Planning a Post-Pandemic Getaway


Picture Credit

2020 has been a bizarre year for the vast majority of us. Back in January, none of us could have anticipated how the following months would unfold. We had all sorts of plans set out and were well set in our day to day routines. Who could have guessed that a worldwide pandemic would unfold? Over the past few months, governments around the world have set out all sorts of guidelines and measures, requesting that people limit contact with others and stay home whenever possible. As part of this, international travel has been put on hold between many countries, with strict conditions set on travel between countries where flights are still operating. If you had a getaway booked, chances are it’s been called off. But this doesn’t mean that things will stay this way forever. Sure, it may take a while for international travel to get back on track, but now is a good time to start planning a smaller scale, post-pandemic getaway. Not only will it give you something to look forward to, but planning in advance will give you the best chances of making sure your trip is as safe and well thought out as possible.

Consider a Road Trip

If you live with someone you’d like to get away with (perhaps a partner or close housemate) or if you are in a bubble with someone you’d like to go away with, you might want to consider a road trip. Road trips are a good idea, as you will only be spending time in the space of someone you know and have spent time with over the past months. It’s much safer than getting on a flight with countless strangers. Plus, there are countless places you can go in your local area without worrying about potentially spreading the virus to new areas. Just make sure to get a hold of a reliable vehicle from Burswood Car Rentals and choose a location. Make sure that you are permitted to travel to this location and you should be good to go!

Pack Appropriately

Of course, if you’re heading away on a getaway, you’re going to need to pack appropriately. This includes various items that you might not have considered packing pre-pandemic. Some such items include:

  • Plenty of face masks for use in public
  • Latex gloves
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Antibacterial wipes

Keeping yourself and everything you come into contact with clean should be high on your priority list right now.

Be Flexible

Of course, now more than ever, it’s important to be flexible with your trip. Regulations and guidelines are constantly changing, meaning you never know when your area could go back into a lockdown mode, or when new restrictions and limitations may be put in place. If you do book anything, such as accommodation, make sure that it is fully refundable up until the day.

We’re all yearning to get away right now. After all, we’ve spent months in isolation. But it’s important not to rush into things and to plan thoroughly to ensure your break is safe for all!
