Tips for Vacationing During COVID-19

June 1, 2020

Summer is on its way, and with it may come the desire for a much-needed vacation. We all need a break from time to time, and that’s never been more true than during the stress and worry of a pandemic. If you’re taking a summer vacation during COVID-19, follow these tips to make sure your getaway is as safe and stress-free as possible.

Ask About Cleaning Measures

Feel free to ask your hotel manager or Airbnb owner about what cleaning measures they’ve put in place at their facility. You want to feel safe and relaxed when vacationing, so choose somewhere that you know will put your health first.

Bring Your Own Bedding

Even if bedding is provided, you may feel more comfortable bringing your own sheets, pillows, and towels. It might take up a bit more room in the car, but if it will help you to settle in and enjoy your stay then it’s worth it.

And Cleaning Supplies

Disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer are always a good idea when travelling, and during COVID-19 they’re important for your peace of mind as well. Since supplies are currently a little unpredictable, it’s wise to bring your own rather than counting on picking some up at your destination.

Most importantly:

Stay Flexible

COVID-19 has brought about a lot of changes, so it’s important to stay flexible so you can enjoy your vacation—even if doesn’t go exactly as planned. Mentally prepare yourself for hiccups that might occur, understand that everyone is doing their best in a trying time, and commit to making the most of your vacation.
