Being sick is no fun. Being sick while traveling is awful.

That’s why we want you to stay healthy on your trip and have some tips to help you do so. Please review this information about medical situations so you can be as prepared as possible.

Diseases and Health Concerns

Make sure you know about the health conditions and diseases that are common in the country or countries you are traveling to so you can protect yourself. The CDC’s travel destinations website  offers a number of different search options for situations to be aware of during international travel.

Worldwide Navigators will not provide immunization recommendations to travelers. Please refer to the CDC website and ask for recommendations from your healthcare provider.

Insurance

Currently, Worldwide Navigators does not offer travel insurance. This may change in the future. However, we highly recommend every international traveler purchase travel insurance.

Trip cancellations, flight delays, severe weather, lost baggage… These are all reasons to invest in travel insurance for your upcoming trip with Worldwide Navigators. Travel insurance may be purchased through many third-party providers to provide the care and coverage if you experience any disruptions while traveling abroad.

Prescription Medications

Carry your prescription medications in their original packaging in your carry-on bag. Bring a copy of the prescription paperwork from your pharmacist as well just in case customs officials have questions.

Emergency Contact

Make sure we have complete emergency contact information for you.
