How to Plan a Safe Honeymoon Trip During COVID-19

Coronavirus has affected the entire human race, but, specifically, couples who just got married, so weddings are not the only events being impacted by the global health pandemic; honeymoons are too.

Planning a wedding during a pandemic is not easy. And just when you thought that the struggle is over after a successful wedding celebration, you’ll realize that it’s not yet the end. You still have to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable honeymoon.

Check out these tips to plan a safe honeymoon trip amid the COVID-19 crisis.

Plan Sooner Than Later

Planning is the most crucial part of event planning, and it is more inevitable now during a pandemic. With many countries, cities, and destinations still under restrictions, you want to make sure everything is well-planned.

When planning your honeymoon, start by determining your budget. This way, you can narrow down your options. Next, decide on whether you’re flying abroad or choosing a local destination instead.

It’s always great to work with a travel advisor as traveling these days is quite complicated. Many cities and countries will have additional entry requirements, quarantine rules, testing procedures, etc.

Event planners are some of the most knowledgeable people who can help you organize your honeymoon trip with ease.

Stay Tuned With CDC Guidelines

As of August 2021, the CDC recommends that people who are not yet fully vaccinated should not travel. Even if you’re fully vaccinated, international travel poses additional risks as many countries deal with different variants of COVID-19.

Before you travel, the CDC recommends that you follow all airline destinations related to mask-wearing, testing, and quarantine. Some airlines and hotels conduct on-site testing. You may also be required to present a negative COVID-19 test result no more than three days before your travel.

After your trip, you will still need to be tested within three to five days, self-monitor, and isolate for fourteen days.

Lastly, check the CDC’s travel recommendations. They regularly post which countries have the highest number of COVID-19 cases so you can plan your trip accordingly.

Check Local Requirements And Restrictions

You should also check the local requirements of the destination you chose for your honeymoon trip. Most hotels have limited capacity so it’s important to book in advance. The same thing for recreational destinations, including parks, museums, and shopping malls.

In some cities, enhanced community quarantine is still enforced so some destinations might be closed on certain days or times. There might also be curfews and travel bans so be sure to check in with the local government’s website of your chosen destination for more information.

Fill Out COVID-19 Forms

Most countries now require visitors to fill out COVID risk evaluation forms. You will most likely fill out similar forms as you enter different establishments within your destination country. Even in hotels before you check-in, you might still be asked to go through some assessments.

Always bring with you your travel documents and health certifications, such as your negative COVID test result, approved entry form, vaccination card, etc.

Some hotels and tourist destinations provide a more seamless check-in process wherein you can send pertinent information digitally, including your COVID forms and test results.

Consider RFID Technology

RFID is a very useful technology during this pandemic because it allows contactless payments and transactions.

However, they are not safe against hacking. As some RFID chips are rewritable, hackers can even delete or replace RFID information with their data.

This is where popular RFID blocking wallets prove useful. They can prevent scanners from accessing the information stored in your cards and IDs so you can make financial transactions without worries.

Look for Nature-Driven Properties

According to the CDC, the virus that causes COVID-19 easily spreads in enclosed spaces. To lower your risk of getting infected during your trip, it’s best to look for nature-driven destinations.

Parks, beaches, and farms are ideal honeymoon destinations because you get to enjoy the best of nature. Plus, it’s easier to observe social distancing in open spaces.

Whenever possible, book a destination that’s quite secluded or doesn’t have enough guests. The smaller the crowd, the better.

Be Extra Organized When Packing

You want to make sure you have everything you need to travel safely. Avoid overpacking so you can travel with ease. Keep your health information and travel documents in your hand-carry bag for easy access.

Pack extra hand sanitizers, disinfecting wipes, face masks, antibacterial soaps, and other COVID-19 essentials. Always carry a disinfectant spray so you can sanitize surfaces like tables and chairs before using them. Don’t forget to bring your vitamins. You need to keep your immunity strong.

Enjoy!

Lastly, don’t forget to enjoy each other’s company. A honeymoon is a very special moment for newly-wed couples. Don’t let the anxiety over COVID-19 get in the way. As long as you are observing the health protocols, you should be fine. Make every moment count to ensure a happy and unforgettable honeymoon trip.

Conclusion

Coronavirus has affected the entire human race, but, specifically, couples who just got married, so weddings are not the only events being impacted by the global health pandemic; honeymoons are too.

Even though the pandemic has brought us so much fear and anxiety, it’s still possible to plan and organize a safe and enjoyable honeymoon trip following the tips we introduced.

Whether you’re traveling locally or internationally, make sure to plan ahead, stay up-to-date with health guidelines, check local requirements in your chosen destination, and use tools and technology that give you peace of mind.
