Travelling Safely In A Pandemic
COVID-19 transformed society, and the way we think about our lives.
As the world around us seeks to stabilize, many adults are thinking about “what comes next?” and “what do I really want to do?”
For some, it’s time with family, rethinking professional endeavours, or changing where and how we live. As the weather changes, many are craving travel. Especially to tropical locations.
One thing is for certain, most adults value time and freedom more than ever, and that is most evident in travel. In a recent survey by Skift Research, the research arm of the travel trade publication, one-third of adults said they hope to travel within three months once restrictions were lifted.
The impact of COVID-19 has created a new travel landscape with ever-changing protocols and conflicting information. In an article published by Travel Pulse, a leading digital source for travel news, travelers are recognizing the benefits of working with a Travel Professional now more than ever.
Humans crave travel for 2 reasons:
- Travel Restores Our Sense of Freedom and Hope: The desire to travel is second nature because all of us want the freedom to escape the monotony of everyday life. We yearn to explore more interesting weather, customs and landscapes on the other side of the world, all of which brings us hope.
- Travel Stimulates Our Senses: When we go someplace new, all our senses get activated and we feel alive with wonder and curiosity.
