Will travel ever be the same?
The truth is, no one knows. There are many speculations, but as travel and tourism ground to a halt due to worldwide quarantine and lockdowns, everyone is wondering what to expect when the world begins a “new normal”. As restrictions are eased, die-hard travellers regain hope they can start thinking about when they can travel again.
Travel as we knew it will have to change, at least in the immediate months/years after the novel Coronavirus until a vaccine is found. Life in general will be different, it has to be to ensure our health, and to hopefully stop a second wave/spike of Covid-19. As long as we continue to wear face masks in public, carry out regular hand washing/using alcohol sanitisers and physical/social distancing, the majority of us will be fine – however when we travel, we need to apply these same measures and more to ensure our continued safety.
Staycations, caravans, motorhomes, road trips, train travel, virtual travel - domestic travel will undoubtedly be on the rise post-quarantine, and this is the best way to give your economy a much needed boost after lockdown. International travel will still exist, but what precautions do you need to take? Will we see a rise in sustainable travel now that the reset button has been pressed?
