Are you still feeling a little nervous at the prospect of booking airline tickets and accommodation for business trips or personal travels? You are not alone. Travel anxiety is a very real thing at the moment, and it’s no wonder really. Although governments around the globe are getting to grips with containing the COVID-19 virus and safeguarding their citizens against it, there is still a need for great caution.
However, there are ways to keep yourself as safe as possible. Here are a few top recommendations from health care experts:
Staying in a hotel or guesthouse can be very comfortable and convenient, especially if you have access to an on-site restaurant, gym, etc. However, infectious disease experts agree that the private residential environment actually poses a lower risk, simply because of the fact that there are fewer people around. This is why many business travellers are opting to stay in private rentals at the moment.
Working with a corporate travel agency when you head abroad for work is not only a great way to save a lot of money (they know all the best deals), and a lot of time (they whip up silky-smooth itineraries) - it’s also a great way to travel safely. Seasoned travel planners are switched on and plugged into the world of travel at all times; they know what’s happening when it happens, and how to address the effects it will have on their clients.
As such, it really helps to have one of these expedition mavens on your side when you plan a journey for work. It means that you won’t have to spend countless hours guessing the right way to do things - you can simply tap straight into their extensive expertise.
In between business meetings and other engagements, try to get outside to enjoy some fresh air and moderate exercise in green spaces whenever you travel. Psychologists warn that monotony can lead to a lack of motivation, and increase feelings of agitation, exhaustion, and irritability. As such, a change in routine and scenery can make a big difference.
