It is no-brainer that the pandemic has hit home to the global travelling industry, which has especially affected the ones working in the travel and tourism sector. While the world is heading towards the phase of unlocking, people are at the tip of their toes to get their feet on travelling spree.

Hit the Road

It is a far less risky or scary prospect and also provides you with the luxury of travelling without the fear of contracting the virus — which is what we’re all aiming for now.
More than a passport

For such people, they require more than a passport — with a certificate proving their COVID-19 negative. This could also include wrist bands which prove you’re negative. What we saw in the movie contagion could be a real-life prospect.
Isolation is the solution
If we had a penny for every time our Goa plan was cancelled, we would be floating in cash right now. However, since we’re all getting out of the pandemic successfully, we ought to have this one for surviving a pandemic year. However, since we’re talking about a pandemic here, it is better to follow the isolation norms even in the destinations, we travel to.
Although the health and hygiene will remain the topmost priority for everyone out there, people have started supporting the local business and local firms as they are the one that is affected dramatically, when compared to luxury hotels and suites. With necessary safety and hygiene measures in place, going local will be on top of everyone’s mind
New essentials in packaging
The most fun yet tiring job of travelling or going on a vacation is the packaging. Once people start travelling, there will be new essentials for packing- which compulsory includes different types of masks, gloves, hats, and sanitizers. Forgot your mask? You cannot even enter a place.
The new normal
The above-mentioned safety measure will be the new normal for all the travelling freaks. The global pandemic will change the way we look, touch or feel things and basically will change the definition of a “normal” life. Although it will take months of effort to get accustomed to the new normal, it is time that we get adjusted soon.
