The year 2020 has been unsettling for most as we are trapped inside our homes and can’t travel. With local restrictions and social-distancing measures in place, we might as well hold off any travelling plans we have.
If you are booking for a trip past August and you are not going to violate any government restrictions, make sure to purchase insurance. The coronavirus is still a global problem so better to be safe than sorry.
If you are travelling locally, make sure to contact your local tour operators to closely monitor the situation in the place where you are travelling. It is also important to contact your airline and insurance provider and ask what coverage you can have if you go out with your plans.
With the situation, we are in now and the restrictions for travelling, make sure if you are going to be quarantined for 14 days once you arrive. Visit sites that can provide you with information regarding local and international situations and if it is safe to travel.
These days, having travel insurance is a necessity especially if you are travelling. Essential travel is still covered by insurance but it is best to double-check your policy. If you travel against the government advice, your insurance may become invalid not to mention breaking the law.
While the Coronavirus may hinder most of our travelling plans this year, this does not mean that we cannot enjoy our plans. Just make sure to be a responsible traveller and follow whatever guidelines the government set out
