Planning Your Next Vacation: During A Pandemic




Did you take a family vacation during 2020? Unfortunately many families had their travel plans cancelled due to covid-19. Our family had a Caribbean cruise with Royal Caribbean booked for May 2020. That was sadly cancelled. We were so excited and looking forward to our cruise. What a bummer!! We did make other plans to vacation in Florida in summer 2020 but ultimately ended up cancelling those plans as well due to high covid cases. In the end we decided on renting a beach house in the Outer Banks for a week.

Today I am going to share with you some tips and idea's for planning your next vacation during a pandemic. I feel that 2021 is going to be a much better year than 2020. Hopefully by summer 2021 majority of the population will have received the covid-19 vaccine. I feel that by summer 2021 flying will be much safer. So if you have a destination that requires flying don't worry.

Start by making a list of the top 5 places you would like to vacation. Do some research on these 5 destinations. I really like to learn about destinations on www.TripAdvisor.com. You can determine if there are a lot of activities and attractions that your whole family will enjoy. You can also read reviews on accommodations, restaurants, attractions, etc. After doing some research try to narrow down your top 5 places to just 3. Then take some time and price out these 3. You could also contact our travel agent Allison with https://www.magicalmemoryplanners.com/ and ask her to run some quotes. Once you have the prices you can sit down with your significant other and decide which vacation would be best for your family.

Things To Consider When Planning A Vacation During A Pandemic:
  • Are a lot of the activities outside activities? If so, this is definitely a plus if you are concerned about covid.
  • Would you stay in a high rise which would require you to use an elevator? 
  • Would you have to fly or drive?
  • Does the resort have enhanced cleaning procedures?
  • Are all activities open at the resort? Some resorts have closed certain activities due to covid-19
  • Is there a kitchen in your condo? This would allow you to cook your own meals and avoid restaurants and help to save money too.
  • What is the cancellation policy?
  • Is a covid test required?
