Travel safely, choose the right insurance:
Before we get into the details of your travel arrangements, it’s important to talk to you about the foundation that will be ultra relevant to your travels, taking out the right insurance.
Choose insurance that:
- Cover your emergency medical care related to COVID-19
- Cover your non-COVID-19 related medical care (the health crisis may cause other illnesses or injuries to occur)
- Cover a wide range of expenses for health services, transportation, etc.
- Include trip cancellation coverage for covid- 19 or other reasons
- Include trip interruption coverage if you need to be quarantined during your trip or otherwise
Whether it’s visiting family and friends or taking the long-awaited dream vacation, travel is an important part of the fun. But you are probably wondering if it is possible to travel without the risk of contracting COVID-19? We have therefore tried to deal with the queries that come up often:
Means of transport during Covid-19:
There are specific considerations to take into account when traveling on the road this summer. Different regions of the country have different levels of COVID-19 activity, so it’s always important to check the facts and local recommendations at your destination. This information is usually available on the website of each state’s public health department. Other important considerations should be taken into account:
Bus or Train Travel: Bus or train journeys, however long, may involve sitting or standing within 2 meters of other people.
Road Trips: Stops en route to refuel, eat, or use the bathroom can put you and your travel companions in close contact with other people and surfaces.
Mobile home travel: You may need to stop less often to eat or go to the bathroom, but motorhome travel generally involves spending the night in RV areas and refueling and provisions in other public places. These stops can put you and those around you in contact with other people.
How to choose the country of destination taking into account the Covid-19:
States or countries that have experienced fewer cases of COVID-19 may still have widespread transmission that has gone (or goes) unnoticed. Additionally, a state that has had fewer cases of COVID-19 so far could theoretically have more susceptible people. This could make a future outbreak more difficult to manage.
The ultimate rules:
If you absolutely must travel, here are some ways to protect yourself and others on the go:
Clean your hands often
Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after:
Be in a public place
Touching surfaces frequently touched by other people
Blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing, and before touching your face or eating.
If you don’t have soap and water, take and use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they are dry.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
Avoid close contact with others
Keep a physical distance of six feet (two meters) from others.
Wear a cloth mask that covers you in public.
Cover yourself with your forearm when you cough or sneeze.
Avoid eating in restaurants with closed doors and instead grab food from the exterior window, sidewalk food service, or in stores.
