People locked down for months (self-imposed or not) want to stretch their legs and see something other than their computer screens. Although it may seem like a risky time to start planning a holiday or even a quick getaway, perhaps a drive up to a nearby hill station – it is in fact possible to travel safely with the necessary precautions.
Pick a remote destination and start driving.
Road trips may be a relatively safe – if not completely safe – way to travel in the current circumstances. This is majorly because you are not sharing your space with strangers as you do on a train journey, bus or flight. You can hit the open road and pick a remote location, as opposed to traveling to the heart of a crowded city. There are several hidden gems around your city that can help you avoid dodging a cohort of people.
Opt for a location that offers plenty of outdoor space.
In the past couple of weeks, we have seen a spike in the number of people searching for holiday destinations that offer outdoor activities, just enough to unwind outdoors, enjoy open space and indulge in leisure activities. This would be a good time to pick that lakefront vacation rental, live close to the beach, open your windows to a hillside view or enjoy densely wooded forest trails.
Vista Rooms offers a myriad of holiday homes that are set across acres of open land with plenty of room to enjoy an outdoorsy vacation. Take your pick and give us a call!
Make note of your local travel regulations.
Although India has lifted lockdown orders from most parts of the country, many places are still operating on local regulations. It is best to stay apprised with the safety developments of your city and the neighbourhoods around. Bear in mind that many states/cities require an E-Pass to enter and masks to be worn in public.
Choose a professionally cleaned and managed holiday home.
Staycation? Yes, please. We may seem biased, but professionally managed accommodations have become the classic way to travel safely.

When choosing a holiday villa, double check for the following safety precautions.
The idea is to minimize exposure. When you’re searching for a holiday villa for a group stay, look for options that offer access to private amenities. Check the villa policy on disinfection and how they are maintaining hygiene around the villa and among the staff members. Look for essential amenities like a functional kitchen or the availability of home cooked food, so that you can avoid dining out.
A longer duration of the stay might also be a good option.
While you’re looking for places to go in order to blow off some steam or simply get away from city crowds, it might be a good idea to stay there for a couple of days/weeks. This way, you will be able to stay in a serene, secluded location with all modern amenities and resources, while living luxuriously. It could also be a good way to work-from-home in peace in a perfectly hygienic environment, without compromising your everyday lives.
