Travel Safety Tips for the Big Game & Beyond

Travel Safety Tips for the Big Game & Beyond

For true sports fans nothing beats the feeling of cheering on your favorite team from the stands alongside your fellow sports enthusiasts.  For the better part of two years, the pandemic has kept many of us from experiencing the electrifying thrill of watching the big game in person.  Now, tailgates are back on and stadium sports are back in play. 

But whether youre headed to California for Sundays big game, or have plans to cheer your favorite sports team on later this year. Here are some tips to make sure your trip runs as smoothly as possible. 

Pack for Covid Restrictions

Your best defense against the unexpected is careful preparation. Pack as if youll need to quarantine. This means a few extra changes of clothes, extra spending money, and extra doses of any medication you may need. Check with the game venue to ensure that you have everything you need to adhere to their Covid safety guidelines. 

Have a Covid Contingency Plan

If someone in your party  develops Covid symptoms, youll want to have a contingency plan in place. This should involve everyone in your group getting tested for Covid, notifying your hotel or lodging provider of the results and following whatever protocols the establishment has in place. If youre renting a vacation home, have a designated quarantine room or area. 

Rent a Vacation Home 

Whether youre traveling to the big game over the weekend or plan to cheer on your home team at an away game, you might be planning on renting a vacation home for the duration of your stay. Since the pandemic, many travelers have preferred booking rental homes as opposed to a hotel. Vacation rentals are a good way to limit the number of people you have contact with to just the members of your own group. 

Consider Trip Insurance with a Cancel For Any Reason Option

While many fans may want to revel in the camaraderie and sportsmanship in person, some might still be wary. 

As game day approaches, fans should exercise caution. If youre concerned you might need to cancel your trip, a trip insurance plan with a Cancel For Any Reason benefit can help ease the financial burden associated with cancellation.

While canceling your trip plans is never fun, this coverage can help you recoup prepaid expenses like unused game tickets, as well as rental home and hotel deposits. 

The return of spectator sports is, of course, a promising sign that the global efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19 are working. Still, sports fans should do what they can to keep themselves and their fellow fans safe.
