During this period, something will go wrong for some travelers, but you can take many precautions to prevent these disasters—especially when it comes to health.

  • Planning Ahead

The first step to a successful vacation is planning ahead and learning about the area you will be visiting. Research the area you will visit and plan accordingly.

  • Smart Preparation and Packing

Many aspects of packing are determined by the exact location and type of vacation planned. For example, packing for a beach vacation in Croatia will differ from packing for a summer vacation in the High Tatras. Keep in mind the specific surroundings and terrain when deciding on clothing. Remember to pack the appropriate footwear and necessary gear, which will differ if the trip is centered on hiking and camping versus relaxing on the beach.

  • Medication for your travels.

The first step can be stopping by the pharmacy to be sure you have any drugs you might need. Carry medications in personal bags rather than in your luggage in case it is lost or stolen. If you take medications that require refrigeration, pack coolers to store medications while traveling, and reserve a room with a refrigerator at your final destination to keep the medications cold.

Remember to bring along insurance identification cards.
