No matter where you are traveling, you need to be safe. Things can happen—injuries, theft, losses and more.
You need to learn how to protect yourself when on the road and especially when you’re in another country. Here are 8 tips from travel professionals to help you stay safe and secure while on your vacation:
Protect your medicines
“Consider taking a prescription for your medications in case they are lost,” said Margie Lenau of Wonderland Family Vacations.
“Never pack your medication in check baggage, always put it in your carry on. Your flight could be delayed or your baggage lost. Also, carry your medical history with you. You may want to wear [a] Medical ID bracelet or necklace with your personal health information. This provides emergency personnel with your medical information.”
Buy travel insurance
“It is a good idea to purchase travel insurance,” said Lenau. “Even though you will be careful, you can still catch a bug or get injured. In the event that this happens, the financial burden is covered. This will give you peace of mind before and during your vacation.”
