Despite the resurgence of cases of the COVID-19 virus, the family is determined to take that memory-building vacation. Thus, planning must be undertaken to make it truly memorable but backed with precautionary measures.
Check the travel guidelines of your destination, make necessary adjustments that will work for your family. And yes, follow the local guidelines and the health protocols implemented in your destination.
Here are other tips one may follow:
- Avoid high-risk areas or those places with a high number of COVID-19 cases. This is to avoid contracting the disease, at the same time, to gain access to medical care if needed.
- Make sure that the family members have the necessary vaccinations and booster shots. You may also get recommendations from medical practitioners, especially if a family member has existing medical conditions.
- Reconsider the trip, if necessary. Just like how medical professionals put it, prevention is better than cure. There is no better way to avoid the virus by limiting physical interactions than by putting your family members at risk because of unnecessary travel.
If it could still be postponed, have it rescheduled by the end of the year, after the peak of COVID-19 cases in September to October based on the projection of DOH.
- Avail of a travel insurance policy. If you can no longer postpone your family travel, it is safer to get travel insurance to protect your family from unexpected expenses while traveling.
Keep in mind that no matter how well you plan, there is always a chance that something could go wrong. A good travel insurance policy can help you cover unexpected risks for you and your family members, in case something happens during the trip.
