1. Look before you leap (Checking departure and destination regulations)

It is essential that you check both departure and destination regulations when traveling abroad, countries are acting toward domestic and international travels with different policies. One of the best websites is The International Air Transport Association (IATA) that you can check travel regulation updates.  You need to pay attention to all regulations announced by airlines, hotels, and even restaurants as well. Travel planning and timing need to be checked and set in advance before and after trips, since there are some regulations about staying home for 14 days after an international journey, like what the UK has announced recently. 

If you are traveling for a particular reason such as medical purposes to another country, it is also vital to take medical centers’ rules about how to treat patients during the pandemic. If you are required to prove not to be infected by a corona virus, take a test prior to your trip to prevent probable changes in destination. 

2. Make sure your insurance is valid ( Covering COVID-19 conditions )

 When traveling it’s always important to have travel insurance. This will be even more important if you are traveling during or after a pandemic, do check if the insurance covers the probable arising issues. It means, you need to go through the terms and conditions and make sure, the insurance company covers the destination countries and check if anything that might invalidate the insurance. Reviewing policy details and searching for “pandemic” or “corona virus” will help you find out about how things will be carried on in this regard.

3. Travel with a bonded travel operator (check refund policy)

We all have faced complicated situations in any business around the globe, one of the burning topics about traveling is a refund. If possible travel with a bonded tour operator. This means if you book a tour package and there is a major issue, such as if the flights are canceled, countries borders are locked or the operator goes broke and all these results in not doing the holiday you pay for, then they are legally responsible to provide either a refund or get you back you home in case you are already on a trip. 

With the purpose of being more flexible and adaptable to the situation, almost all local tour operators alongside OTAs have revised their cancellation terms and refunds, however, it does not hurt if you double-check. 

4. Book hotels, attractions, and flights with free cancellation or changes

If you are not traveling with a tour operator and you are planning on your own be cautious about reservations and bookings of flights and accommodation facilities, the best decision is to go with free cancellation hotels to be able to cancel 24 hours prior to your arrival. 

Free cancellation policy might not be an option when booking flights, but you can choose air travel services that charge no fees for changing the flights. For instance, EasyJet was allowing to change flights with no extra fee. It is recommended to read booking conditions as they may change frequently as the situation improves.

5. Stay in self- catered

Staying home for a long time, gave us a chance of cooking and having fun, many had changed their eating out habits. Traveling during and after pandemic with health guidelines leads to less desired contact with other people or strangers, so; if going to bars and crowded restaurants is a drawback, plan to stay in self- catered houses or apartments. Airbnb and booking.com are available online solutions. Traveling to Iran you could go with TripAdvisor and filter villas or cottages in an intact and rural area.  

This is also a good idea to have a self-drive or a private car to have minimum contact in transportation. 

6. Travel to rural areas (Embrace the nature)

Natural resorts may not be everyone’s favorite travel destinations, however; they are safer destinations as not being in contact with many other people. There are a lot of places to stay for domestic travelers. One of the most popular website for renting a cottage in rural areas is Nature House  where you can find very nice and cozy places to stay. Traveling to Iran we welcome you to explore the desert or have a trip to nomads and live their lifestyle where the was not even a single positive corona virus case, staying in traditional houses.

7. Small groups or private tours

Social distancing rules might apply for a long time, even after restrictions are lifted thoroughly that is why traveling with large groups will be less common in the future. Many people prefer to travel with family and friends. This will give all a chance of safer travel while keeping the costs apparently lower than individual tours. A group of friends with shared traveling interests and styles can always have their fully customized tours to Iran’s beautiful natural destinations. 

8. Pay with a credit card

If possible to do payments online, do not hesitate to do so! When traveling locally there is no problem and you can use credit cards even in the rural area.
