As restrictions are being eased in this pandemic, people are starting to travel. There are more planes in the sky and travel companies and airlines are offering cheap flights to Europe and worldwide. Travel companies are offering weekend breaks, hotel breaks are offered with the option of full refund. Who would have thought of that a year ago?
My email inbox is bombarded with constant offers which seem appealing but I dare not venture as any country can go into a lockdown and fast.
Are you comfortable with the face of flying with a mask on ? Are you happy to fly into another country? At this moment, I wouldn’t dare travel as the situation could change quickly. Travel insurance purchased last year does not cover the pandemic.
During this lockdown, alot of people are looking to have a staycation in the United Kingdom. People I know are booking cottages, many are wary of going to hotels and some are just going out for day trips.
The hospitality trade in the United Kingdom has had a dramatic downturn due to this pandemic and local businesses and afar need support.
Normally, I would have been on my sixth or seventh holiday by now, instead I am reading about places I want to visit, I’m missing the travelling, seeing new places, meeting new people and learning about different cultures, but I’ll make up for it 🙂
