Precautions are always better than cure. Precautions makes you relax; helps you to fully enjoy the trip. You can follow these smart precautions to avoid any hazard. Let’s dive into details to get more clarifications. 

Avoid Making Yourself an Attractive Target While Traveling 

Here are some ideas:

• Avoid wearing costly jewelry

• Keep valuables (such as traveler’s checks and credit cards) on a belt worn beneath your garments and adjacent to your skin.

• If you’re feeling very exposed, wear your money belt somewhere else than around your waist. 

• Carry a ‘dummy’ wallet containing a tiny amount of cash. If you are challenged by a mugger, you can hand over the dummy wallet to prevent additional embarrassment.

Water Security

Even experienced swimmers and boaters might be caught off guard in strange bodies of water around the world.  Unfortunately, accidental drownings and other water-related incidents are among the major causes of mortality among Americans living abroad.  As a result, we urge you to exercise additional caution when engaging in recreational activities in and around water, as well as when using boats for transportation or exploration.  When it comes to water safety, always obey posted signs, wear a life jacket if one is available, and avoid taking needless risks.  While overseas, do not operate a boat or watercraft.

Eat Wisely 

To avoid contracting the bug, only dine at clean places. Consume plenty of fruits and vegetables and limit your intake to cooked meals. Avoid eating street food, especially if you have a weak digestive system. Also, before eating, thoroughly wash your hands.

Get Vaccination

Getting vaccinated is critical, especially if you plan to go to areas where malaria, dengue fever, encephalitis, and other diseases are widespread. 

Apply Sunblock

In many countries, temperatures appear to be particularly high during the noontime, especially during the summer, and you should always carry sunscreen with you to protect your skin. Choose one with a higher SPF rating. Sunscreens not only prevent tanning, but also protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays. Furthermore, air conditioning in autos tends to dry up the skin. So, by applying sunscreen you can keep your skin hydrated. 

Avoid Using Public Restrooms

This is particularly true for women. To protect yourself from infections, avoid using public restrooms.

A Power Bank with Multiple Ports

While on the road, an uncharged phone might be a frustrating issue. You will be unable to contact anyone or track their location. You also won’t be able to play your favorite song on your phone via aux cable (if you don’t have a music system). Also, if you’re traveling with one or two friends, a multi-port power bank will come in handy.

A Pillow for the Neck & a Bedsheet

A soft neck pillow will support your neck and body while also making you feel calmer, even after long hours of driving. If you want to take a brief nap, the cushion and bedsheet will must come in handy. 

Keep A First-Aid Kit with Thermometer on Hand

If you’re driving along an empty highway and your car breaks down, keep a few tools on hand so you can fix it yourself. The basic tools, such as a car jack, puncture repair kit, jumper cables, an LED torch, and fuses, must be included in the emergency pack.  Nobody knows what difficulties they may encounter during their journey. As a result, having a well-stocked first aid kit that includes common medicines and disinfectants, among other basics, is critical. 

Create a first-aid kit with all of the necessary medications, band-aids, crepe bandages, sprain-relief gels, anti-allergens, and so on. Keep scissors, safety pins, and tweezers in your medical kit as well. Aside from that, bug repellants and sting relief products should be available. Last but not least, you should bring a thermometer with you to monitor your temperature if you feel concerned.
