Planning a vacation for this year? Check out all the initiatives our member hotels are taking against COVID-19 to have the perfect getaway.
The traveling industry has been one of the most affected by COVID 19, the way of traveling has completely changed and there is no going back. From hand sanitizers in hotel lobbies to cabin crew in masks, localized lockdowns to contact tracing apps, COVID-19 has transformed the world of travel. We are currently living in times of uncertainty where we don’t feel completely safe but at the same time, we are longing to return to normal life. I think we all can agree that we need a break from everything that is happening around us. People want to forget their worries and that is why the tourism sector is slowly reactivating again.
According to the United Nations’ World Tourism Organisation, 100% of global destinations had implemented travel restrictions at the peak of the pandemic. UNWTO Secretary-General Zurab Pololikashvili said: “Tourism has shown its commitment to putting people first. Our sector can also lead the way in driving recovery. This research on global travel restrictions will help support the timely and responsible implementation of exit strategies, allowing destinations to ease or lift travel restrictions when it is safe to do so. This way, the social and economic benefits that tourism offers can return, providing a path to sustainable recovery for both individuals and whole countries.”
