Travel Tips

Planning Ahead:
Although you can't anticipate every contingency, there are steps you can take to ensure a healthy vacation. Your travel agent can help you determine the climate at your destination and what you'll need to bring along on your trip. You've packed shorts and t-shirts appropriate for warm weather at the beach, desert, or campsite, but did you remember sunscreen, insect repellent, and bottled water? Planning ahead for a healthy trip involves taking along first-aid supplies that might be needed at your destination or along the way. It also means remembering to pack any prescription or over-the-counter medications you or your family members take on a regular basis. Also be sure to ask your travel agent about required vaccinations and any health department advisories that may exist for the countries you are visiting. For travelers with special needs, your travel agent can help you book the vacation that's right for you and provide such personalized services as having a wheelchair waiting at your destination.

See your doctor:
Before leaving for vacation, you should visit your family physician to discuss any troubling symptoms that might become a problem during your journey. Many health concerns can be addressed prior to your trip and working can often alleviate worries about illness or discomfort with your doctor and your travel agent. This brochure offers helpful hints on travel health and how to cope with some health concerns that may be particularly troublesome during any trip away from home, such as motion sickness, overactive bladder, digestive problems, allergies, joint and muscle aches or arthritis.

Common Travel Health Problems

Allergies: People who suffer from allergies to molds, mites, dust, pollen, animal fur, insects, foods, and other substances should take the same precautions on vacation as they do at home. Bring any prescription or over-the-counter anti-allergy medications used on a regular basis. It's also a good idea to bring an antihistamine in case of accidental exposure to a substance that triggers an allergic reaction. It also may be helpful to pack your own pillowcase for use in hotels, especially if you have sensitive skin. Some rhotels even offer non-allergic pillows and non-smoking morns. Ask your travel agent for availability.

Motion Sickness: People who experience motion sickness are familiar with the dizziness, nausea, queasiness, and upset stomach that may accompany car, boat and plane travel. Motion sickness usually results when the brain gets conflicting information about movement. When traveling by car, try to sit in the front seat and avoid reading. When traveling by boat, sit as close to the middle of the vessel as possible and look straight ahead at the horizon, a fixed point that will not move. Today's high-tech cruise ships are built for comfort, with stabilizers for smooth sailing, and most passengers experience little or no motion sickness. When flying, try to sit near the wing of the plane, or the side where you are accustomed to driving. Ear plugs also may help. There are some over-the-counter and prescription medications available to help prevent motion sickness. Remember to use caution when taking them, as many cause drowsiness which can impair your ability to drive or operate a boat or plane.

Digestive Problems: People with digestive disorders such as diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome may also require frequent bathroom visits during long trips. Over-the-counter antidiarrheal medications are helpful, and there are prescription medications available for people who may experience more severe symptorns. Avoiding stress, caffeine, and certain types ofhigh-fat foods can help keep these conditions under control. Consult your travel agent on the availability of special airline meals to suit your dietary needs.

Joint, Muscle Aches, and Arthritis: The inflammation of the joints that occurs with arthritis may be especially troubling during long trips that restrict movement. Taking frequent breaks to walk around and relieve stiff joints and muscles can make car, plane and cruise trips more enjoyable. Remember to pack aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, or any prescription medications you normally use for arthritis. Your travel agent can arrange special assistance at the airport and recommend hotels, tours and cruises that cater to persons with limited mobility.

Don't Forget To Bring:

  • More than enough prescription medication in case of loss, theft breakage, or spillage
  • A note from doctor with a medical diagnosis for a chronic health conditions as well as medications and dosages prescribed
  • Multivitamins
  • Medical ID bracelets or cards listing your chronic health conditions for emergency personnel
  • Extra eyeglasses, lens prescriptions, contact lens solutions
  • Extra hearing-aid batteries
  • Pillowcase from home for allergy sufferers
  • Sunscreen (at least SPF 15)
  • Bottled water
  • Insect repellent with diethyltoluamide (DEET)
  • Earplugs
