While we always wish you the best of health and happiness, just like at home no one is immune to occasionally getting sick abroad. Make sure you are prepared for that unlikely scenario. If you are not feeling well, you need to contact your insurance company so they can provide you with the recommendation of the best local hospital that you can go to. Some insurance companies will take care of the payment without you needing to pay in advance.
If you don’t have travel insurance, ask your hotel personnel to recommend a good hospital or ask them to call a doctor for you. Just remember medical emergencies in foreign countries can be extremely expensive, which is why we always recommend that you invest in good quality travel insurance, to cover you for those unexpected issues.
That being said, feeling a little under the weather isn’t always a cause for panic. Remember that if you just arrived at a destination far from home, you might be suffering from jet lag. If you’ve got a bit of an upset stomach, stay away from that creepy street food that you’ve been chomping away at. The water might have also made you a little queasy, but if the locals are drinking it and aren’t getting ill, your system just needs a few days to rest, recover and get accustomed to it.
As a final note, the best plan of action is to ensure you don’t get sick. Check to see whether you need any vaccination before visiting the country in mind. Also make sure that you’re drinking sealed, bottled water content to ensure you don’t pick up a water-borne bug. And finally, make sure that you eat foods that you would eat back home. If you’ve never tried frog’s legs, a short holiday definitely isn’t the time and place to get adventurous, if you get what we’re saying here.
