Share on FacebookShare on Google+Share on LinkedIn

We love to travel to exotic locations not only to tick off the tourist’s itinerary, but at times just to get away from unfavorable weather at home, be it the scorching heat of the Indian summers, or the chilling cold of winters! This change of climate can work like balm for one’s mind and body, but at times it can also play havoc on one’s health. In fact during any international travel, be it for business or pleasure, you could be prone to common ailments like ear or nose infections or stomach problems such as indigestion and the like.

If you happen to suffer from any of these, what would you do? Being prepared is the best way to ensure that you your holiday plans don’t go for a toss!

First aid kit

It is a good idea to pack a simple first aid kid into your luggage, containing regular over-the-counter medicines that you take at home whenever needed. If you are under medical treatment, do carry your prescribed medicines as well as the doctor’s prescription.

Also, before travelling abroad, do visit the country’s website, talk to your travel agent as well as your family physician, to be aware of and take both the mandatory and the precautionary vaccinations recommended for your destination. You can also read about the experiences of other travelers on the internet and get valuable inputs.

Remember that in many countries, even a doctor’s consultation fee can leave your wallet lighter by a few hundred dollars and play spoilsport with your finances. So, buying travel insurance would be a good way to cover such contingencies during your overseas trip.

We hope you put this tip to use, so you stand a better chance at not letting a minor ailment dampen your travel plans…
