Travel during Covid - How Tech is Making Travel Easier


Author: TripsGuard

The current Covid - 19 Pandemic has sent the world into a frenzy and nowhere is this more evident than at airports.

How do you ensure that your own travel experience stays as calm as possible? With the right tech, you can ensure that your long wait in line doesn’t turn into a major headache, that your trip home goes smoothly, and that you can stay connected to friends and family while you travel!

In this article, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about COVID-19 Pandemic travel and the ways that technology can make your trip smoother.

Where are you going to get your WiFi?

Modern mobile devices have become an essential part of our lives, from staying in touch with friends and family to managing our busy work schedules.

Yet sometimes one of the biggest headaches on a business trip or vacation is finding WiFi so we can stay connected.

If you’re traveling soon, be sure to check deals from your mobile carrier, or connect at the airport for free for a few hours

What are you going to listen to music on?

If you’re traveling to a country that isn’t your own, you want to make sure your technology works wherever you go. A spare battery pack or portable charger can come in handy if it means a few more hours of listening to music as you travel.

If music helps you power through long-haul flights and road trips, knowing how to change up what’s playing can keep things interesting when you hit your destination.

In leading music apps, it is possible to listen even in flight mode, make sure that this option works, and enjoy a pleasant ride

What happens if your batteries run out, or something breaks?

If you’re traveling by plane, train, or automobile, chances are you’ll have to deal with a few hiccups. Most of these can be avoided if you plan and prepare for anything that might arise.

Start by bringing along a reliable battery charger.

That way, if your phone or camera dies on you, all it takes is a quick recharge for everything to go back to normal.

Are you going to stay connected with your partner, friends, and family?

When COVID-19 Pandemic hits, staying connected with your loved ones while they are traveling will be more important than ever.

Have you thought about how you’ll stay in touch and know that they’re OK? Between tech like mobile hotspots, apps like WhatsApp and FaceTime, video calling services like Skype, and much more, there are several ways to stay connected while you’re away from home.

All you need is a WIFI connection, everything else is free! Does anyone remember that international calls were so expensive and impossible?

Can you manage your expenses on the go?

It may be hard to believe, but some of us still pay for things like drinks, snacks, and other basic needs by handing over physical cash.

Luckily, there are several travel tech tools out there that can make managing your expenses while on business trips much easier. Whether you’re staying in a hotel or an Airbnb rental, these apps can keep track of your spending so you don’t run into any unpleasant surprises at check-out time.

Go to your nearest app store and look for Money Monitor or money control apps and you are good to go!

Look for COVID19 travel restriction

Make sure you are up to date with the latest news on the destination you are interested in traveling to, what should be presented at the entrance, and whether quarantine is required.
