Car trips are the way to travel safer this summer



Pandemic First Aid Equipment

You need seven things, according to Jeff Weinstein, a paramedic and medical operations manager for Global Rescue, which provides medical and emergency response services to travelers.

You are likely to already have three: masks, hand cleansers and disinfecting wipes.

Wear isopropyl alcohol wipes and use them to wipe your phone. Major smartphone manufacturers say they will not damage devices.

Bring some detergent to wash reusable masks on overnight trips.

Fever is a Covid-1

9 symptom, so bring a travel thermometer to monitor your temperature.

Also think of a digital pulse oximeter, which measures your oxygen levels non-invasively. Any reading below 94% applies, says Weinstein. Prices vary and some are under $ 30.

Pre-planning

Danielle Desir, 29, always packs snacks and disposable blankets and researches the destination in advance to find out about the restrictions.

"We pack our own water and snacks," said Desir, who has a podcast about affordable travel and personal finance. "We're not always sure what will be available at the destination, and we don't want to be turned away."

Be Prepared for Rebellion: Desir and his girlfriend went for a walk and found that the tower at the top of the mountain was closed. "The site didn't mention it," she said.

It is important to stay informed about the reopening stages of the place you are visiting.

"Make sure you go to the area's tourism board for updates and see what things are going to be open," Desir said. For example, some restaurants may only offer takeaway. Others may require reservations.

Flight risk

Clean that car

Perhaps even more dangerous than sitting on a plane, says Dan Richards, CEO of Global Rescue, sitting in a rental car or taxi.

If you rent, make sure to wipe down and disinfect surfaces. Open windows and doors and give the car time to vent – five to 10 minutes should do so, says Richards. Your own vehicle is safe, he adds.
