  • How To Stay Healthy On Your Adventure Trip: Part One

    Filed Under: Blogging

You’ve planned a dream trip to an off-the-beaten track destination. You’re going for more than the average package tour but you’ve taken the essential step and chosen international travel insurance. Don’t forget to consider your health in an unfamiliar destination, one where illness and accident – small and more serious – go hand-in-hand with culture and cocktails.

International travel insurance protects you when travelling to adventurous destinations by covering your medical costs, health care needs and any unfortunate stay in hospital. You can also protect yourself from some common health ailments abroad. Take simple steps to avoid a holiday to remember for all the wrong reasons.

Safe Eating - Travelling is amazing for tasting new foods. But make sure the meat is cooked through and hot. Take care with shellfish and don’t eat ice cream that may have melted and re-frozen. Peel fresh fruit and vegetables and avoid salads unless you can be sure they haven’t been washed in unclean water.

Don’t Drink Dangerously - Avoid tap water, even for brushing your teeth, and don’t take ice in your drink. Remember alcohol can hit you harder when you’re dehydrated. Enjoy in moderation and don’t take risks you wouldn’t normally take when you’re at home.
