Pack All Protective Gear
Packing your protective gear is one of the essential tips for travel during COVID. Your protective equipment should include disposable gloves, masks, sanitisers, face shields, etc.
Make Sure to Get Vaccinated and Carry Vaccination Reports
Many countries have opened their doors to only vaccinated travellers. So, make sure you are carrying a digital and hard copy of your vaccination certificates.
Check the Health Status of Your Destination
It is wise to check the number of active COVID cases and other health-related statuses of your destination.
Check for COVID-19 Protocols for Tourist Centres
You might decide to visit museums and amusements parks during your vacation. Check out their online sites or ring them up to be completely prepared to enjoy these sites safely.
Make Sure to Have a Backup Plan
You never know what might go wrong during your post-COVID vacay. So, we strictly suggest you create a backup plan before starting your journey.
Avoid Dining Outside and Carry Your Food
You must be extra considerate when picking your outdoor dining spots. Avoid eating in places that do not practice hygiene and sanitisation.
Download Road Map for Seamless Navigation
Your internet can be snappy and unpredictable at times. It is better to download maps in advance to prevent yourself from getting lost.
Use Toilet Seat Sanitizers When Using Public Restrooms
One of the essential tips for travel during COVID is to carry a toilet seat sanitising spray. It’ll come in handy when you are using public toilets. Another alternative is to carry disposable toilet seat covers.

Most Importantly, Keep Washing and Sanitizing Hands
When you come in contact with common touchpoints in public places, make sure to sanitise or wash your hands immediately.
Carry Your Pillow Covers and Bedsheets
Some accommodations might not change or sanitise the bedding upholstery. So, it is wise to carry your own, to ensure safety.
Don’t Forget Essential Medicines
If you are travelling during COVID times, a medicine kit is necessary to assist you during an emergency.

Make Contactless Payments Wherever Possible
These days most places accept contactless payments to avoid the spread of COVID-19. Configure your apps to activate seamless and contactless payment.
Take COVID-19 Tests
Most of the destinations would ask you for a negative COVID report to allow you to set foot. Likewise, your homeplace might also request you to provide a negative certificate.
Prevent Visiting Crowded Tourist Spots
Travelling during COVID times will be less risky if you avoid visiting crowded tourist spots. Often these crowded places become hotspots for spreading the virus.
