How to plan a trip during COVID-19
Have you wondered how you should be planning your trips during the global covid-19 dilemma? Whilst some places have restrictions and others have not it is easy to become confused on where you should visit and more importantly what you should visit while you are there! In spite of this we thought it would be helpful if Worldee showed you how to search for what is currently considered a ‘safe destination’ as well as planning your trip down to the last-minute maximising your time. Read on below as we give you 3 of our current suggestions on places to visit.
So you are looking for a getaway after being locked down for months and now you are unsure where to go or if you have to quarantine along with a whole list of other rules and laws being introduced by certain regions to curb the spread of COVID-19, so where do we start?
Google and newspaper articles which are recent is the first place to look for any potential destinations. Whilst it may seem that newspapers usually only share scary news, they are great for the travel section on the laws and regulations of regions which are great to visit! Make sure that you have the most up to date information as the rules on COVID-19 are ever changing globally as is the case with the 14 day quarantine from UK residents returning from their trips in Spain.
One country which really sticks out at the moment as a great potential holiday destination is Italy! Despite the fact that Italy was heavily impacted by COVID-19 in the early parts of the pandemic and lockdowns across the world. The bounce back has seen the country fare quite well with only 5.4 cumulative cases out of 100,000 people in a two week period, this makes it a great place to visit which has a lower risk than other countries in the world. Other countries worth considering include Denmark, Greece and Iceland.
Now that you have chosen a destination that you would like to visit it is now time to choose where you are going to stay and what you are going to do. Worldee has a great new feature which allows you to plan your trips, including where you are going to stay and what you are to do with attractions and food down to the minute. The first step is to type in your destination and the duration of your stay. Then search for and learn about some of the best places to visit and stay in that area and put that into your itinerary and don’t forget to add your arrival and departure times for the hotel.
When you find the hotel that you want to stay in, be sure to head over to price comparison sites or to the hotels site directly to book your stay (currently Worldee is unable to book the stay for you).
