The pandemic has turned people’s lives upside down. Nobody, including the travel buffs, has been spared. Although flight operations are resuming and tourist destinations are reopening their gates, one thing is certain – travelling is not going to be as it was before the pandemic struck. So, what is travelling going to look like post the pandemic? What are the major change travellers can expect? Here are some insights into what travelling would mean in a post-pandemic world.
Things to note – Restrictions
Cross border travel or even inter-state travel is subject to the rules and regulations of the state/national health ministry. Several countries still have travel bans in place. Some others are cautiously lifting the restrictions in stages. Therefore, if you are planning to travel, have all the necessary details regarding your destination.
Know what rules and regulations are in place. Be aware of the dos and don’ts. This matters more than ever in a post-Covid-19 world. Carry your safety gear and be prepared to take tests if the government in your destination state/country has mandated it. Anybody who has even the slightest of symptoms should postpone any plans of travelling.
It is not just the government that fears the virus spread the fear is also very much present among people who have lost their near and dear ones to the virus. Therefore, although travel restrictions are slowly being lifted, not everybody is waiting to get on a plane and restart travelling. For the travel buffs – this is an advantage of sorts. You are likely to see fewer crowds, even in what were known as ‘popular tourist destinations.’ Thus, you do not have to wait for the off-season to visit a place when its quiet and peaceful.
However, this should in no way encourage you to flout the norms or take things less seriously. You should still keep your masks on and follow all the rules that you would, in a place filled with people.
The travel industry
The travel industry has suffered huge losses worldwide. Analysts claim that it is going to take years before the industry recovers. Almost all their primary sources of revenue have stopped due to the pandemic. Yet, hotels, resorts and homestays are forced to take in only a limited number of tourists to ensure overall safety.
It would be wise for travellers to cooperate with members of the hospitality industry. Your actions can slightly ease their sufferings. Thus, join hands with those who provide you with the best service even in the worst of times.
Travelling post-Covid 19 will surely be a new experience for both providers and consumers. The alarming infection rates and mortality rates are proof that the virus cannot be taken lightly. Therefore, for people above the age of 60, little children and those who are already suffering from other conditions/diseases, it would be best to wait until it is safer to travel.
