Survival Guide to Safe and Healthy Travel

There’s nothing better than travelling abroad and sampling the delights of other cultures. However, if you are one of the millions of Americans considering an international vacation, there are a few things you need to be aware of to ensure a safe holiday and a happy return.

First, check whether your destination carries any health risks. The World Health Organization (WHO) website is a great place to search for such information.

The U.S Department of State has country-specific information pages that will alert you to any threat of natural disaster, crime, disease, and etc. in the area which you will be visiting. It’s a great resource if you plan to travel off the beaten path.

You should also learn to pack certain emergency items in case they are required. The Centers for Disease control has a great list of what to take for emergency medical care.

Always make at least two copies of your passport and travel documents. Carry a spare copy with you in separate luggage than your original, and leave another set with a trusted relative at home.
