Sun Sun Sun – this is one of the top reasons people go away especially from countries that are cold or have an inconsistent summer climate (like the UK!) A week long soak up as much vitamin D as you can and enjoy the beach, a few glasses of sangria and just relax.

Food Food Food – Foodie holidays are great for those who really enjoy eating out, trying new dishes and even learning a new skill at a cookery school. Its a great way to feel part of the culture by eating local dishes and sampling new tasty delights

You are in safe hands…

In these strange times it is important more than ever to now support locally, support your country and support all the businesses around us that have been closed for 3 months in the most busiest times of the year.

How does this affect travel plans?
Many people may be still anxious and nervous about jetting off around the world this summer but look around and see what is on your doorstep. With a short journey you can explore your own country and what it has to offer! We sometimes don’t see what is closest to us and you will be surprised how much there is to learn about a place plus you speak the locals language – no translations needed!

How does this help?
You are helping to support many businesses that may have to close or go into administration due to the loss over the past few month – they may even be able to survive this crisis. You will also be helping the economy to grow and survive.

What does this mean?
Even if you are travelling with your medical oxygen please do let us know as we can help supply this for you at your chosen accommodation. But ultimately you will be able to take a short journey whether it is a drive, train journey or a short boat crossing and not feel anxious about venturing to a foreign country.

You will also be able to relax more knowing your own countries coronavirus rate, where is safe and also how to behave with the ‘rules’ Each country has its own rules for example if you travel or are in the UK you would have to self quarantine for 14 days but if you took a drive to another city you do not need to but still can explore places such as the wonderful cities or beautiful countryside for a long weekend or even week and learn so much about another area!

Please do let our team know if you are planning to travel with medical oxygen and we can help you – you are in safe hands.

The 5 European destinations you can travel to now…

Europe

With lock-down easing it is hard to not want to get out and travel. The summer is just beginning and the climates are now warmer. For those looking and thinking about travel outside their country here are the 5 European countries which may be more likely to allow travel from abroad this summer:

  1. Italy – Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced its borders to countries within the European Union from June 3 and will keep a close eye on its rate and if it increases again. 
  2. Greece – This country has had a very low coronavirus rate due to immediate lock-down so international flights will resume from July 1. 
  3. Iceland – From June 15th restrictions will be eased and tests may be required instead of the 14 day quarantine rule.
  4. Portugal – Again another country that wants to let tourists in and the 14 day quaratine restriction will not apply here.
  5. Sweden – This country has not even been in a full lock-down mode compared to other countries and will accept European Union visitors plus UK, Norway and Switzerland

Please do take a look at our Oxygen A-Z Guide here plus all your travel needs if you are planning a trip in Europe with medical oxygen.

Please do check official websites before making travel plans as we know this situation changes daily and therefore governments may bring in different rules as above.

Spain is now open!

Spain - Balearic islands

Tourism accounts for 12% of Spain’s GDP, employing 2.6 million people, with the Canary and Balearic archipelagos relying almost solely on tourists. Coronavirus has hit the country and the industry hard but now we are easing out of lock-down and starting to become ‘the new normal’.

Spain has announced that they will welcome visitors from 1st July without the 2 week quarantine measure in place. This is good news for the tourism industry and also for many visitors who have been dreaming of travel, holidays and visiting loved ones for the past 3 months.

Spain will not enforce the 2 week quarantine rule but for example returning home may mean you will have to still quarantine on your return to your home country. Please do check government websites for more details if you are planning to travel.

Remember to exercise even if still self-isolating at home

The British Lung Foundation have put together this video to demonstrate exercises that help keep your muscles strong. A lot of us have been at home and sitting down more than we are used to. These exercises remind us that we still need to maintain our strength during this challenging time. If you still cannot go out or only for a short period of time and you are getting short of breathe, here are some exercises that help give breathing techniques and also at different levels.

Watch the video and keep your muscles strong.
