  • When planning your trip, check on the Covid restrictions in place in all the countries you hope to visit.  
  • Check on Covid restrictions aboard airlines before purchasing tickets.  
  • If you’ve had the Covid vaccine, take your documentation with you. You never know when you might need it. 
  • If you take routine prescriptions, take enough for an extra week, in case your return is delayed.  
  • To avoid legal issues, be sure that medications are stored in the original prescription bottle.  
  • Be sure you’re covered by travel insurance, especially if you plan on participating in adventure sports.
