In a world plagued by coronavirus, many Americans no longer feel safe flying. Still, we’re all going to need a vacation when this pandemic is over. That’s where Greenleaf Rent A Car comes into play. With a clean, affordable car rental, you can escape to your next stateside adventure without risking your health in a crowded airport.
Times (and travel) are changing.
In all likelihood, public transportation and travel will never look the same again. Rigorous screenings and temperature checks have become the norm at airports. While these measures are intended to slow the spread of the virus, they also significantly slow the airport check-in process. Many travelers are put off by these invasive measures and have turned to car travel to avoid any health-related risks altogether.
Plan your road trip carefully.
If you opt for a road trip, vigilant planning is critical. Many businesses have shuttered their doors or are operating on an altered schedule as a result of the pandemic. As such, it is more important than ever to plan your trip carefully. Don’t simply rely on the internet for information; instead, call restaurants, hotels, campgrounds, and gas stations to make sure they will be available when you need them. Also, plan your breaks strategically to minimize stops and exposure to crowded areas.
Pack like your life depends on it.
Packing for your trip also requires careful planning. As social distancing measures will likely be in effect for many months to come, packing masks and disposable gloves is a wise option. Additionally, be sure to include hand sanitizer, hand soap, and paper towels to have ample provisions for frequent hand washing. Pack disinfectant wipes, too, so you can routinely wipe down high-touch surfaces in your vehicle, including the steering wheel, key fob, safety belts, and door handles.
Reserve your car in advance.
