Travel options are starting to open up all over the world as many are now looking to get back on the path to recovery as the impact of the coronavirus is starting to ease, and whilst there are still some places that will have heavy travel restrictions it does seem that you may be able to have a good summer holiday this year – but what should you keep in mind when looking to make your travel plans?
Follow travel guidance – Your own countries guidance for travelling may different to others, so make sure you check up on all of the travel information available to you so you don’t run into any nasty surprises – these will also include information you may need around quarantining upon arrival both to your holiday destination and returning back home. There may also be countries you’re unable to visit, such as the US for many, so if you’re making future plans consider that these options may remain unavailable into the future.
Take your own entertainment – There are still a huge number of businesses that are closed and may remain so for the foreseeable future and with that in mind you may need to play for a few quiet days in your hotel room, particularly if you need to quarantine. During the pandemic mobile gaming has offered one of these consistent forms of entertainment, and despite recent changes to initiatives such as Gamstop aimed at reducing participation options for many players, and with sporting events coming back these casinos and betting sites are available to make your time stuck inside a little more bearable.
Keep your expectations measured – Whilst many have said that a summer holiday is possible and that you can book at your own risk, it is important to keep your expectations measured when doing so – we’re still in the midst of a pandemic and as with the previous point there will still be many places that remain closed for the future, with this you’re still going to be a little restricted and also have expectations placed on you for keeping others safe. If you aren’t able to follow these rules aimed at keeping everyone safe, you may be expected to head home earlier than anticipated.
We’re still a long way out from getting back to ‘normal’ and holidays are still very much a leisure activity that isn’t a right granted to us, if you do secure yourself a post pandemic summer holiday it’s important to ensure you are as safe as possible during this time and that you are doing what you can to keep others safe too, and with this you do need to keep in mind there may be quarantine requirements on both sides and that you should factor this in to your travel plans for bookings, hirings, and the times you actually plan to travel. For those of you staying at home for the summer, hopefully you can enjoy the hotter summer that is on the way for many of us and make the most of your staycation.
