When you are traveling via train, bus, or flight, there is no chance that you can maintain social distancing. Also, since you are traveling with strangers, you may never know who is healthy or infected with Covid.
However, while traveling via camper van in India, either solo or with family, there is ample space to main social distancing protocols. Also, since you know the medical history of your family members, it is safe to travel with them.
More than people, Covid is transmitted especially by touching unhygienic and infected surfaces such as doorknobs, beds, toilets, etc. Even though toilets, seats, and beds at hotel rooms, trains, and flights are cleaned, one cannot be thoroughly sure about the cleaning process and maintenance since the public commonly uses them.
Carawander’s caravans are completely sanitized. It ensures that before boarding, the toilets and the beds are disinfected. During your stay, you can also sanitize commonly used surfaces. This ensures your safety and sanitation during your travels.

Covid affects them worse in comparison to young adults. They are more susceptible to contracting the virus while traveling via trains or flights.
Traveling via caravan in India is the safest option for elderly people and children as they follow and maintain all the Covid safety and social distancing protocols.
