Important travel lessons learned during the pandemic
The year 2020 has been exceedingly difficult for all of you. Personal and professional lives both have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Especially the travelling sector has been impacted severely. Not only in business terms but also for the individuals who are travel freaks, this pandemic was like a big hurdle. But now gradually things are getting better. So, if you are also looking to travel and explore different countries, then there is good news for you. Now you may start planning your India Tour as all your favorite tourist attractions in India are now ready to welcome you. If you are also fond of the culture and diversity of India, then start planning your Golden Triangle Tour right away. However, there will be some guidelines that must be followed. Mentioned below are some of the important travel lessons that most people have learned during the pandemic: –
- Backup plan: – From the pandemic, the most important travel lesson that you get to learn is to always have a backup plan with you. Whenever you make your tour to any place, always try to have a plan B simultaneously running in your mind as there could be an emergency like this pandemic that could come your way and destroy your whole trip. Hence, it is particularly important to always have a backup plan ready.
- Flexibility: – Another interesting fact about travelling that you might have learned from this pandemic is flexibility while travelling. You must not be adamant about sticking to the original plan. This is because, in times like this pandemic, you might need to change your plan looking at the situation of that place. For instance, if you may need to leave the country five days before the day your Rajasthan Tour gets over, because of some emergency, then you must be mentally prepared for that.
- Travel charges must be refundable: – Most of you all must have lost your money, due to the non-refundable policies of several companies. Whether it is food or any travel plans, many people have made this mistake. This pandemic has taught people to opt for all the refundable policies, rather than losing all the money due to cancellations. During the COVID-19 as well, most of the people had to bear losses due to the non-refundable policies. Hence, now wherever you travel, just make sure of opting for the refundable payment method. Whether it is an air booking or any hotels for accommodation, always go for the cancellation option without a penalty.
- Travel insurance is a must: – Often, people ignore the travel insurance part and carry on with their booking. However, you must know that this thing can result in a very costly way for you. Travel insurance is the only best way that can provide you with full compensation if any misfortune takes place with you. They completely assure your whole trip or tour, having which you may enjoy your holidays without any fear. However, it is important to select an adequate travel insurance option, as there are many who do not cover the complete loss. For instance, if it does not include travel disruption, then it might not be useful for you in times like this pandemic.
- Keep in touch with the sources of information: – Most of the time, when you are on your India Tour, you are not that keen to keep an eye on the outside world. You just get lost in your own world and switch on the complete holiday mode and on the other hand switch off from all outer world. However, it is not a good thing to do, because whenever there is an emergency like situation, you will never come to know unless you switch on the TV and look for the news channels. Hence, while holidaying, you must check various sources of information from where you can get the relevant and useful news.
- Keep in touch with the family and friends: – Not only while travelling in this pandemic, but also when you are travelling at a normal time, always keep on checking with your family and friends back at home. It is not only for checking out on the family and friends, but also the situation in your country. There could be a situation when you are not in your country, and there are some internal issues going on there. So, at times like this, you must be in touch with your friends and family to get all the important information regarding the issues, so that you may get back to your home safe and sound.
- Small crowd more enjoyment: – Finally travel regarding things that you have got to learn from this pandemic is how to enjoy in a smaller circle, rather than being in a huge crowd. This pandemic has shown that by being in a smaller circle, you can enjoy to your fullest. Also, when you visit any place where usually there are many people, you are less likely to enjoy that place completely, as you do not get enough space. Whether it is a beach or any mountainous place, you will not be able to enjoy it more if there is a huge crowd. Also, when you are in a less crowded place, you feel more special as you experience that the place is only meant for you.
The above lessons are basically for the travellers, but also there are special things that the travel professionals have got to learn from this pandemic such as safety comes first for the customers, contact-less services are the best. So, what are you waiting for, just make your booking now and embark on your India tour for an experience of a lifetime.
