Whether you want to stay in England and have a staycation or you want to travel to another country to enjoy a normal(ish) holiday, you have to take certain precautions. Who doesn’t need a holiday right now? That’s the real question.
Of course, there are plenty of things to consider, even more, when travelling during a pandemic but it’s definitely possible. So, how to keep safe while travelling during the pandemic?
Protection is essential.
PPE Specialists Aviation Spares and Repairs recommends using personal protective equipment to protect you and your loved ones when travelling. Plus, if you are going through airports face coverings are mandatory. Aviation Spares sell plenty of protective equipment for various industries and also personal use, including disposable face masks, face shields, hand sanitiser, disposable gloves and FFP2 respirator masks. This type of equipment should be used in combination with regular hand hygiene and social distancing.
How do face masks work? Which face mask should I get? How to get my kids to wear face masks? These are all questions that naturally come up when talking about face masks.
Janine Huldie published an article on whether children should wear face masks which is pretty helpful! She explains that “masks are used to reduce the potential transmission of the virus from the mask wearer to others by catching droplets of moisture that might contain the virus thus, not letting it spread further.” You can see now why masks are so important, even more, when many people don’t show any symptoms while still being able to spread the virus.
This article on Fashion Mommy also mentions that you shouldn’t assume that your child doesn’t want to wear a face mask from the start. “Instead, introduce the idea of wearing a face mask to your children and ask them what their thoughts are.” She gives the idea of having face masks with your children’s favourite colour or patterns to make them more excited about wearing them.
Things to consider.
Wherever you go, make sure to regularly check the area’s coronavirus restrictions and regulations, as they might change on a day-to-day basis. Plus, you will also need to consider the mandatory quarantine duration at your home country and planned destination.
It’s also important to consider your personal situation. Is there someone in your family that has a higher risk of contracting the virus? In case of contracting the virus whilst abroad, how will you make sure to not spread it within your community back home?

For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
