TIPS: Before you leave on your trip:

Things to do before you travel.

 Adapted from 12 TRAVEL RESOLUTIONS 

by Andrea Bennett

 Duplicate Important Records: store passport info, Bank accounts, credit card numbers and other important travel information at an encrypted on-line storage site. Or, leave copy with trusted family member or friend back home.

 Buy Travel Medical Insurance – after you figure out how much you already have.. Since most health-care plans don’t cover emergency medical evacuation or even basic medical coverage overseas, it’s a good idea to purchase a travel health policy. Usually purchased on a per-trip basis, also available on annual basis.  Also, if you are already covered for medical concerns, then consider coverage for emergency evacuation. Ex. medjetassist will fly you to any hospital in the world.

 Check your insurance providers for Rental-Car coverage policies.. Do you really need to purchase $40 per day in insurance every time you rent a car? Get to the bottom of this by reviewing your policies at home.

Also check your health, auto, and homeowner’s policies w/ regard to medical and belongings.. Are you covered in the US only or abroad too? Call ahead to the rental agency in the countries you are visiting to find out what the minimum ins. requirements are. Bring proof of coverage with you.

 Study your Frequent-Flier mileage programs a – and your statements. [and how you use your credit cards]

 Keep medical records close at hand. There are some websites where you can make a profile (encrypted), or you can put info on a ‘flash-drive’/USB/chip device, w/ info including EKGs, allergies, contact info, etc.  And of course, you can/should keep info on your person/wallet.

 Designate someone to deal with emergencies at home. Not just break-ins, but floods, electrical problems, etc. [can also water the plants]

 Secure your luggage with an  ‘approved’ lock. www.travelsentry.org offers a combination lock that can be opened only by you and a TSA  screener– Transportation Security Administration.

 Check your passport for blank pages. As of date of this article, the State Department will add 24 extra pages at no charge via a download (www.travel.state.gov) 877 487 2778
