Future you will thank you.
You know the old saying... hope for the best, plan for the worst? That’s our motto when it comes to travel first-aid kits. So while they may not be on the level of, say, underwear when it comes to packing priorities, they’re still worth talking about—especially if you’re heading to a foreign country or expect to be partaking in physical activities (or both).
We rounded up a list of the most common items everyone should include, as well as a few add-ons for tropical and adventure trips. But remember—it’s by no means comprehensive, and everyone is different. Feel free to personalize to your heart’s content and #GoJourny in style… and safety.
First Aid Essentials
Plus a list (translated, if necessary) of the brand and generic names and dosage amounts. To avoid speculation in the case of a custom inspection, it’s best to avoid mixing various pills in a single bottle. Instead, keep them in their original containers.
To relieve headaches, fevers and simple sprains or strains
In the case of an allergic reaction
For heartburn and stomach/digestion-related troubles
Recommended 60% alcohol or more
To prevent infection in cuts, scrapes and burns
If you have trouble sleeping
To relieve sunburns
with UVA/UVB protection
Recommended 30-50% DEET
To relieve motion sickness if you’ll be on a boat
To remove bee stingers, ticks and minor splinters
To wrap wrists, ankles or elbow injuries
To dress larger cuts and scrapes
To keep gauze in place
To easily cut tape and gauze. (These must go in a checked bag!)
To fasten splints and bandages
To relieve itching and irritation from bites and poison ivy
Now that you're prepped are ready to go, the only question is... where to?
Feel free to schedule a call with one of our expert trip designers. They'd be happy to give you advice on where to go and how long to spend in each place.
