The recent pandemic has had such a devastating impact on the lives of communities across the globe. Loved ones have caught the virus, passed away, have been made to shield or have lost jobs because of the pandemic. The fallout from the global pandemic is like nothing we have ever seen before.
While you might usually be considering your annual summer vacation around about now, this year is markedly different. With global travel being off the agenda this year, the world is seeing a downturn in tourism and holidays.
People are choosing to spend their time differently, staying at home or remaining within their home nations. Flights are no-go modes of transport for many and others simply don’t want the stress of travelling somewhere new to only to go into a lockdown or find that no beaches or tourist hotspots are open anyway. Travelling at this current time is challenging for families everywhere.
If you are adamant that you want a holiday this year, why not consider the humble road trip? Packing up your luggage into your own car and staying in your own tent in campsites across the country means that you will be able to isolate yourself from fellow tourists and you will remain socially distant at all times.
Consider taking the family to the coast, into a national park or off the beaten track. While cafes, bars and restaurants might not be open and you may struggle to find evening entertainment, you could enjoy a holiday full of quality family moments.
Getting back to nature and heading away from the home can be good for your physical health and mental well being, so plan your jaunt away in your own set of wheels.
If you are going to enjoy a staycation this year to be on the safe side, think about spending some of your days planning next year’s adventure. A staycation can be a financially prudent move in these uncertain economic times.
You can save your cash should the worst occur, and you can still enjoy making memories in the back garden with your little darlings. Check out the latest tui reviews and consider a package holiday for next summer. A package holiday for the family can take the stress out of the holiday organisation.
For an all in one price, you can enjoy your flights, accommodation, meals and excursions, if you opt for an all-inclusive vacation. Book early and you could be in line for a great deal for summer 2021.
If you do travel this year with your brood, make sure that you remain cautious. The standard advice remains, meaning that you should wash your hands at every available opportunity.
It’s vital that you have access to hand sanitiser and that you remain two metres away from others as much as possible. Road trips can keep you socially distant but there may be times when you head to a newly opened museum or a beach. Wear a face covering and keep your little darlings close by.
If in doubt, stay home – the most important thing is your health. Your holiday will have to wait.
