Travel has changed a lot since the beginning of 2020. This is of course due to the Corona pandemic, which sometimes makes it difficult to go on vacation. Here are some things to keep in mind before booking a vacation during the corona time.
Are the borders of the country open where you want to vacation. To go on holiday during this time, it is first of all useful to check whether the borders of the desired country are open, tourists are allowed in.
What are the conditions of this country to be allowed to travel here. When the borders are open to tourists, there are still conditions you have to meet in some countries. This may include a negative corona test or quarantine before or after visiting the country.
What the government has to say about travel. Before you book a trip, it is useful to see what your own government says about travel. Often there is a map with color codes that indicate whether or not it is safe to travel to a country, and the conditions that will apply when you return home.
Are accidents are covered by insurance. Before departure, it is important to check the conditions of your travel insurance. This states whether corona-related costs are covered or not. Often when you visit a country from code orange, no more costs are covered in case of contamination.
Which corona rules apply during the trip. In addition to the conditions for entering the country, there are of course also rules within the country to follow such as wearing mouth masks or certain facilities and sights that are closed. In some cases, there are also curfews to be followed.
