Heading Abroad in a Post-Covid World? Don’t Forget these Travel Essentials!

Remember when travelling seemed so simple? Travellers who are excited to jump on a plane and enjoy exploring the world once again may find the travelling experience a little different to how they remembered it post-covid.

With tests and quarantines to consider, as well as traditional pre-flight security checks, baggage requirements and airport transfers, it’s a miracle any of us get on a plane without forgetting about something! Travelling is usually a stressful experience, no matter how excited you are about reaching your destination. Therefore, some forward planning can help keep stress and worry to a minimum. In this post, we’ll explore the travel essentials everyone should bring in a post-covid world, read on to find out more.

Travel Insurance

Travelling overseas shouldn’t mean taking a risk, and while many people believe that travel insurance is a waste of money, in reality, no one should be travelling without it. UHC Travel insurance ensures you and your loved ones are covered in the event of a medical emergency abroad and in an event where an evacuation is required. The last thing you need is to be stuck and completely stranded thousands of miles away from home, with mounting medical bills and problems with your treatments. Buying this kind of travel protection means you can enjoy your holiday, safe in the knowledge that if you or one of your party falls ill, has an accident or you need to be evacuated from the country quickly, this is all taken care of. Don’t risk your holiday – ensure you have travel insurance in place before you travel.

Masks and Hand Sanitiser

Flyers are currently required to wear face coverings when flying on planes and in airports. So, it’s worthwhile taking multiple masks to ensure their longevity and efficacy, especially on those long haul flights. You may also prefer to wear a face-covering in the airport, in taxis or on other methods of public transport. Using hand sanitiser regularly can help keep covid and other germs and bacteria at bay!

A Valid Passport

It’s easy to think that you don’t need reminding about your passport. However, a staggering number of fliers reach the airport before realising that their documents are out of date – throwing their entire holiday into chaos. Ideally, you should be checking the expiry date on your passports before you book your flights, as some countries won’t allow you to enter if you have less than six months left on your current passport.

Emergency Numbers

Do you know the emergency numbers of the country you’re visiting? For the USA, it’s 911, but what about mainland Europe, or the Far East? Arming yourself with this kind of knowledge will help keep you and your family safe whilst you travel overseas.

Your Prescriptions

If you’re currently taking medications, then not only should you take your medicines, but a copy of your prescription also. If you need medical assistance or run out of your medication, you’re more likely to find what you need at a local pharmacy.

Final Thoughts…

Travelling successfully takes time and careful planning. Don’t leave home without these helpful additions!
