Vacation and travel have changed drastically since the COVID-19 outbreak, leaving many plans canceled and many left to wonder when it will be safe to get away again. Now that parts of the country are opening, those who have been hit with wanderlust are looking for the safest way to travel.

Current Top Travel Safety Tips:

  • Hop a Flight - Look for airlines that offer flexible change and cancellation policies before booking. Also, be sure the carrier will ensure socially distant seating on their flights.
  • Be Picky with Accommodations – Pick a resort with a robust health and safety plan that is made public and a resort with a fully trained staff. Understand the resort’s cleaning and disinfection protocols at each point of your journey.
  • Choose a Destination with Options – Choosing a location with year-round warm weather gives many options for outdoor dining and outdoor entertainment to keep you busy and having fun safely.
  • The Return Home – Check and prepare if your home state requires a quarantine period upon return.
