After spending what feels like an eternity cooped up in homes, everyone in their own proportions is struggling to get used to the “new normal”. Especially when the new normal has completely blurred the line between our home and workplace.
While self-isolation is the need of the hour, it is also taking a toll on our mental health, making us long for a few days of peace and quietude. Of course, a vacation with friends and family is still out of bounds, but now more important than ever before we have a need arising to escape into a safe space for a few days. Staycation or more precisely stay-vacation is the new getaway trend gaining the trust of the tired city souls looking to step out only in safe places for a breath of fresh air.
Bangaloreans are extremely lucky when it comes to staycation options. There are lots of places in and around the city where you can simply disappear and be safe at the same time. You can try Savaari’s reliable taxis in Bangalore to offer you a safe, private space for the commute during lockdown. Their drivers follow a strict hygiene routine with the cabs being disinfected before and after every ride, ensuring your safety on the roads.
