Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Here are my tips to ensure you enjoy a safe and worry-free vacation.

Follow these best practices when traveling:

• Pack 14 days of extra medication — In the event of unexpected travel delays and emergencies, remember to bring additional prescription medication for at least two weeks beyond the length of your vacation. Also, you should bring a list of the names, strengths, and dosages of all medications in case refills are required.

• Provide Emergency Contact — Make sure your passport lists and emergency contact. The emergency contact should not be traveling with you and this emergency contact should be another personal connection.

• Mobile phone instructions — Be sure to enable an international travel plan inclusive of voice and data. Cell phones will not work the same in all countries without an international plan and Wi-Fi is not as available in many countries. An international plan will enable you to stay connected at a reasonable rate and ensure you can be contacted.

• Purchase travel protection — It’s always a good idea to purchase some form of vacation protection to protect from any losses stemming from unforeseeable circumstances before & during your vacation.

• Practice healthy travel habits — According to the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the simplest and most effective way to prevent illness, is to take extra care to practice basic health habits, including:

– Washing your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds
– Taking advantage of hand sanitizer wherever it’s available
– Covering your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing using a tissue or your bent elbow. And always dispose of the used tissue and wash your hands afterward
– Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with your hands
– Avoiding close contact with sick people
