Guidelines for Safe Traveling

It\'s important to be prepared for any eventuality when you

are heading out of town. You can never tell what kind of

situation you might have to face. So, be prepared to handle

situations like disease, crime, or loss.

If you\'re traveling out of the country, you want to check to

see if there are immunizations that are required to enter.

You can check with the country\'s health department to see

if there are any recommendations. While you have to

complete some, you might also want to look into those that

are just recommended. Talk with your doctor as to where

these are given and get them well before you leave in case

there are side effects that you experience.

You will also want to talk with your health insurance

company to see what their policy is in other areas. You may

need to pay for additional coverage for foreign travel, so

be sure that you are covered no matter what happens.

When it comes to health abroad, it is best to keep away

from tap water when you\'re abroad like most people do. For

the same reason, if you are served with tepid meals, ask

that they heated through thoroughly. And try not to go for

the raw or semi-raw foods, or those not cooked a hundred per

cent for fear they might contain bacteria?including

guacamole and salsa dips, unless of course they are fresh,

made when you order them.

Remember to carry some anti diarrhea drugs in case you get

food poisoning. And if you do get it, drink lots of water

and other fluid to re-hydrate yourself. Don\'t take chances

if your symptoms persist -- do see a doctor, or visit the

local hospital for treatment.

You need to safeguard yourself against crime while

traveling. Try not to carry too much cash with you, and

avoid attracting attention by displaying your wealth. Do not

bring all of your expensive clothing and jewelry to wear.

It\'s better to wear travel clothes and remain low key so

that thieves don\'t get interested in you.

Carrying traveler\'s checks in place of large check amounts

is also better -- because you need to show your

identification and sign them twice to en-cash them. If

someone steals them, you just simply call the issuer of the

checks to replace them.

Additionally, to make sure you don\'t lose out in case

something does get stolen or lost, try your insurer first.

You might be able to get a valuables insurance cover policy

to cover you while you are abroad. It will insure your new

purchases abroad as well as protect your rented car and the

items you carried for your trip.

All it needs is a little planning to make your trip as safe

as possible. If you take the necessary precautions you will

enjoy your exotic trip as though you\'re traveling anywhere

in your home town.
