For sure, we will soon be able to travel again! However, we all wonder what our travels will look like in the future. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, life is back to normal, even if it is done in a little different way!
The CheckMyBus editorial team has decided to present this what travel might look like into a “new normal”.
1. Travel by bus and train rather than by plane
Domestic and shorter trips will no doubt top the list among tourists’ favorite destinations. Most travelers avoid waiting in queues and long checks at the airportwhich will certainly be stricter before boarding a flight.
In addition, coach operators are currently investing heavily to allow their passengers to travel safely after the coronavirus crisis and to guarantee their protection during journeys. For the moment, it is always recommended not to travel only if necessary and always wear a mask!
2. Book online
There safety and comfort online purchases will become, even more than today, a priority when booking tickets. Electronic tickets or e-tickets are increasingly being developed by coach operators, and allow get on the bus faster, thanks to a simple mobile phone, and without having to queue at the counter. Also be aware that online shopping is often synonymous withsavings!
3. Choose quiet destinations
Leave Paris and see the country ! Travelers will undoubtedly prefer destinations associated with freedom and wide open spaces, rather than large cities and international metropolises: the idea of a virus being transmitted during population gatherings will certainly mark people’s minds for a long time. Therefore, theeco-tourism will undoubtedly be the choice of many travelers.
4. Packing differently
The new basic accessories for travelers will undoubtedly be masks, gloves and hydroalcoholic gel. All of this will now be on sale at all airports and bus stations, alongside neck pillows.
Additionally, you will likely need to pack your passport more often in your luggage when international travel resumes.
It should also be considered that some countries require an immunity certificate from passengers, proving that they have been vaccinated (as soon as a vaccine becomes available) or showing the negative results of a recent test. Such measures already exist, in particular with the yellow fever vaccination certificate, which is compulsory to enter certain countries.
5. Share your destinations
Traveling with your family or friends will be one of the best ways to limit social isolation while saving money. The requests for rental of buses, caravans or minibuses will likely increase due to COVID-19. In addition, online bus rentals are now increasingly simple and accessible.
