Shreyashi had booked a long month's vacation in May 2020 but she had to cancel her tickets due to the COVID-19 pandemic that was by then spread all over the globe. Shreyashi, an engineer by profession stayed back at home and watched movies, spent her time cleaning, and also following some hobbies all at home only two years back. However, as now May 2022 is nearing, Shreyashi plans to fulfill her ambition of traveling to her granny's place in Coorg and spend her month-long vacation there. Shreyashi is now fully vaccinated and has her relatives who stay in Coorg also vaccinated. Many people like Shreyashi are now coming out in the open this summer to fulfill their travel dreams.
Thankfully the cancelation of tickets had got a refund by a major percentage two years back but as now the travel season has started and the COVID-19 cases have gone down, here are some ways on how you need not postpone or cancel your trip but ensure to have safe travel.
1) Do the travel ticket booking faster:
Travel is not just picking up nowadays but people in huge numbers are going out of their homes. So, it is obvious that the tickets via train, flight or bus or any transport medium will cost you higher as compared to what they were two years ago. As prices are rising due to the high consumer demand, you need to go to the best travel website to get your booking done faster. It will help you get the best deals at an affordable price.
2) Have an open mind:
You cannot be rigid if you plan to travel to faraway places. The coronavirus pandemic has led rigidity to go haywire as all you would need when you get out of your home is to be flexible, have an open mind, and also be okay when things don't go your way. So, if the hotel you are looking for to stay on your trip is not accommodating you, then try another option. Keep two to three options always handy when it comes to planning for travel as that will keep you excited and avoid fewer disturbances when the reality is not the same as you expected it to be.
3) Be wise when you select your happy destination:
Your place for happiness may depend on several factors and no, we are not going to debate that with you. However, as the coronavirus cases are on a declining trend in various places, there are various restrictions that may emerge when the situation becomes challenging. So, if you had planned to go to Punjab in the month of May and suddenly, you hear news of an upward trend in increasing cases of the coronavirus disease, be okay to change your plan rather than getting stuck up in the journey. Having a backup plan or second or third option ready will always be of use to you in your post-coronavirus travel journey.
4) Get vaccinated and carry your medicines:
It is summertime. The major illnesses that come during summer have the root cause of dehydration and increased heat levels outside. So, it is always better to carry medicines or remedies that will keep you fresh and healthy during your travel. Remember the two doses of the coronavirus vaccine are extremely effective, so ensure to have completed the course.
