Horse Podcast Ep 193: Adventuring – Pre Trip Advice

Adventuring in a pandemic is what I’m calling it. This adventuress is heading out on an equestrian adventure in two weeks. Today’s podcast is all about what you need to do pre-trip.  I discuss covid, insurance, PCR tests, packing, and even tipping.  Have you ordered any foreign currency? What about your cell phone do you have an out of the country plan? Doing some research will save you a lot of time and money when it comes to travelling especially when we are still in a pandemic. This is one podcast you won’t want to miss.

Adventuring – During Covid


When it comes to travel especially international insurance is a must have. Now travelling during a pandemic the rules change. Not all insurance companies are offering covid coverage. This is where you need to do your research, make the phone call and see who is offering what. Manulife travel insurance in Canada is offering covid travel insurance which is huge. It not only coverage the medical expense but is has quarantine coverage as well. 14 days of coverage for you and your family to coverage the expense of having to extend you stay if you test positive.

Covid Test Pre/Post trip

Most countries are requiring a covid test to enter the country. Again do the research to make sure you are getting the correct test prior. Some countries are requiring the PCR test with a maximum 72 hr window prior to boarding. Or a Antigen test with a 48 hr window prior to departure. These test can range anywhere from $50 to $500. So do you research to make sure you are getting the proper test before hand. Please remember that you may be required to have another test to return home so I would suggest booking that as soon as possible for your return.
