After the tragedy of 9/11 which changed travel logistics overnight, we got used to increasing airport security checks, better travel planning, and the overall idea that flying and traveling are not just fun. Travelers and holidaymakers have to co-live with the rest of the globe, foreign countries, their borders and also their threats.
The Coronavirus has been dominating headlines globally and causing kind of mass hysteria. But we should not forget that factors such as climate change, demographic trends, terrorist plots, recession and as in this case, disease, always have to be unconsciously considered when planning any trip.
As a leading Christian travel company, we are constantly in touch with the travel authorities who deal with tourism on the ground in the countries that we lead our pilgrims to. At this stage, we are relieved that none of our destinations are at all experiencing travel bans or expressing concerns for their intended visitors.
On the positive side, it is also quite true that the best time to travel is actually after a major global incident as everyone, from airport security, medical institutions, fellow passengers and even border controls are on high alert.
Prevention is better than cure:
- Make sure your travel insurance has been activated the moment your flights are booked. Ask your travel broker to double-check if you are covered for travel bans. If not, take a “top-up” option.
- Get your immune system in tip-top condition. Get enough sleep before traveling and start boosting your immune system with products such as Air-mune or Vitathion at least 3 weeks prior to departure.
- Be aware of good hygienic routines while traveling:
- Avoid touching your face,
- Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds regularly,
- Avoid sick people.
