Returning to travel is going to be a whole new life experience. And for some, it will possibly be an overwhelming one too. Because let's face the facts, for other people it is going to be like Christmas morning. What's my point? Before we start to get too excited, let's get our heads right and wrapped around these five things to consider to return to travel post-pandemic.
What are your personal travel boundaries?
Curating your life experience through travel is about clarifying wants, needs, and expectations for your life experience. That starts with understanding what you want to get out of your trip and being clear on your comfort levels emotionally, physically, and mentally for return to travel.
Do you have proper travel documents?
Do you have what you need to board a domestic flight, let alone daydream about sipping cocktails on an island in the Caribbean? Check your travel documents, people.
Do you have any travel credits?
Take an inventory of all the travel credits and rewards that may have accumulated from the start of the COVID19 global pandemic. Don't let those pre-pandemic travel credits and rewards go to waste.
What's your vacation travel budget?
Here is where your travel boundaries come into consideration. What are you willing to invest to curate the life experience that will meet your comfort level? Your budget should reflect your travel boundaries.
The pandemic is a foreseen circumstance, but even the best-laid plans change. Leave yourself room to meet the moment as changes arise, including required documentation, testing, vaccinations, and closures.
While these five things to consider to return to travel merely scratch the surface, they're necessary considerations before returning to vacation travel.
