Since 2020, international travel has been largely off the table. Now that travel has become safer, families, couples, and solo-adventurers are beginning to explore the possibility of sightseeing again.
Though exercising caution is still recommended, many types of travel and destinations can safely be explored in 2022. Regardless of the type of traveler you are, there’s a perfect trip for you that’s just waiting to be booked.
The social butterfly
After a couple years of social distancing, you’re probably itching to meet new people. Fortunately, travel experiences based around making new social connections and just simply having a good time are finally possible again.
Group travel and tours can be done safely as long as you take the necessary precautions. When booking group travel, make sure you book with companies that offer refunds in case of event cancellations or new restrictions.
If you’ve always wanted to go to Greece and experience a Zante Harbor boat party, now is your chance. The Zante Mega Deal offers the best price package and fee-free COVID-19 related booking modifications and cancellations.
The luxury traveler
After the last couple of years, you might be ready to travel and be pampered at the same time. Travel can be fast-paced and hectic, but by centering your next trip around wellness, you can reap the mental health benefits of travel.
Luxury travel may also be more covid-safe. For accommodation, rent out an entire place on Vrbo or Airbnb. It’s also a good idea to try to pick countries that aren’t experiencing high numbers of hospitalizations. Whether you want to enjoy a Finnish spa or eat at the fanciest restaurants in Paris, there’s a luxury trip option for you.
The slow traveler
Even before the pandemic, people were beginning to point out the environmental impacts of fast travel from one destination to the other and the importance of responsible tourism. The pathways down to the fairy pools on the Isle of Skye were being trampled by the unrelenting number of guests they received each summer, and the emissions from flight travel that could be done by train raised alarm bells.
Slow travel encourages quality over quantity. Some great options for 2020 include doing the Camino de Santiago (a multi-day walk through the Northwest of Spain), or even picking your favorite destination and spending a week or two exploring its best restaurants and attractions.
The outdoorsy type
Once you’ve traveled enough, cities can begin to look the same. Chain restaurants, bustling roads, and the sounds of sirens at night become tiring. A great alternative to booking trips around famous cities like London and Paris is to plan trips around natural wonders.
If you’re a wilderness traveler, traveling in 2022 might look like exploring the countless icebergs, volcanos, and hot springs that Iceland has to offer. You may also choose to hire a guide to take you through the Amazon forest in Brazil, or take a roadtrip through Australia’s outback.
While COVID-19 hasn’t disappeared altogether, you can (and should) still take the opportunity to safely explore all that life has to offer.
