Break out of your at-home rut — now is the right time to travel. As the COVID-19 pandemic slows in the United States, vacations are calling, with people yearning for normalcy, lower travel prices, and comprehensive safety protocols, beckoning travelers to hit the road or head to the sky.

Here’s a look at why you should consider booking a vacation right now.

Craving Human Connection

To a world stifled by the COVID-19 pandemic, loosened health restrictions are welcome news for those who have stayed mostly at home for the past year and a half.

In many areas, a large percentage of people — and travelers — are fully vaccinated. That is giving the majority of Americans the courage to travel again with less worry.

“The events of 2020 have underscored the importance of human connection and quality time with loved ones,” says Mark Crossey, Skyscanner’s United States travel expert.

Science Proves Vacations Are Good for You

Vacations aren’t just must-needed breaks from hard work — they can make you healthier.

Vacations have been shown to lower heart attack risks by 50% for women and 30% for men.

Other backed-by-science benefits include allowing you to switch into long-dormant calm vacation mode and being able to perform better at work once you return.

There Are Deals to Be Had

While vacation travel is still at a low, that means there are some exceptional deals on flights. Tickets continue to be cheaper than typical for this time of year.

Now is the best time to book summer or fall travel to take advantage of the current low fares. And because of the pandemic, most airlines are allowing greater flexibility in cancellation and rebooking for consumers.

Even typically costly round trips, such as flying from New York City to Maui, are more affordable than ever — and you can book flights through the end of the year.

Hotels are also getting in on the act, offering low home costs to entice formerly hesitant travelers to take a long-delayed vacation.

Vacation clubs, such as the Royal Holiday Vacation Club Orlando, are taking advantage of attraction re-openings to urge their members to reserve club properties again.

Safety Protocols Are in Place

Though masks are required for public travel — planes, trains, buses — it’s likely your destination will have a strict safety protocol even as traveling heats back up. That includes procedures in place at popular attractions, shops, theaters, bars, and restaurants.

Many hotels and resorts are going several steps further.

For example, travel safety leader Royal Holiday vacation club is instituting a thoroughly safe guest program. The program includes regular cleaning and disinfecting using advanced products, requiring social distancing, and taking particular cleaning precautions in common areas, including pools and entertainment venues.

Bottom Line

So get out there and travel. Take that trip you’ve been putting off for far too long; rest on a beach, walk through a museum and see family and friends once more. The world is waiting for you.
