Items you should consider including in your travel kit:
It is important to include medicines to treat common ailments such as headaches, fever, nausea, diarrhoea and colds. It is also advisable to carry medicines for allergies, insect bites, and to prevent and treat travel-related illnesses.
2. Plasters and bandages
Carrying plasters and bandages is essential for treating cuts, scrapes and wounds. It is also advisable to carry elastic bandages to treat sprains and strains.
3. Insect repellent
If you are travelling to a wilderness area, carrying insect repellent is a must to prevent mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria and dengue fever.
If you are travelling to an area where the sun is strong, it is important to bring sunscreen to avoid sunburn and other problems related to sun exposure.
5. Antiseptics and analgesics
Carrying antiseptics is important for treating minor infections, such as cuts and scrapes. On the other hand, if you suffer from chronic pain or have a previous injury, it is advisable to carry painkillers to treat pain and inflammation.
Tips for putting together the perfect travel kit:
Pack medicines in original containers:
Be sure to carry medicines in their original containers, labelled with their name, expiry date and dosage.
Check air safety regulations:
If you are flying, be sure to check air safety regulations regarding limitations on the medicines you can take with you on the plane.
Verify health requirements:
Depending on your destination, vaccination may be required for certain diseases. Be sure to check health requirements before you travel.
Consult your doctor:
If you have a medical condition or take prescription medication, it is important to consult your doctor before you travel. You can also ask your doctor about additional medications you may need for your trip.
Consider the needs of other travellers:
If you are travelling with friends or family, it is important to consider their needs and make sure you include the medicines they may need in your travel kit.
Useful FAQs for the user:
1. How long before my trip should I organise my travel kit?
Ideally, you should assemble your travel kit at least a couple of weeks before your trip to make sure you have everything you need and to replace any medicines that are close to their expiry date.
2. Should I carry more medicine than I need?
It is advisable to carry enough medication for the duration of your trip, plus some extra medication just in case. However, it is important not to overload your first-aid kit with unnecessary medicines.
3. Should I carry my first aid kit in my hand luggage or in my checked luggage?
It is advisable to carry your first-aid kit in your hand luggage so that you can easily access it during the flight and in case your checked baggage is lost.
The first-aid kit is an essential item for any traveller. Making sure it is well stocked with the right medicines and products can make a big difference in case of any eventuality during the trip.
