The New Normal in Post-Pandemic Traveling

Sherrill Wealth Management |

For the first time in a long time, travel is becoming a real possibility.

The pandemic hasn’t disappeared (and it’s not going away any time soon) but we’re turning a corner. More of us are getting vaccinated against COVID-19 every day, and more of us have a ready-to-travel mindset.

After months of doing everything from home, we’re ready to get out — and really get away!

And we’re not wasting time. About 2 in 3 folks say they have a trip planned within the next 3 months.

Most are looking to get out of state or go abroad. That’s more than since the beginning of the pandemic.

TSA airport screenings are up.

As excited as we are to get out of our COViD-19 caves, we’re also anxious. We’re worried about getting sick or stuck in our destination. And we fear the unknown.

These worries are valid. But we can manage our stress about traveling by taking action. The right planning can help us manage our anxiety and prepare for the changes that will come with post-pandemic travel.4

So, if you’re just starting to think about getting out or you’ve already booked a trip, here are some of the most important things to consider so you can make smart, safe choices and still have a great time.
