Safety Tips for Travelers

Travel savvy, stay secure!

The travel industry has undergone significant changes in the past year. With health and safety protocols implemented by cruise lines, resorts, airlines, and transportation companies, it is crucial for travelers to also adopt these necessary precautions to guarantee a safe return home from their vacation.



Consider getting tested for COVID-19, as some travelers choose to know their status before traveling to prevent unintentionally spreading the virus, even if it is not a requirement in certain destinations.

  • Remember to load up on safety gear like spare masks, hand sanitizer, and a stash of disinfectant wipes. Don't forget your meds and toss in a 15-day emergency supply, just to be on the safe side!
  • It's always a good idea to have duplicates of essential documents handy. You never know when you might require a copy of your passport, driver’s license, or another form of identification.
  • Talk to your travel advisor about travel insurance policies to understand what is covered and what is not.
  • Do your research. Get to know your destination in depth before you arrive.




  • When packing your carry-on, include food, a reusable water bottle, hand sanitizer, and wipes.
  • Opt for touchless check-in options at the airport. If you arrive early, consider waiting in a restaurant or store until boarding is announced.
  • Be wary of public Wi-Fi. Don’t let the convenience of Internet access cloud your judgment.
  • Be cautious when using public Wi-Fi. Don't let the ease of Internet access compromise your security.
  • To expedite the process and minimize wait times, opt for advance check-in online or through the rental company's smartphone app when renting a car.
  • While at the hotel, utilize online check-in, mobile room key, and contactless payment options. Additionally, consider requesting less frequent room cleanings to limit the number of individuals entering your room.
  • Stay alert and observant of your surroundings. Be cautious not to lower your guard while capturing that ideal picture for your social media profiles.
  • Keep in mind to stay flexible - even though planning and having an itinerary are crucial, be prepared for unexpected bumps along the way.
