Planning the Ultimate Trip: How to Plan a Safe Trip to Las Vegas, According to Travel Experts
Canceled flights, delayed events, unhappy customers—with the COVID-19 crisis taking a turn for the worse, it seems as if unfulfilled travel promises are the order of the day.
Cruises have been stuck because of the outbreak. Major airlines such as EasyJet, Ryanair, Virgin Atlantic, and more either cut their flights substantially or canceled them altogether, suspending operations for the foreseeable future.
If you had travel plans, you may be a little worried about how you’ll get to your destination. For those looking to travel to a major city like Las Vegas, here are some things you need to know that’ll make traveling safer and easier.
Travel Tips for Your Las Vegas Trip
– Consider Delaying Small Plans
If you wanted to take a ‘fun’ trips to Las Vegas for a family reunion, consider delaying the trip. The World Health Organization has advised that everyone follow social distancing rules and stay at home as much as possible.
So if there’s a possibility that non-essential plans can be delayed, move them to a much later date.
– Know What’s Open
Although most businesses in Las Vegas did get the greenlight to reopen on May 15th, many haven’t yet implemented this ruling.
So if you’re coming to Las Vegas for a long trip, keep in mind that most businesses will either be closed or will be open in a limited capacity.
– Reconsider Your Hotel Stay
Find out your hotel’s policy on cancellations during the COVID-19 outbreak. For most who’ve prepaid for their hotel stays, it can be risky to cancel, so you will have to wait for the hotel to get back to you with their policy.
– Add a 14-Day Quarantine to Your Trip
Las Vegas has mandated that all travelers to the city spend 14 days in quarantine, self-isolating, and monitoring for symptoms. This means that aside from your essential trip, you’ll have to add two weeks. If you can take two weeks off, do so. However, if time is limited, consider delaying your trip or have someone in Las Vegas do the task you wanted to travel for.
– Travel Safely
And by that we mean be hygienic and safe when traveling. Follow all safety protocols set by the CDC. Wear a standard mask and gloves, and use hand sanitizers or hand wipes before using anything on the plane.
Disinfect your luggage if you’re using a short-term luggage storage service in Las Vegas like Cubby, and maintain a minimum of six feet of distance for safety. You’ll feel at ease knowing you’re following all the right steps.
At present, Cubby offers baggage storage in ten other major cities, including Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Galveston, Dallas, Atlanta, Austin, Houston, Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Redwood City. So we know a thing or two about safe travels.
Remember, stay safe and do your part in flattening the curve so we can defeat this crisis swiftly and efficiently!
