How realistic, it is to travel in 2021 during the current scenario?
This is a burning question that we ask every day to ourselves whether it is safe to venture out now.
We’ve spent countless hours debating the pros and cons of travel during the pandemic and the answer that we get is very confusing. But Yes, we can travel and we can make our travelling very safe and organised. We must consider few ranges on which we can establish our travel goals.
- The first and foremost is Travel Insurance. Before pandemic, it was always considered as an additional expense, but not anymore. Travel insurance covers many damages like Flight getting missed, injury or illness while travelling, lost baggage, lost travel documents, and any other unforeseen circumstances. Moreover, with the unpredictable situation of the Corona Virus throughout, it is imperative to buy Travel Insurance while travelling.
- The current pandemic situation in your area and the location where you are planning to travel (especially the health services and restrictions in case of any emergency).
- Government travel restrictions on both the locations and all the guidelines issued by the state governments.
- Currently most of the state borders are asking for Negative RT-PCR, so don’t even think of venturing out without having one as by doing this, you are keeping yourself safe as well as others, who might get in contact with you during your journey.
- During the current situation, tourism has come to a dead stop for the time being, so it is the perfect time to venture to locations where you can keep working from home as well as enjoy the calmness and beauty of the place. Perfect opportunity to bond with the local communities and relish the freshness, devoid of the rush of mainstream tourism during the season.
- Choosing an operator and your stay, who are following the COVID guidelines is another important factor that cannot be overlooked. Travel operator who are following the COVID guidelines sincerely as well the hotels and resort, who are sanitizing their place well enough before your check-in at the place.
- Most essential, don’t forget to wear the Mask and sanitize and wash your hands whenever you come back from outside. Of course, this is not necessary to reiterate, but a reminder is always good.
Tourism is an industry, where millions of livelihoods depend on the tourists visiting that place and without tourism, the impacts are far-reaching and extremely scary. Without tourism, in absence of tourism, many would lose their jobs or just struggle to stay afloat and survive.
This article can be concluded with attention to the fact that we all need to travel but we need to do it responsibly now as this is the time when individual obligation comes in. So, if you are planning to travel shortly, then do with utmost commitment to take care of yourself as well as others around you.
