In light of the corona virus’s impact on the globe, I wanted to reach out to you personally and share some safe-travel tips for you to make sure you’re taking every precaution while flying. Whether it’s for business or pleasure, it’s no surprise that this contagion has people concerned about their well being during their otherwise, unavoidable travel plans. Use these tips to make your journey a much safer one.
1: Wash your hands as often as you can.
It’s especially a good idea to keep your hands clean when you’re traveling. At airports, on public transportation, and at tourist attractions, you’re bound to touch a lot of things, so help cut down your risk by washing your hands diligently. Keep a bottle of alcohol-based hand sanitizer in your purse or backpack to use when soap and water aren’t available.
2: Make sure you have travel insurance.
It’s smart to have travel insurance anytime you go abroad, but especially while the novel coronavirus spreads. If you get sick, want to cancel a trip, or need assistance abroad, a travel insurance can help you cut down your costs and keep you safe.(P.S If you don’t have travel insurance, don’t worry, we offer FREE cancellations)
3: Fly Business or First Class.
The Wall Street Journal states, “Another study modeling risk between economy class and first class concluded with the obvious: the chances of exposure are lessened if there are fewer people around you. If a flight is full, there would be less chance of getting infected in first class compared with coach.”
