Sun, sea, and solace. Three words we feel confident many reading this and beyond are in search of. If you are anything like us, it is coming close to two years since we last felt the international heat hit our skin as we depart the plane. It is undoubtedly a feeling that we miss and are eager to once again feel in the coming months.
Following the most recent travel update, meaning more countries were added to the green travel list, we feel confident that people are eagerly making plans to book their next international holiday. We get it; we are right there with you!
While that might very well be the case, and there is nothing wrong with being excited about this prospect, there are some things that you should make an effort to remember when going through this process. Read on for more.
Deciding on a Location
Before the pandemic, this was a decision that was easy to make for many people. While some people choose to go to the same resorts each year, others visit a different country or city each time. At the same time, others have a dream bucket list when it comes to travelling and feel comfortable in going anywhere.
Fast forward to this day and age, and there are other things that you need to take into consideration when choosing your next holiday destination. This includes whether you are required to isolate on arrival or return and whether you will need to take any relevant tests before travelling. While we say it would be a dream to be stuck in a tropical destination, we feel confident that the novelty would wear off eventually!
On the other hand, there are things that you can do to make this overall decision process a bit easier. This takes us to the following section.
Travel Documentation and Insurance
Naturally, the first thing that springs to mind here would be that of your passport. Without it, you cannot travel internationally, so make sure that it is valid and accessible before booking your holiday.
Furthermore, you will want to check whether you will need to have some proof of vaccination before travelling to your holiday destination as well. While some people might not feel comfortable needing a vaccination passport for travelling, this could very well be a thing as we move further into 2021 and beyond.
On the other hand, you will want the necessary documentation available should you become unwell while on holiday, or if something happens before you depart which derails your plans. You’ve got it; we are talking about travel insurance.
For those well-seasoned travelers reading this, we feel confident that this is something you make a priority when booking your next adventure. For those who are not as well-travelled, you will want to ensure you take out a policy from companies like Staysure for the duration of your holiday, which accounts for any activities you wish to partake in.
What’s more, Staysure include Coronavirus protection. Should your holiday be cancelled or postponed due to the lingering effects of the pandemic, you will not be out of pocket. What more could you want?
While this was only a short list of what you should consider when booking your next holiday, we hope it has shed some light on the types of factors you should be accounting for. Whether you manage to get away sometime this year or have to postpone your plans even further until 2022, we feel confident that the holiday you embark on will be well worth the wait!
