7 Stress-Free Travel Destinations

The COVID-19 pandemic put a stop to most people's travel plans, and after a very long and challenging couple of years, we are now finally able to start booking trips once again. There are, of course, restrictions and new policies in place because many countries now require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test and additional steps as a result of the pandemic.

Following the right procedures will allow you to start travelling once again, and there are several destinations that will provide you with a stress-free getaway, so consider booking a trip to the following places:

Costa Rica

Visitors will not require COVID-19 testing or quarantine, so you can enter Costa Rica stress-free. If you are fully vaccinated or under the age of 18, you will be able to visit without a travel insurance policy, so you won’t feel overwhelmed and will be able to plan a great vacation.

Dominican Republic

This is one of the most accessible destinations in the Caribbean because travellers do not have to show proof of vaccination or a negative Coronavirus test, and there are also no quarantine requirements. While this information will relieve you of stress, it’s important to note that random testing is being conducted, and you will also have to fill out an electronic entry and exit form.


If you’re interested in a European getaway, you can visit France without stressing about your experience because fully vaccinated travellers will only need proof of vaccination to enter the country without any COVID-19 testing or quarantine. Unvaccinated travellers, however, will have to provide a valid reason for travel, and a negative PCR test will have to be performed before departure.


If you want the beautiful scenery and cool breezes of the Greek islands, pack your backs because most travellers will be able to enter Greece without any problems. Passengers from certain countries may be able to bypass entry testing requirements if they show proof of being fully inoculated with an approved COVID-19 vaccine.


You can also enter Ireland without testing or quarantine requirements with valid proof of vaccination against COVID-19.


If you can prove that you have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you will gain entry into Malta and will be able to have a wonderful adventure.


This is one of the most stress-free locations and is very popular because travellers will not have to worry about testing negative ahead of their flight and will not have to self-isolate on arrival. Additionally, tourists will also be able to visit without proof of vaccination against COVID-19, so Mexico is a stress-free getaway you can consider.
