75 - Post-Pandemic Travel Essentials

Welcome to Gay Travel Today! I’m Teraj and I’ll be your guide as we explore, engage and indulge in the world of LGBTQ+ travel today.

“Looking to venture out a little this summer? USA Today published an article with 12 things we can easily implement into our travel routines to stay as healthy and comfortable as possible when traveling by air or ground this year. Obviously, using a face mask and bringing disinfecting sprays, wipes and hand sanitizers are essential. TSA is allowing for up to 12 ounce bottles of hand sanitizer, so don’t hold back! Other important items to use when traveling are reusable snack bags and water bottles. Bringing these items from home limits the number of potentially contaminated goods you could come in contact with when fueling up during a trip. Bring a portable phone charger to stay away from using public outlets or cords. Last thing to bring is a neck pillow and travel sized blanket. Many airlines have stopped offering these items, so don’t be stuck without them! What are your post-pandemic essential travel items? Share them with us by using the #GayTravelToday and #Sagitravel hashtags.

72 - The Bunk Bed of Air Travel

Welcome to Gay Travel Today! I’m Teraj and I’ll be your guide as we explore, engage and indulge in the world of LGBTQ+ travel today.

Although our travel landscape is forever evolving due to COVID-19, the air travel industry is among the first to begin thinking of safer alternatives to transport people from destination to destination. Imagine entering a plane that utilizes the overhead bin area to create double-decker seating? Zephyr Seat is the first to configure this design, which would not only provide more safety and passenger distance to prevent the further spread of COVID-19, but would also allow for more comfort without sacrificing space or reducing passenger headcount in premium economy cabins. Although this idea is still in its early stages, the design’s creator, Jeffrey O’Neill, has been fine-tuning the model over the past year and is in conversation with four major airliners, including Delta Airlines. Go ahead and give this Zephyr Seat, spelled Z-E-P-H-Y-R, design a quick search and let us know what you think by using the #GayTravelToday and #Sagitravel hashtags

71 - Chicago Spreading Safety Not Fear

Welcome to Gay Travel Today! I’m Teraj and I’ll be your guide as we explore, engage and indulge in the world of LGBTQ+ travel today.

Other cities should be taking notes! The Chicago Transit Authority decided to spread safety and not fear of the coronavirus by welcoming transit travelers back with free “Travel Healthy” kits. These kits were passed out to several of the highest-ridership rail stations and bus terminals, and included a 2 oz. bottle of hand sanitizer, reusable cloth mask and guide for staying healthy while riding public transit. This in addition to added cleaning measures, crowd management tools and capacity limits are helping to maintain social distancing measures and reduce the potential number of those infected by COVID-19. What precautions do you take now when using public transportation, or are you still avoiding public transportation? Tell us about it and when you do, be sure to use the #GayTravelToday and #Sagitravel hashtags.
