Remember to always check with your doctor prior to traveling and pack any required prescriptions in your carry-on luggage.
Travel Tip: It’s not wise to pack prescription medication in your checked luggage. Make a copy of the prescription displaying the name and dose in case of an emergency.
Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP)
The U.S. State Department provides a free travel registration service to U.S. citizens who are traveling abroad. Registration allows a traveler to record information about his or her upcoming trip abroad. The Department of State can use this information to assist in case of an emergency. Americans residing abroad can also get routine information from the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate. For more information, see the U.S. Department of State’s Travel Registration.
Travel Tip: SoloMate Travel encourages all guests to register with the U.S. State Department.
Should I purchase Travel Insurance?
Yes. You’re spending thousands of dollars for your vacation and a few extra dollars will protect you from emergencies. Most policies offer a waiver of all pre-existing medical conditions, and cover most unexpected occurrences.
Travel Tip: There are many types of travel insurance, but we recommend Access America as being one of the most comprehensive. And, don’t forget to bring a copy of the policy.
