Must Stay Healthy When Travelling

Health insurance

There’s no getting away from health insurance – it’s essential if you’re on a round-the-world trip. Make sure the company you’re thinking of signing up with has got a 24-hour helpline in case of emergencies; that the insurance covers you for the whole trip; and that, if you’re taking part in dangerous sports, you’re covered.

Contact details of friends and family

It’s always worth keeping the contact details of a few family members or friends with your passport, so they can be contacted in an emergency.

Contraception

Have you made plans for your usual form of contraception? Make sure you’ll have access to it by speaking with your doctor or local contraception clinic.

Travel guide

Get yourself a reliable travel guide. They give invaluable guidance on what you should see, but also where to avoid.

Drinking the water

if you are suspicious of the provenance of the local bottled water, go for the sparkling water as this will certainly have come straight from the bottling plant.

Eating the food

Make sure food has been freshly and thoroughly cooked, and that it is still hot before you eat. Avoid food that has been exposed to flies. And, be aware of the risks of milk – unpasteurised milk and ice cream from an unknown source, for instance.
