Article ContentAuthor NameArticle Title
If you are planning hotel accommodation, then personal hygiene tips for hotels and travel and hotel security for your overall health and safety requirements should be considered, particularly if you suffer allergies, or are easily prone to sickness. If traveling to another country, perhaps contact (email) your hotel to gather information, about their cleaning policy (e.g. cleaning schedule, if disinfectants are used, what specific fixtures are cleaned in your room, etc). Also ask about if there is a doctor on call, availability of prescriptions you require, locations of nearest and specific doctors premises, and chemists (pharmacists) if you intend to travel beyond your hotel.
Tips to Prepare Health Insurance
Arrange suitable health insurance before you travel and book your hotel accommodation. Check your travel policy, and ask specifics. Ask if you need vaccinations, certain prescriptions, including certain habits (Your doctor may ask you to refrain/reduce such habits) Perhaps inquire about fees – e.g. currency fees if you purchase medicines overseas, specific daily amounts, the medicine brand (or equivalent) that should be used, and if any claims need to be effected immediately online. Perhaps visit online travel/tourist/hotel forums and review sites to try to get hygiene and health tips for you to prepare.
Preparing Health Items and Doctor Inquiries Tips
Pack suitable and sufficient medicines, tissue wipes, disposable plastic bags, disinfectants, air fresheners, anti-bacterial soap, scrubbing brush, and perhaps your own cutlery. Also ask your insurance health/travel company and your doctor for health tips (including for certain locations or country specific), as they may suggest or stipulate important personal health items to carry. Or they may refer you to additional resources for preparing for health ideas and tips. Perhaps become familiar and research your prescriptions (which may have other brand names overseas) online. This is important if you suffer certain health issues including allergies.
Online internet Tip: Upload Health Documentation for Access
A useful health preparation tip, similar to travel and hotel security is to save your medical and other relevant information online, including contacts, for ease of accessibility on a internet enabled computer. Therefore save or back up any health insurance policies, contact numbers (including family and contacts for your destination), your doctor records and contact numbers, to your web based email account (e.g. Gmail), internet free host, and to your mobile phone. For example, another doctor overseas that treats you may want to contact your doctor immediately, or view your health files. Having such information online would likely enable instant and easy access. Or perhaps consider carrying a health bracelet/pager with your health details.
Overall Health Status Tip: Active Preparation and Implementation
Hence by preparing and implementing contact with important avenues, i.e. the hotel, your doctor, travel insurance agency, and online hotel accommodation forums/review sites, you are more likely to be in a better position for important hygiene and health tips. Such health tips can be better implemented, if you can include or adapt other ideas, including a wider range of contact avenues (e.g. family, friends, travel and tourist agencies, Health related reading materials, specific health agencies, etc). Adopting a proactive and diverse preparation health tips plan, is likely to increase awareness and confidence in your overall health status before you accommodate yourself at your hotel’s destination.
