My name is Jas, and today I wanna give you health tips for all of you international globetrotters Today, more people are enjoying first hand the incredible sights and sounds of
faraway lands. It can be the experience of a lifetime as long as you protect yourself along the way. So let me tell you a few tips that will help you enjoy your adventure
without damaging your health, or your wallet. On those long distance flights, get up and walk around as much as you can. Travelers in hot, humid climates are at serious risk of dehydration, so keep plenty of safe water at hand. Buy
bottled water, avoid asking for ice in your drinks, and
brush your teeth with safe water. The best rule of thumb on travel nutrition: eat cooked food, and food that you can peel. Avoid fresh salads, and consider taking daily probiotic supplements to protect the health of your digestive system. Be very careful in the sun. Bring a lot of sunscreen, in the tropics
especially, it’s very easy to get sunburned quickly. Watch out for mosquitoes. Find out from your doctor if your travel
country has malaria, and take the necessary medicine. Also, bring enough mosquito repellent. Spraying your skin at night will pretty much eliminate getting bitten by those irritating mosquitoes. Sometimes, accident happen, even when we are careful. Treat cuts or wounds immediately with antibacterial agents. Take enough prescription and over-the-counter medication in their
original bottles to cover your trip, along with a letter of explanation from
your doctor. This includes insulin, syringes, and glucose testing supplies.
What is really important for you know, is that most domestic health insurance
doesn’t cover emergency medical care or prescriptions outside the U.S. Your
travel insurance should include emergency medical and evacuation in case of a health emergency. The last thing you need to top of a difficult vacation is a huge bill. You may be a young sports enthusiast
who needs travel insurance to cover extreme sports. You may be a senior citizen traveling to China to teach English. No matter the age or reason for your
overseas trip, you will need travel insurance that suits you. Good Neighbor Insurance will ensure that you are covered by inexpensive travel insurance policies that offer significant benefits. If tragedy strikes, and a U.S. citizen dies
overseas, the government can’t cover the return of
remains, but travel insurance can. So whatever your needs and concerns, give us a call before you travel. The peace of mind is worth it.
