Despite a spike in COVID-19 cases, people are still going to be traveling. It’s inevitable. Flights are still taking off and roads are still open - so people will be on the move. 

Whether it’s because of family emergencies, essential work, or just visits with family and relatives, you’ll likely have some clients still hitting the roads. And now - more than ever before - safety on the go is a top concern. 

So if you have customers, employees, or clients that you know are traveling, think about giving them a promotional item to help keep them safe. Consider this pre-departure safety checklist when choosing the right promotional giveaways for travelers. This will help keep your gifts sensitive and considerate, which in return will be more appreciated. 

Experts have recommended travelers to make sure of the following:

  • Wear a mask (including at rest areas, inside gas stations) 
  • Wash or sanitize hands frequently (especially after touching things like gas pumps, door handles, other common surfaces) 
  • Pack all the essential PPE 
  • Avoid touching commonly touched surfaces 

With the right products, travelers will be more equipped to get to their destinations safely, without spreading (or catching) any germs. Here’s a look at our top 10 promotional giveaways that are perfect for traveling clients, prospects, or consumers.
