20 Tips For Easy Vegan Travel

by admin

Traveling is easy for some people. Some people are spontaneous and can just get up and move. It can be more challenging for vegans.

We think it is difficult. There are many vegan travelers out there, including myself, who have been able to travel the world without having to be vegan.

How do they do it? How can they get from one destination to the next, find nutritious vegan meals in places that don’t even know what the word “vegan” means?

It was also a mystery at first. After becoming vegan, and trying to resist any non-vegan temptations, I began to explore different countries. I survived, and then I discovered what makes vegan travel so much easier.

These 20 tips will help you travel more easily as a vegan.

1 – Travel with other vegans

Traveling with vegan friends is a great way to keep veganism alive.

It can be hard to find vegan options. But, if you have a group of people, it will make it easier. You’re less likely to succumb to temptation if you’re surrounded with other strong-willed vegetarians and vegans.

It can be much easier to travel with vegans. Traveling with a meat-eater might be difficult as they may not be able to help you find vegan restaurants or cafes. It’s easy to feel pressured into eating at a restaurant that doesn’t offer vegan options. This is when you might feel pressured to give in and eat somewhere without a single vegan option. That’s not what you want.

2 – Don’t expect to find a lot of vegan options

There will be many options for plant-based meals in certain places, making it a vegan paradise. However, it’s possible that plant-based living is a ridiculous idea in some places.

These places might not have vegan options, so they might offer them as an option. You might end up with a makeshift vegan meal from a cafe or restaurant every now and again. These makeshift meals aren’t always very good, so find a place that caters to vegans.

Although it might take some searching, even in areas where the meals are heavily meat-oriented, you will find something. You shouldn’t expect to find a lot of choices. Expecting a wide range of menu options will only make you more disappointed. You should be realistic about your expectations. If you do find a place that is a plant-based paradise, it will be a pleasant surprise.

3: Pack your favourite vegan sauce or salad dressing

While some might find it crazy to pack your own condiments for vegan travel, any vegan traveler will be able to understand. You’ll likely have seen them do it, and if not, they’ll be glad they did.

Many sauces and dressings, which you wouldn’t think of as containing animal products, aren’t vegan. Even us who are plant-based don’t want to eat plain old lettuce when we order salads.

You can make your own condiments by buying a few packets or bottles of your favorite sauces and dressings.

You will find a supermarket no matter where you are. If you can find one, at least you will find lettuce. And, if you have your own sauces, you’ll be able to make a delicious lunch.

4 – Pack lots of vegan snacks

Vegan travel is easy when you pack vegan snacks. Traveling as a vegan can be difficult because you may not have access to vegan food options immediately.

It makes it easier to find vegan food in unfamiliar places if you have vegan snacks. To keep you going, you can munch on your favorite treats.

These also make it easier to plan day trips. You won’t find vegan food options if you go on a hike or to a tourist attraction such as a national park. You’ll be prepared for long days with snacks and a picnic. You won’t have to go back to the store for food if you have snacks prepared.

5: Find out how to find out if something’s vegan

Communication is a major problem for vegan travelers. People without dietary restrictions will often order whatever they want. While it’s simple to understand the basics of what’s in a dish, knowing the language is essential if you want to find out if there are eggs or milk in the dish will require some additional knowledge.

Do some research before you go to a new place. Learn how to ask for vegan food. It might seem obvious, but it is important to learn the language for “yes” and “no”, so that you can ask them what they think.

While you might be aware of which menu items contain animal products, some menu items may surprise you. You might be surprised at what you can find if you ask for vegan options.

6 – Take a look at Instagram for inspiration

You might feel alone when you travel vegan. But don’t be discouraged. There are many of us out there, and we love sharing our vegan experiences on Instagram.

You might also find vegan food photos by searching your destination on Insta. Also, you can search for #vegan and then your destination. I searched #veganchamonix because I was writing an eBook in Chamonix. This is a small town and not many people know about it. My search may not have returned many results but I did get at least someresults. You’ll find thousands upon thousands of posts if you type in something larger, such as #vegansanfrancisco. Many of them will have geotags or mention the location in the caption. This will make it easy to find vegan recipes that look good.

7: Learn how to code certain ingredients

You might also want to know how to ask for vegan ingredients.

This will make shopping at the supermarket much easier. You can scan the back of the package to check for animal products ingredients if you are unsure if something is safe to eat.

There will also be places where the word “vegan” is not used. A blank stare might be all that you get when you ask about vegan options. You’ll be able to ask the question without having to use the term “vegan” and get the answer.

8 – If possible, book self-catering accommodation

People enjoy eating out because they are more convenient and pleasant. However, for vegans it can be a lot more difficult than cooking at home. There isn’t much choice, which makes it worse for fussy vegetarians. ).

Self-catering accommodation is a great way to save yourself the hassle of searching for food and avoid awkward dining out. You’ll be able to prepare delicious vegan meals at your accommodation without any hassle and with no time spent searching.

Self-catering can also make travels much more affordable. Booking.com and Airbnb are often cheaper than hotels and can sometimes be as cheap as hostels. You can often find hostels that have kitchens so you can prepare your own meals. Also, you won’t have to spend money eating out.

9 – Ask your hotel/hostel for information about local vegan options

You can book self-catering, but if you are interested in eating out, you can ring ahead to find out about vegan options available locally.

You’ll be able to get a better idea of what’s available. You won’t be disappointed if there isn’t much available for vegans when you arrive. You can also plan your meals ahead if you find plenty of plant-based options.

If you aren’t sure where to stay, you can always call around and see if there is a better place. It’s possible to find a place with other vegans. If you don’t know where to go, you might find someone who can help you.

10: Pinterest is your source of inspiration

Pinterest is just as helpful for vegan inspiration as Instagram. You can search Pinterest for vegan options near you and find cafes and restaurants that you wouldn’t have otherwise.

You can search for ‘(your location) vegan’ or “(your destination] vegan restaurants” on Instagram.

11 – Find other vegans in your area and vegan travelers online

It is always great to have a friend who lives the same lifestyle as you. Finding other vegan travelers can make your trip even more enjoyable.

You can share stories and discuss veganism, and maybe even learn from one another. You often hear about the best cafes from others.

You can also find other vegans to share your passion for veganism, especially if you are traveling solo or with a small group.

You can find vegans in many places online. You can find other vegans in social media communities and groups.

Traveling Friends

12: Look for health food shops

People make the first mistake when searching for vegan restaurants and cafes. While this is what you are looking for, there aren’t many restaurants or cafes that claim to be vegan.

Instead, look for health food stores. They are often specialized in healthy and organic products. However, as you likely know, veganism can be quite healthy so they will have lots of vegan options.

Many health food cafes also offer products that you can take home.

13 – Do your research before you start

You don’t want to be lost when you travel. It is important to know what vegan food options are available.

Search for vegan cafes and shops in your area on vegan blogs. You never know when someone might have been to your destination as vegan and, if they have, you may find an article that explains everything.

14 – Pack enough eco cosmetics for a long time

It is more difficult to find eco cosmetics in foreign countries than it is to find vegan food options. If you want enough, make sure you have plenty of food. This is if you don’t want to have to search for and ask for eco products or services in another language.

You will need to have enough supplies if you are traveling for a long time. However, you don’t want your luggage to run wild the moment you arrive at your destination.

15 – Accept that you may have to eat a lot

You might need to accept that your meals will mostly consist of fruits and salad if you don’t have a cooking area in your accommodation.

There will always be fruits and salads in supermarkets. So even if restaurants aren’t very accommodating, don’t be surprised if you don’t find many options for warm food. Although everyone loves a good vegan hamburger, it is not possible to find one in every location.

16 – Book your flight meals in advance

You need to consider what food you will eat onboard the plane. This is especially important if you are flying long distances.

Although planes can accommodate vegans, they may need to be notified in advance if you are requesting a particular meal. You can avoid any disappointment by booking your plane meal in advance.

A side note, but it’s worth noting that if you are hoping to be upgraded you may want to say goodbye to the possibility of being upgraded if your order is a vegan meal. Many airlines won’t upgrade passengers with special diets because they don’t know if they can cater to them.

17 – Double-check’vegans’

Veganism is becoming more popular, but it does not mean that everyone understands the concept. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

Even if you have asked for vegan ingredients and received a confident “yes”, it is worth asking again about the ingredients. Sometimes people assume that you mean vegetarian. Or they may just want to please you.

18: You can be 100% certain about your veganism

You’ll be more likely to make a mistake if you travel with doubts about your veganism.

Remind yourself why you chose to be vegan before you set out on your journey. And if you are serious about making this lifestyle change, you should not give in to temptation.

19: Be ready for mishaps

Sometimes miscommunications can happen. Even if you double-check everything you eat. You might end up with a vegan hamburger that isn’t entirely vegan. But it’s not the end.

You can still be considered a vegan if you don’t eat hot dogs or cheese fondues.

It doesn’t matter what you do, but it matters that you are doing your part, for animals, the planet, and yourself.

20 – Don’t be afraid of traveling!

Sometimes, it can be scary to travel as a vegan. It is not easy to find vegan options in your own town. Therefore, it is understandable that you may be nervous about going to a place where the term “vegan” is not commonly used.

The most important thing is to not be afraid to start your journey!

After you have visited a few destinations, you will realize that it is not difficult or any different from normal travel. You just need to do some research before you set off, and be careful with non-vegan temptations.

It will also be clear that you don’t need to eat meat or animal products no matter where your family lives. You will likely meet more vegans than you have ever before and may even find veganism becoming more common. You will see more of the world that you are changing and you’ll remember why you became vegan. You won’t regret making the leap to travel with veganism.
