The current COVID-19 pandemic has drastically affected citizens and businesses alike. One major industry that has been touched is the travel industry – and by extension, business travelers and casual travelers/tourists. People have been hesitant to travel, and with the growing restrictions and quarantine, many simply are unable to.
To help, our BestBus team has put together a list of things to remember when you a traveling that can protect you and your family.
- Travel Insurance
One important rule to always remember is that while it may potentially cost more upfront, buying the premium level of travel insurance can help if you are unable to travel since it allows you to cancel for any reason. Basic coverage will not let you cancel if you are uncomfortable with flying or can’t for a number of reasons. Hesitant travelers and individual who did not want to fly for fear of potentially getting sick was something that was very common during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Read Your Policy Closely
No matter what coverage you choose, always be certain that you read the fine print and the entire policy closely – this is something that many people fail to due during the purchasing process. Unfortunately, many times insurance doesn’t want to pay, so it is paramount that you are certain of the coverage you are receiving, and what it really covers.
- Be Mindful of Situations
The decision to travel can be a very delicate decision and should be one that is made with extreme care and thought (especially during situations like we are experiencing now). You and your loved ones need to always be informed and stay up to date with the latest news about where you are traveling and if there are any situations that could alter your plans. As an example, before this pandemic arrived in North America, the CDC was urging that citizens avoid all unnecessary and nonessential travel to such locations as China.
Always go over any travel plans with a healthcare provider – especially when traveling to different countries or continents.
