The Benefits of Travel First Aid Kits

Instead of trying to pack another pair of shoes in your suitcase, add a small first aid box when you travel. Be prepared for emergencies on the go, in the air, or on vacation. Use an old lunch box to easily carry a first aid kit with you anywhere.

As with a home first aid kit, load your first aid kit with basic items such as bandages of various sizes, a thermometer, tweezers and scissors, gauze pads, duct tape, and allergy medication. You can also buy survival first aid kits for cars online from various resources.

But since you're traveling far from your medicine cabinet, you should also include Dramamine, diarrhea medication, antacids, cough suppressants, wipes, adult and pediatric aspirin, copies of prescriptions, antibacterial hand sanitizer, antiseptic ointment, and moles for blisters.

If you spend time outdoors, stock up on your first aid kit with insect repellent, insect bite ointment, sunscreen, and sunscreen lotion.

You can buy supplies for your travel first aid kit from the pharmacy or buy ready-made kits online. Many first aid kits cost less than $10. Don't be afraid to customize your purchased first aid kit with any additional accessories you or your family may need. For example, place a plastic bag filled with a mild soap and water solution along with tissue to wash sticky hands quickly and cheaply.

If you are traveling with your pet, bring some extra items just for your pet, such as  Diarrhea and stomach ache medicine. Talk to your vet about what to bring, especially if you're traveling to another area. Kits are available online for about $15.

By packing these additional consumables, you not only avoid rising hotel drug costs but are also prepared for the first signs of discomfort.
