Travel insurance financially protects you, your family, and your possessions from travel risks such as stolen luggage, flight cancellations, and medical costs.

Install padlocks on the zippers of your bags to keep your valuables safe. For extra security, try investing in an anti-theft bag.
It’s always good to be prepared. Having the right first-aid supplies on hand allows you to treat injuries right away and reduce the risk of complications. Think of it as your customized survival kit when traveling to a foreign place.
Power bank, electronic cables, and adaptors
Electronic devices are useless if their batteries are dead. A portable power bank is a lifesaver while you are on the go. Furthermore, bear in mind that voltage and outlets vary per country, thus a universal adaptor is an essential item. Don’t forget to bring all the necessary cables needed to recharge various types of gadgets.
Make sure to have a well-stocked toiletry bag with all the essentials you need. Don’t forget to include sunblock, hand sanitizer, and insect repellant, too.
These stockings come in handy especially during long flights as they help increase circulation and reduce the risk of swelling and clotting veins. They gradually squeeze your legs, helping your veins and leg muscles move blood more efficiently.
Refillable water bottle
Water can help relieve jet lag. Stay hydrated throughout your trip as water helps boost energy and battle fatigue. Traveling with a reusable water bottle also helps save money and reduces waste.
If you’re traveling abroad, make sure you have hard copies and electronic copies of all your important files. These files should include your passport, visas, birth certificates, and identification cards. If you’re traveling as a family, make sure you have everyone’s complete documents. It is also advisable to leave a printed copy at home with a trusted friend or relative for emergency purposes. (Photo from dfa.gov.ph)
