Due the Covid-19, a lot of people spent 2020 exploring their own cities, a small town nearby, some had quick road trips to lakes, mountains, and beaches, or some even ended up on their own backyards. Something people will be looking forward to in 2021 is vacation, and hopefully traveling will return to normal soon. The travel industry experts have done their research on how traveling is going to look like in 2021 and here are some hacks that will help you have an enjoyable vacation.
Book your flight during weekdays
Check the flexibility of your ticket
According to Expedia.ca, flexibility should be required not a “nice-to-have”. There’s been a lot of unpredicted things going on last year, and at the last second, you might’ve had to cancel your trip. Making sure that doesn’t happen again by booking a ticket you can easily move your dates or even cancel and get a refund.
Health and safety advancements are essential
2021 concerns about health and safety while traveling will continue to impact every aspect of trip planning. Always be careful with what accommodation you choose, where to go and who to travel with, in order to avoid crowds as much as possible.
It seems obvious with the rules and d guidelines changing constantly, make sure you’re checking for the latest updates at home and your intended destination frequently so you aren’t blindsided by some information you didn’t have when you booked the trip. Or even worse, you aren’t able to go because you weren’t aware of the new policies.
Pack light and smart
When planning a trip, we always overload our baggage with stuff we end up not using. There are downloadable packing lists that you can get from the internet to make things easy on you. It’s way easier and simpler.
Exchange your money at the right places and try contactless payments as much as you can
Usually, small kiosks found in malls have the best rates. But if you have the opportunity to pay with card, apply that to avoid touching as much as possible because of Covid-19.
