Travel related health problems arise from a variety of factors related to your travel environment e.g. holiday destination, types of activities, food and water quality.
Travel related health problems can also arise when a pre-existing medical condition worsens during travel.
Fortunately most travel related problems can be prevented with careful advanced planning. Consult your doctor or travel medicine clinic so that a travel plan can be discussed in detail.
Consider the destination and how the following might affect your underlying health condition.
|Countries/Regions visited||Air quality||Water and food quality||Planned activities are consistent with usual levels|
|Type of accommodation and facilities available||Altitude||Accessing health care|
Any differences in electrical outlets and voltage
|Season of travel: hot/cold/humidity|
|Check for any epidemics||Flexible tickets||Check in early|
Arrive before darkness
