As the pandemic recedes, governments around the world have eased travel restrictions. This allowed tourists to pack their bags and head out for a quick getaway. However, many people suffer from travel anxiety. In clinical terms, this is called hodophobia.
Travel anxiety can include fear of uncertain situations or other challenges associated with travel.
