extensive research on PCR COVID tests that could be required before and after travel, check to see proof of vaccine requirements, and those who have received mixed doses of vaccines should check if that is permitted. Especially if you are thinking of going on a cruise.
02 — Those who received 2 different vaccine doses are allowed in some destinations. As time goes on officials will recognize mixed vaccines and those individuals will be allowed access of travel to destinations. It is good to always verify that.
03 — Allow yourself a lot of extra time to be early at airports and cruise ports. It is always good to arrive 4 hours before a flight. Line ups could be long and going through security screening and presenting your covid vaccine records can take time. Nowadays, when you go on a cruise, they recommend you to book your flight the day before your cruise and arrive at the cruise terminal very early.
04 — Have all your documents, vaccine records, PCR Test results, passports and everything ready. Purchase a document/ticket/passport holder where you can fit everything nice and perfectly. Always present your documents in a proper manner. Make sure the documents are not crumpled up and they are in perfect condition. Have them ready to present in your hand.
05 — Patience is key. Entitlement is not the way. Be respectful, obey and stay calm. At airports and cruise terminals, and at resorts, it is important to show good manners, and to treat people with dignity and kindness. Airport, Cruise, Resort and hotel workers will and are doing their best and working hard to make sure that you have a great time and have a stress-free time during these difficult times. Nowadays kindness and respect go a long way and to demonstrate that on a daily basis and always is very important.
06 — Always check out government travel sites to obtain information, news and updates.
07 — Travel, health, cancellation, baggage insurance is a must. Always purchase insurance for a peace of mind. It is very important.
