Traveling Abroad? Use these Safety Travel Tips

Planning you get your passport stamped yet again? Wherever you’re heading, these safety tips will surely come in handy—especially if you are travelling during peak tourist seasons. As you leave your home, remember that more people than you can ever imagine are also heading for their well deserved holidays –so do not let terrible drivers, invasive security scanners and long lines at airports unnerve you in any manner. Here are some survival tips during rush holiday travel seasons –without allowing snowman-sized meltdowns in your life.  Research and More Research  If hectic traffic is not your scene, then look up other ways of reaching your destination. It’s no point getting overwhelmed on routes that appear to be shorter, but introduce you to hours of vehicular jams, stressed kids and agonizing moments. Instead, look up your road guiding apps or research beforehand –you may find yourself on an alternate route that takes longer, but travels through scenic pit spots and makes you come closer to attractions that you may have otherwise missed. If you are flying, then check upon all the regulations of your carrier—as regards to excess baggage, flight timings, check-in durations and so forth—this will alleviate any unwarranted surprises later on. Stay connected Keep more information in your bag than you may ever need. Stocking upon the latest and most versatile travel apps, printing road maps in advance, downloading Google Earth and smart ways of finding your flight status, accommodation availability and other amenities is also advisable. For instance Flight Status offers real-time updates on baggage numbers, delays and more. GasBuddy as well as SitOrSquat provides info on the cheapest gas and cleaner bathrooms on roads. (Image by Kenneth Lu) Pack light If you can totally avoid checking in your bags, then you are certainly travelling light. The act ensures no long waits at the jam packed conveyor belts and you need not worry about your dad’s Xmas gift getting lost in an intermittent airport. If you plan to check in your bags, then do remember to keep all the important documents, your regular medicines, a change of clothes and your toiletries in your cabin luggage—just in case you end up losing your stuff. Pack Earplugs If you really want to escape your stressful and hyped surroundings, then turn the volume down—with your earplugs firmly in place. Say “no” to crying babies in the seats next to you and refrain from any small talk with boring co-passengers, by listening to your favorite tracks that transport you into a more relaxed world. And yes, if you are okay with power naps and love to take those interspersed check-outs after every...

Medical Must-Haves that Promise to Make your Trip Safer

Medical Must-Haves that Promise to Make your Trip Safer

A well conceived and formulated list of the right emergency supplies will alleviate quite a lot of travel stress and make your trip less burdensome. Whether you are planning that much needed family vacation or looking forward to a hike in the lap of nature, packing in the items that make you feel better (in case you are injured or sick), is a must. Your vacation can be totally ruined by an unexpected illness, locally contacted disease or accident–so, remember to add a small kit of medications and other first aid requirements for proper handling of such moments.  Travel Smart:  Things that need to go in First The list of ‘must carry’ items can be endless; and make you go astray. Though there are lots of things that come in handy in the times of emergencies, but you need to shorten the list and include only those that may be required at your destination of choice or during the types of activities that you are wishing to pursue during your holiday.  Unless you are planning to explore unknown country sides or trek off into the wilderness, there are very few things that you may require in the vicinity of urbanized locations, globally. However, trips to remote corners of the world require greater preparation and you may want to carry along specific supplies, prescription medications and so forth. Here, the thumb rule is: a relaxed leisure vacation in a retreat requires a lot less medical supplies than a camping trip in the forests beyond. Emergency Supplies that are essential for all Trips  No matter where you intend to go, a basic medical kit with all regular prescriptions is always advisable. The list of items in this kit may vary from one tourist to another, but the ones that should make it to the bags of all hikers, winter sports enthusiasts, laid-back travelers, art aficionados and so on are:  Prescription Medicines Carry an ample supply of all your prescription medications. Have refills in separate places, so that there is no stress in the instance of lost baggage or your return getting delayed/ postponed. Always consult your doctor for medicines that may come in handy at your holiday destination and plan accordingly. For example, travelers proceeding towards Africa should carry drugs for treating any unwarranted incidences of malaria. (Image by New Hampshire Public Radio) Over-the-counter Drugs Some commonly used over-the-counter (OTC) medications like antihistamines, cough syrup, pain relievers, decongestants and throat lozenges should also make it to your travel kit—along with a digital thermometer, medicines for motion sickness and anti-bacterial creams for burns, cuts and bruises. Creams/Ointments You may like to buy an...
