Are You Ready For A More Expensive Trip?

If you want to travel in post covid era then the travel expense is more expensive than you usually spend. With more travel precautionary measures,  travel expense is way more costly from test to mask. Everything is essential for traveling. The news that Singapore will welcome tourists from the Philippines from March 4 bodes well for many. One of the most popular summer destinations, Singapore has banned Filipino tourists for more than two years. Many people, myself included, are excited to rediscover ancient places or hop on a plane and be able to fly anywhere after COVID-19 severed our wings so long.

Before you pack, it’s a good idea to have your wallet ready for more than just airfare. Some may be accustomed to the extra cost of basic travel, but the new cost may surprise leisure travelers.

These are some of the extras that tourists have to pay to ensure a safer trip for everyone.
