Are you ready for a vacation?
While the coronavirus has certainly impacted the travel industry, that doesn’t mean you can’t go on an incredible adventure with your family, your partner, or yourself! From weekend road trips to luxury stays at all-inclusive resorts, here are some of the ways to plan the getaway you deserve.
Renting a car for road trips
Are looking to hit the open road for an easy, flexible vacation this summer? Here are a few reasons to rent a car and travel in style!
First, you’ll be covered if anything goes wrong and you need service while on the road. If you’re driving your own car, availability may be limited based on which businesses are currently operating. And who wants to wait around in a service shop while on vacation? When you work with a rental company, they’ll be able to take care of you should any problems arise.
Second, you can choose a car that really adds to the adventure! For example, you can opt for a newer-model SUV that includes safety features like lane-keeping assistance, blind-spot warning, and emergency braking to keep you safe on the road as well as fun amenities like Wi-Fi, wireless phone charging, and satellite radio. Or, if you’re packing light, consider a sleek sports car that will make the drive as fun as the destination.
When choosing a rental car company, you’ll want to ensure that they’re committed to the highest standards of cleanliness and sanitization. A travel management company can help you find the perfect car from a reliable rental agency so you feel safe and comfortable out on the road.
Flying to your destination
Is the vacation you’ve been dreaming of a little too far of a drive?
Good news: now is a great time to fly! Airlines are going to great lengths to ensure the cleanliness and sanitation of their aircrafts, so you can feel safe as you take to the skies.
Not to mention, ticket prices are at all-time lows as airlines try to encourage more travelers to fly. Many are also offering more lenient change policies in case you need to modify or cancel your trip, so you can book with peace of mind.
Staying at an all-inclusive resort
Are you dreaming of that indulgent, completely-relaxed, having-absolutely-every-whim-taken-care-of feeling you get from staying at an all-inclusive resort?
These venues are eager to welcome you back! As destinations like Aruba, Bermuda, Jamaica, Mexico, and Saint Lucia have begun reopening to tourists, all-inclusive resorts are taking steps to ensure they’re ready.
So what can you expect when traveling to an all-inclusive destination?
Most countries open to Americans will have travel requirements, like presenting a negative COVID-19 test or pre-paying for a test to be completed upon arrival. You may also be asked to do a self-health assessment.
Once you arrive, you’ll notice a few changes to the resorts. For example, some resorts will offer contactless check-ins on your smartphone, and self-serve buffets will be replaced by a la carte breakfast and lunch menus. You may also be asked to wear a face covering indoors to keep you, fellow guests, and resort staff safe.
With modifications to allow for social distancing and updates to cleaning and sanitation protocols, all-inclusive resorts are ready to provide the world-class experience travelers have been dreaming about while ensuring the comfort and well-being of all guests and staff.
