In late 2019 a pandemic hit China and now the rest of the world, COVID-19. We are all stuck at home in an attempt to try and stop the spread of the virus. Certain rules have been implemented to enforce social distancing. And one of these rules is a ban on travel. We can no longer travel around the globe to see new places. And even after this pandemic is over I think that travel will be changed for quite a few years. Even when the travel bans have been lifted everything will be different.
Changes when travellingHere are a few ways I think travel will be affected.
- Immigration and security lines will be much longer
- Self-quarantine after entry into country
- Countries recovery time will vary
- Domestic travel will open first
- There may be “travel seasons”
- You will pack completely differently
- You will need to prove your immunity
- Airlines could start advertising their air quality
After you get to your destinationThe impact of COVID will not be just limited to flights and the airport experience. Likely your experience at a hotel or resort could be very different as well. I think that activities like going to the pool or playing sports like volleyball or golf will be massively changed. The overall atmosphere of the pool/game will be different. Everyone will be cautious and less focused on the whole purpose of going to the resort, relaxation and fun. On the other hand, I think activities like eating will stay almost untouched because people can just grab the food and find somewhere to eat by themselves. Overall, this pandemic has made a large impact on our lives and a huge impact on travel. Once this outbreak is over the effects on the travel industry won’t.
