Travel health and safety tips

 

  • Make sure you do not leave home without travel insurance
  • Check any Travel Health Notices outlining potential health risks as well as any measures that can be taken to reduce these risks.
  • Carry a basic travel health kit no matter where you travel
  • Check with your health care provider for vaccination recommendations before you travel abroad
  • Make sure your medication won't cause you any problems while you are travelling or when you return home
  • Extreme heat and sunlight can be dangerous to your health. Make sure to stay hydrated, dress for the weather, limit your time in the sun, use sunscreen, wear sunglasses and avoid sun exposure.
  • Using cellphones, mobile devices and computers while travelling can be expensive. Check with your carrier to see what roaming charges may apply, even within Canada.
  • If you are travelling with your pet, check the specific requirements for transporting animals across the border if driving or with the airline to find out if you need to do anything before arriving at the airport. Health certificates or other documentation may be required when taking your pet on an airplane or to another country, including the United States.
