Tips On Ensuring The Safety of Senior Citizens While Traveling

 

Before You Go
There are a number of steps that you can take before you embark on your travels that will help ensure that you are prepared and can relax when you reach your destination.

While going away will be an adventure travel always brings with it an element of uncertainty. Many people worry about what will happen if they are taken ill when on holiday. It is always a good idea to check whether any inoculations are required before you travel and to talk to your GP if you are concerned about any health risks.


If you are on regular medication then it is essential to make sure that you have enough to last for your time away well in advance so that there are no last-minute panics. It is also important to keep your medication somewhere accessible while you are travelling.


Make sure that you have adequate travel insurance in place before you travel and that you have declared any medical condition to your insurer so that you do not have to worry about hospital costs if you fall ill or have an accident. If you are travelling in Europe then you should also apply for a European Health Card from the NHS.


Whether it's beach holidays, safari holidays, city breaks or
adventure travel that appeal, it pays to research your destination before you set off. That way you will know what to expect when you arrive and can prepare for any relevant health and safety issues.

When You Arrive

When you reach your hotel it is a good idea to make your personal possessions secure. If your hotel has a safe then use this to store your money and travel documents. Once you have unpacked, lock your suitcase so that in the unlikely event that your room is broken into, thieves will not be able to use it to transport your belongings.

If you are venturing out on your own after you arrive it can be a good idea to speak to hotel staff first and ask where you should head and whether there are any areas that you should avoid. If you need to use a taxi ask the hotel to arrange one and make sure that you agree the cost in advance.


Moving Around

If you are planning on driving a car while abroad, make sure that you are aware of local driving laws and whether there are any restrictions on the age at which you can hold a licence. Get a map of the area and identify where key landmarks are. Don't leave maps and brochures on view in the car, however, as these will identify you as a tourist.

Try to get into the habit of only carrying as much money as you need for the day. Be careful when taking out your purse or wallet, particularly in busy locations such as markets.


When on safari holidays it can be a good idea to keep your camera or video camera in an old battered bag rather than a standard equipment bag as this will make it less attractive to thieves.


With a little bit of thought and planning you will be able to make your travels as safe as possible. And, once the organisation is out of the way you will be free to enjoy your journey and relax.

How to Prepare for a Safe Travel?

   Travel safety is not simple problem which can be solved itself. If you want to be in safety during your trip you must prepare in advance for this. Proper preparation for a safe travel consists of two stages:

1. Learning current and forecast state of travel destination country (settlement, region, place);

2. Direct preparation including purchase of goods and services as well as reading relevant information and training relevant actions on the base of results of the first stage.

   The first stage involves careful learning natural and social features of recreation places. You need to read special web-sites, forums, social media and other sources of information about recreation locations. Relevant information can be found in the news, medium- and long-term weather forecasts, comments of travelers on forums and social networks, latest and forecast information on informational and reference sites. You should pay special attention to the following features of travel destination locations:

- extreme weather;

- presence of current or recent natural and man-made disasters;

- presence of social conflicts and political instability;

- high crime rate;

- presence of ecological and epidemiological problems;

- presence of dangerous animals;

- presence of problems of bad local food and water.

   If you have found any information about these dangers you should carefully read it and create your own list of travel dangers which may affect you during your travel. Thereafter you can proceed to the second stage of your preparation.

   Content of the second stage of preparation depends on your list of potential hazards which was created on the first stage. Each type of danger requires special set of precautionary measures, goods and services. Therefore let us consider it separately for each type of danger.

   The extreme weather is one of the simplest hazards. However you should not neglect it. If you are going to come in warm travel destination you must to take light clothes (footwear) and good hat. Do not forget about water reserve. If you are going to come in cold travel destination you should take warm clothes, footwear and cap. If heavy rains are expected then take waterproof clothes.

It is important to have some initial products (medicines) to protect against frostbite, freezing, sunstroke. It is also important to know first aid measures to apply them in these cases.

   Natural disasters are one of the most violent dangers because it is very difficult to deal with natural elements. Nevertheless they are predictable. Therefore tracking and avoidance of them are the best tactics to protect against these hazards. But  it is not always possible to avoid them so you need to know the rules of survival during various disasters. Learn these rules for the most likely disasters in places to travel and do not forget to take the first aid kit. Think about the need to have a reserve of food and water.

   Man-made disasters are not predictable that make them very dangerous and poorly managed. It is especially topically when you have a rest in (near) industrial locations. You can be prepared for such hazards if you have the individual protection means and set of medicines. Track the news about long-standing and current man-made disasters and technical accidents. Listen to the advice of the local authorities.

   Social conflicts and political instability may lead to street fighting and armed conflicts that are very dangerous. The most efficient way to protect yourself against ones is avoidance of such events. Track latest news about places to travel. If you see that unrest, armed conflicts or political tensions occur there then it would be better to choose other places to travel. But sometimes these situations may occur suddenly so you should learn rules of survival for these cases before your travel. Take a first aid medicines and keep in touch with your national embassy or other diplomatic representatives.

   High crime rate can exist in your travel places. Do not walk alone at night. Learn how to behave if you are in a dangerous situation. Listen to the advice of local authorities regarding to criminally dangerous locations. Avoid dangerous places and suspicious people. Trust your intuition. Be vigilant in crowded areas, tourist spots and public transport. Learn phone numbers of local police and emergency services.

  Ecological as well as epidemiological problems can cause significant damage to your health so you should carefully learn your recreation locations for the presence of such hazards. Take a  first aid kit and learn first aid measures to apply them in cases of intoxication and deterioration of health. Listen to the advices of the local authorities.

  Dangerous animals may inhabit in places of your trip: snakes, mosquitoes, ticks, sharks, etc. If you know that these animals will be there you should be ready to meet with them. Learn about their habits and manners of attack. Learn ways to protect against them. Explore how to provide first aid in cases of the bites of dangerous animals. Listen to the advice of local authorities regarding to protection against dangerous animals.

   Problems of bad local food and water may lead to significant discomfort and even to poor health. Learn your recreation locations for the presence of such problems. Make reserve of water and food (at least as much as possible to transport or to move across the border). Take a  first aid kit and learn first aid measures to apply them in case of poisoning. Listen to the warnings and advices of people who were in those recreation locations.

   Just want to note that here we consider only the predicted and expected dangers. Unpredictable dangers (local technological accidents, transport problems, criminal assaults etc) are impossible to predict so there is no point to prepare specially for them beforehand in context of the features of the host country. But you should be ready for such dangers always and everywhere.

   Do not forget about travel insurance provided by insurance companies but remember that the cheapest travel insurance is your good preparedness for travel.

   It would be very useful to learn local habits, customs and traditions of travel destination country in order to avoid abusive (for local population) behavior. It may be done using various travel, guide and reference sites where various countries and regions describe.

   Take smart travel safety devices (door alarm, door lock etc) that might be helpful for you in foreign countries.

   Do not break your monitoring when you will come to recreation location (track situation in the same manner as before travel).

   Site Safe Recreation contains all necessary information and services to be prepared for your travel in advance. On the pages “Map” and “Hottest” you can learn places to travel for the presence of current dangers and thereafter on the page “Counteraction” you can find tips, goods and services to protect yourself during your travel.

   Insure yourself and enjoy your travel!


Safe Travel Tips for your Family

A family holiday can be one of the best experiences of your life - but if something goes wrong it can also end up being one of the worst. With that in mind here are a few tips for making sure you have a fun, enjoyable family vacation while reducing your chances of it turning into the holiday from hell.

Do your research

Regardless of your destination, do some reading up about it before you book your accommodation or plan your itinerary. Unless you’ve booked with a trusted tour operator, it’s up to you to choose where you’re staying, so make sure you don’t choose a spot on the wrong side of the tracks or a location that you have to journey through bad areas to reach. Try and find out about the local culture and crime rates in the area, so you’ve got a good idea of how alert you’ll have to be throughout your stay.

Listen to the Locals

You’ll find that locals are always the best source of information about any area, whether they’re tour guides or simply friendly residents (although if it’s not common to their culture, be wary of people who seem just a little too friendly). On family vacations it can be easy for the family leader to develop an ‘I know best’ attitude, but if a guide or local tells you to steer clear of a particular area, listen to them – because actually they know best.

Look after your documents

First of all you need to make sure that you’ve got copies of all your essential documents – passports, insurance forms, medical records, credit cards etc – and then ensure that you store both the originals and their copies separately and securely. Most hotels these days have safes, so put the original set of documents in there and hide the copies in your room. It’s also worth scanning vital documents and sending copies of them to an email address, so that if the worst does happen and both sets of documents do disappear you’ve still got access to them.

Dress Appropriately   

Obviously you should keep in mind that you should dress according to the requirements of the local culture – for example in Muslim countries women should dress conservatively – but also, more generally, you shouldn’t wear expensive clothes, watches and jewellery unless you absolutely have to. Tourist destinations often attract a higher percentage of pickpockets and robbers, and nothing marks you out as a potential target more than a shiny watch or expensive shoes. If you’re visiting poorer countries this is particularly important, as even a pair of smart trainers can be worth a week’s salary or more to the locals.

Use Common Sense

Just because you’re on holiday, don’t be tempted to take unnecessary risks when it comes to safety. It’s all too easy to adopt an ‘you only live once’ attitude when you’re enjoying your holiday, particularly when you’re on adventure trips, and while this is a great mindset to have, don’t let it fool you into doing things that you’d usually think twice about. A good rule of thumb to follow is that if you wouldn’t do it at home, don’t do it on holiday, and if you find yourself getting into a situation where something doesn’t feel right, just walk away. 

If you follow these simple rules, and stick together as much as possible when out in public, then you’ll greatly improve the chances of your family vacation being full of only happy memories.

If you want to find out more about some great destination for family holidays it would also be well worth your time paying a visit to the website of a company called iExplore http://www.iexplore.com/experiences/summer-family-vacations and browsing through some of the fantastic family deals and packages they have available.

Travel Safety Importance

   Safety is one of the most important aspects of our life. Comfort, health and richness have sence for people only if these people feel themselves in safety. Even in modern rich and comfortable countries, regions and settlements safety remains the urgent problem because modern environment contains big number of natural, social and technological dangers for human life and health.

 

   Natural dangers are represented by various natural disasters such as earthquake, tsunami, volcano eruption, hurricane, flood etc. Its impact on society is very destructive as before (some scientists say that its affect on modern society even stronger than earlier because of high concentration of people, building and productions in the modern world). Some of these natural dangers occur in specific locations, some of them occur all over the world. Social dangers include terrorist and other criminal attacks, armed conflicts, street fights, various accidents etc. These phenomena occur everywhere in the world however certain locations exist where probability of social dangers occurrence is larger than elsewhere. Technological dangers are represented by transport wrecks, technological accidents, industrial contamination of environment etc. Technological dangers would inevitably occur throughout the civilized world. In addition various combinations of natural, social and technological dangers occur when natural dangers are intensified by social or technological factors (for example, some diseases and epidemics). All these dangers are an actual threat for people and precautionary measures should be applied to protect people against these dangers.

   It is especially topically in unfamiliar conditions of recreation locations where people come to have a rest. In strange travel destinations any of above mentioned dangers (and its combinations) may suddenly appears and leads to big problem. Moreover governments, travel companies, hotels and local communities do not share full information about recreation centers dangers and problems because they do not want to frighten potential tourists and other visitors. Hence many travellers feel uncomfortable and suffer from unexpected problems. If these visitors could know more information about recreation centers problems then they could prepare for future travels much better (e.g. to take appropriate clothes and medicine, to learn safety tips, to do some organizational and legal actions before travel etc).  Therefore there is a need for resource where travelers could learn actual and potential dangers they may meet in particular location as well as where they could learn counteractions against these dangers and prepare for any possible problems during their future travel. Site Safe Recreation has been created to meet this need. Here traveler can learn recreation locations dangers, find useful travel tips, warnings, goods and services to protect against possible emergencies and compile travel guide for yourself. This site is the good travel adviser for people who like the safety and comfort. This site provides you with cheapest travel insurance. Remember that safe travel is not just fashionable concept, safe travel is the modern rule of modern travelers!

The Most Likely Dangers: Countries Profiles

   There are many dangers for human health and life in the world. Spatial distribution of these dangers forms a dense and highly dynamic mosaic. It is very dificult to take into account and forecast all possible dangers for all countries (regions). Many of them occur so spontaneously that there was no information (alert, warning) for them in advance. So traveller may not be prepared for such hazards. In addition dangers may occur when traveller is on the way to the country destination or when traveller is already there.

   Hence traveller should know the most likely dangers of travel places in order to be prepared for them even if traveller has not necessary information about future dangers in advance. It can increase the chances to survive and be healthy in cases of most likely emergencies.

   Every country has the list of the most likely dangers for human health and life. It would be helpful to know this list for your travel destination country(ies) before travel regardless of whether the information is in the news or not.
