As the coronavirus pandemic continues to significantly impact a large majority of the world, there are still extremely tight restrictions on travel at this time. However, with some still needing to travel, there are some tips and tricks that you can use to limit the spread and keep yourself safe. To help you out, we have put together a small list of these tips to get you to get started on your safe travels.
Follow The Restrictions Set In Place
Though it is advised not to minimise travelling as much as possible during the pandemic, for those that travel for work this is unavoidable. Therefore, making sure that you are following all the restrictions that are in place and quarantining where needed will enable you to ensure that you are travelling safely and reducing the spread of the disease as much as possible. Should you be travelling for work, your employer should be aware of this and factor in quarantine time into your travel plans.
Make Sure You Are Vaccinated
If you are beginning to look at booking a holiday for when we can travel again, it is important to make sure that you have filled out a GHIC Application, got health insurance and most importantly, been vaccinated. Though there is no definite answer for this at this moment in time, many reports are suggesting that a vaccination passport may be needed to travel. As a result of this speculation, it is recommended that you make sure you are vaccinated and following the news to ensure you are following all guidelines when it comes to your travelling.
Travelling And Testing
In addition to the potential introduction of the vaccine passport, the use of testing before, during and after you travel is likely to be put in place. With many requiring you to take a test before you travel, the need for a negative test result is only set to increase when the world begins to open back up again. With testing at airports and other major locations becoming more important than ever before this is likely to become the new normal when it comes to people travelling abroad in the future.
Remember Personal Safety
The final way that you can keep yourself healthy when travelling is through remembering your own personal hygiene and keeping you and those you are travelling with as safe as possible. Whether this is the use of hand sanitiser, face masks or making sure that you are all social distancing should you need to, it is important to note that reducing the spread starts with you and the way you conduct yourself. Therefore, taking the time to make sure that you are following all the rules will keep not only your party safe but all those that are around you as well.
Though there is still very minimal travel taking place at this time, there are several ways that you can continue to keep yourself safe when it does come around to you travelling once again. Which of these will you be using in the summer?
