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

    Filed Under: Blogging

International travel insurance is your professional back-up when you travel to far-flung destinations on your adventure trip of a lifetime. International travel insurance covers you if you need emergency medical treatment or a stay in hospital.

To make sure you don’t need to call on your back-up, take simple health precautions to keep the pleasure, not the pain, in your trip. International travel health insurance can begin tomorrow, or as soon as your adventure starts.

Practice Safe Sun: Don’t underestimate the power of the sun, especially if you are traveling to a tropical place. Sun burn can make your vacation unpleasant and sun stroke can land you in hospital. Always wear a sun screen with an SPF of above 30. Reapply it religiously, even if you don’t normally burn. Keep out of the sun between midday to 3pm and cover up with a wide-brimmed hat and good quality sunglasses.

Beat the Bites: Malaria is prevalent in many adventurous destinations and can be deadly. Take advice as to which anti-malarials are best for your travel. Stop the bites in the first place by covering your arms and legs in the morning and evening. Use repellent when you’re outside and spray your room for protection. Choose a quality mosquito net for protection at night.
