Traveling in the age of coronavirus pandemic brings a new set of challenges. Here you can find six useful tips to help you stay safe through your journey.
Take shorter trips
Avoid long haul flights and, whenever possible, break your journey into simpler itineraries. Multi-city traveling can ease trip planning in these unpredictable times, and Sky-Tours can help you find the cheapest option out there.
Check airline and local policies
Every country has its own entry regulations, which also occur to change frequently. Make sure you check in advance, daily, and fill out the required documents for each of the countries you will be visiting. A good practice to stay flexible is by choosing a refundable or flexible flight ticket. Check our protection packages for cancellations.
Pack extra masks
Pack a couple of extra masks for airports, airplanes, and in public. Health travel guidelines require passengers to wear masks at the airport, on the planes, and in public spaces, which also must be changed every four hours.
Avoid self-service food
Coronavirus gets transmitted very quickly, and that means that any food or snack which is lightly cooked or hand-picked (“buffet” style) can be a potential hub of germs. Opt for a fully (if possible slowly) cooked food at a decent restaurant when traveling.
That’s a tricky one, but try to avoid large crowds and small, enclosed spaces. Prefer to take your coffee or snack in the outside lounges at the airports and keep the recommended social distancing. When you arrive at your destination, outdoor activities can be a good option to stay safe (and healthy!).
Keep high hygiene standards
Practice good hygiene by washing your hands often and thoroughly and, if not accessible, equip your handbag with a good antiseptic hand gel. Disinfect frequently high-touch surfaces commonly used items.
Keep yourself and others safe is essential during these unprecedented times. Follow our health tips and your trip can still be rewarding!
