Many of us who have been in quarantine for months are itching to break free from confinement. Once travel restrictions start to ease, some will probably take the opportunity to escape to a destination where they can relax and reenergize at the same time. And whether the trip is for business or pleasure, staying safe should remain top priority for everyone who is planning to travel in the months to come.

Familiarize yourself with the health and safety guidelines

The best way to stay safe while travelling is to follow World Health Organization’s advice for public regarding COVID-19 as closely as possible.

Practice good hygiene

COVID-19 spreads through droplets of saliva or mucus, so be wary and avoid coming into close contact with people coughing and sneezing. You will also have to be mindful of what you touch in public places while travelling. Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, nose and mouth with unsanitized hands, as bacteria and virus enter through these body parts.

Bring travel essentials

Make sure to pack these items with you for a safe and hassle-free transit: face mask or face shield, alcohol or hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, pen, vitamins.

Take the extra step of sanitizing your surroundings

While many transportation services have implemented enhanced sanitation protocols, there is no guarantee that every surface will get the full treatment. It won’t hurt to bring extra antibacterial wipes to clean your seat, armrest, and basically everything you will be touching during your trip.

Fight the low humidity that comes with air travel

The low humidity in airplanes can dry out your mucous membranes that’s responsible for blocking out viruses, leaving you more vulnerable to airborne infections. Make sure to drink lots of water and stay hydrated while on board.

Feeling under the weather? You might want to consider staying home

Are you exhibiting symptoms of coronavirus? If you are not sure of what to do, always follow your national health authority’s advice.​ Symptoms of COVID-19 vary, but mild cases frequently experience fever, cough, and fatigue. Moderate cases may have difficulty breathing or mild pneumonia. For serious symptoms, seek immediate medical attention.

Remember that we cannot always fully know who are infected, and we don’t want to risk passing it on especially to those who are more vulnerable. This is why keeping our distance from one another is crucial in slowing down the spread of the virus. So be careful and stay safe!

  • BEST HOTEL IN BORACAY… NO, BEST HOTEL IN THE PHILIPPINES! Discovery Shores Boracay is Filipino hospitality at its best. Having been to different hotels in the world, I have never found a hotel where you feel the same level of hospitality, service and care from every staff member you meet. It’s beyond feeling at home.”

  • THE BEST RESORT ON THE ISLAND. We have been to many resorts on Boracay, but this is the best by far. The staff are very accommodating, very nice. Kids have a kids room and an activity every 4pm. There are free snacks and snow cones poolside the whole day. The rooms are comfy and cold. The food is yummy. Definitely worth the price!”
