Keep Your Travels Simple
When possible, you must take a trip that is door-to-door or direct.3 This means avoiding public transportation. For instance, traveling by car is considered the safest since you won’t be mingling with other people and be exposed both to potential triggers and viruses.3
Make sure to know beforehand how you’ll get to your destination, including alternate routes so you won’t need to stop and ask anyone for directions.5
If you need to get on a plane, book a non-stop flight3 instead of one with layovers. This way, it will be less likely that you will be exposed to your allergy triggers.
Choose Your Accommodation Wisely
When choosing your lodging, opt for one with good air circulation. Camping is an excellent choice, but do this with extreme caution to prevent seasonal allergy causes.3
For hotel accommodation, choose one with excellent air conditioning and a proper filtration system. Make sure also that the establishment commits to regular room cleaning and disinfection.3
Make Water Your Drink Of Choice
Invest in eco-friendly water bottles for your drinking water. If you often used to buy bottled water whenever you travel, now is the time to stop this habit. You are not just helping the ecosystem, but you also minimize your exposure to viruses and your triggers.4
If you are going to remote places, bring as much water as you can. If possible, allot at least 10 liters of water per person each day. This may sound exaggerated, but when you are in a far-flung location and you must always wash your hands, those 10 liters of water can rapidly diminish to 2-3 liters of drinking water.5
Pack Your Essentials
When traveling, you must have the following items within reach.
First aid kit
Make it a habit to always travel with a first aid kit.5 This must include:
Antihistamines or your prescription allergy medications1 like Telfast
Tourniquet or anything that can wrap above spider bites
Antiseptic wipes and cream
Water purification tablets
Flu season travel kit
Keep yourself protected from virus exposure by having these items at hand.
Face masks - Wearing a face mask remains a necessity anywhere in the world, and not just until there is an effective vaccine. It is one of the best ways to prevent getting different kinds of viruses, even the common flu.4
Sanitizers or alcohol - Being clean will help save your life. But for instances where you won’t have access to clean water and soap, sanitizers and alcohol are the best alternatives for keeping your hands, skin, and surfaces free of germs and viruses.4
Each time you hit the road, you should also bring car accessories that will help you prevent or remedy sticky situations.5 These include:
Portable air compressor
Snatch recovery gear
High lift jack
Spare fuel and fuel filter
Depending on your travel itinerary, there are other things you can pack. These include a pen, a lighter or a box of matches, head torch and spare batteries, a compass, and extra rolls of toilet paper.5
