While there’s no assurance on when we can resume traveling for leisure, we must still be wary of certain adjustments that we would need to do when we travel in the near future. Best to keep these tips in mind to ensure that you travel safely.

Washing and Sanitizing at All Times

Staying protected against the virus will always entail practicing good hygiene and frequent sanitation. For starters, invest in a trusty hand sanitizer with at least 70% alcohol content to keep you protected. Apart from this, you may want to ensure that you stay in locations where safety guidelines are observed. Discovery Suites is one of the local hotels that prioritize their guests’ safety. Sanitation stations have been installed around the hotel and they even launched an entire program aimed at preventing the spread of the virus. You can learn more about it in this link.

Say No to the Aisle Seat

Low-cost airline tickets were very rampant before the pandemic as operators were able to pack as many seats as possible in airline cabins. However, given the new social distancing guidelines, we can surely expect the norm to change. While staying at the aisle seat can mean more legroom for you to stretch and less risk of you bugging your neighbor every time you need to go to the restroom, there’s more chance for you to come into physical contact with people. For this reason, you may want to consider booking the window seat instead as it could also give you spectacular views especially when flying over scenic islands like Club Paradise Palawan.

Make Time for Self-Care

If the home quarantine has shown us anything, it would definitely be the value of “me time” or having time to destress when we encounter challenging situations. Although traveling might be fun, we cannot deny that you can still go through rough patches so it’s best to keep this learning in mind at all times. Be sure to pamper yourself and unwind with a spa treatment at your destination. 

Tip: When flying out to Boracay you may want to check out the Terra Wellness Spa at Discovery Shores for relaxing massages and a range of wellness treatments.

Eat Healthy

Strengthen the first line of protection against the virus and keep your body healthy especially during travel. Stay at hotels like Discovery Primea that offer well-balanced meals in their outlets. Their restaurant, Tapenade, features a salad bar and even vegan selections for those with dietary restrictions.

Stay in Hotels with Safety Protocols

The only thing for certain right now is our need to adjust to the new normal. With the heightened risk for contracting a virus, it’s best to stay in hotel chains that put their guests’ safety first which is evident in the creation of safety protocols. Discovery Hospitality is one example of this kind of hotel chain. Read up on their health and safety protocols in this link.

  • COZY AND HOMEY. This was our 6th or 7th stay and the staff is still very accommodating. The location is strategic being right beside convenience stores, mall, and restaurants… I can say we plan to make it a habit to greet the new year here.”

  • COMFORTABLE HOME AWAY FROM HOME. I stayed in the Discovery suites hotel for 7 weeks in March and April while in Manila for work. And it was very easy for me to start calling it home after a few days! The location is great – podium mall across the street, Starbucks next door and across the street, megamall and Robinson’s galleria only a couple of blocks away.”
