Even the most prepared vacationer can experience travel emergencies. So, it pays to be prepared. Here’s how to prep for common travel emergencies and keep your vacation on track.
Theft and loss are among the more common travel emergencies. So, make copies of all travel documents and bring them with you—especially your passport. If your passport is lost or stolen, you will need a copy. Also, bring copies of your travel insurance documents and credit cards. But don’t keep them in the same location as the originals! Be ready for anything and send yourself an emailed copy of your documents just in case you lose both your passport and the copy.
Get travel insurance—and bring the important information with you. We know. Travel insurance isn’t a very exciting thing to think about but it helps so much in travel emergencies. Policies vary by plan and vendor but can cover emergency medical care, medical evacuation, lost or delayed luggage, canceled flights, travel provider issues such as your airline or tour company going out of business, terrorist event, natural disasters and more. When choosing a plan, make sure to select one that’s appropriate for your budget and situation.
When you’re packing, don’t forget to add key emergency items to your list. Create a travel kit with basic first aid and all your medications as well as any emergency medications. Include bandages and antibiotic ointment as well as medication for skin rashes, allergies, stomach bugs and headaches. If you have severe allergies, make sure you have your EpiPenpen on hand. Don’t forget to include calorie-rich food sources like energy bars in case you don’t have access to food.
Whenever you’re traveling, familiarize yourself with basic information about your destination. Start with the US Department of State’s travel information. Learn the national emergency numbers at your destination. In the US, we all know to call 911 for emergency assistance. However, 911 isn’t the universal number. Instead, the number varies by country. In an emergency, you may not have time to Google the local number. So, find out where to call in advance. The time you save can literally save your life if you are injured or in danger.
In addition to the emergency numbers, you will also want easy access to other key numbers you might need. These could include bank numbers, travel insurance numbers, your credit card companies, your medical providers, and the local US Embassy. Finally, if you don’t know the local language, you should at least learn some basic terms such as hello, goodbye, and help me.
Whether you’re traveling someplace new or to your yearly timeshare, we hope these tips help you handle whatever comes your way.
