Regardless of whether you are travelling to Europe or you are just travelling around the UK, there are several elements that you need to consider to make sure that you are travelling safely. To help you get started, here is a bit of insight into some of the important health notices that you should consider before you are travelling.
Health Insurance And GHIC’s Are A Must
When you are travelling, it is hugely important to make sure that you are protected should you fall ill and therefore having both health insurance and GHIC cards are a must, particularly when travelling following the pandemic. Whether you apply for a GHIC weeks in advance of your travelling or you are renewing your travel insurance, it is important to make sure that you have everything you need to be organised before you are travelling.
Be Aware Of Travel Restrictions
In addition to the need for travel insurances and GHICs, it is important to make sure that you are aware of travel restrictions. Whether this is the closure of borders to places such as America or restrictions surrounding the accommodation that you can stay in, you need to be sure that you are aware of any of these restrictions that could significantly impact your holiday in the long term. By taking the time to look at these restrictions beforehand, you are able to plan your trip to ensure that everyone remains safe and secure when you are travelling.
Make Sure You Get All Your Vaccines
When you have begun to plan your trip and account for all the restrictions that are in place, it is then time to make sure you have all the vaccines that you are required to have. Not only do you need to make sure you have vaccines for common illnesses, but you also need to make sure that you have the Covid vaccinations that are needed. With the use of the Covid NHS test and trace app as a travel passport, it is important to make sure that you are aware of all the vaccines as well as the travel passport that is needed.
Quarantine For Travellers
The final element that you need to consider when you are travelling is the quarantine process for those that are travelling. Regardless of whether you are travelling abroad for the summer or you are travelling to Scotland for a weekend away, there are several testing and quarantine rules that you need to follow to ensure that you remain safe when travelling. Regardless of whether you are travelling as a family or you are looking to travel on your own, making sure that you are aware of these rules and are accommodating the time needed for quarantine in your travel plans.
With this in mind, there are several elements that you need to consider when you are travelling to make sure that you are doing so safely under the new quarantine rules. Have you booked anything or are you hanging on for a while?
