Medical tourism in Israel

When planning our vacation, we always look forward to an amazing and, most importantly, safe journey. For this to be true, you need to make some effort yourself. Spend a little time on safety issues, and then hardly anything can overshadow your long-awaited and well-deserved rest.

Of course, you shouldn't see a potential criminal in every travel companion, hotel employee, or city dweller. You just need to follow the simple rules of safe tourism and then you will have only positive and pleasant memories.

Documents and money

By themselves, your personal documents are unlikely to be of interest to an attacker. They are only valuable to you, so keep them in a separate pocket of your suitcase so that they do not become an accidental object of theft. It is advisable to pack them in a waterproof bag. You can also put a medical insurance policy and tickets there. Also, be sure to make several photocopies of your passport - if you need to provide it at the hotel or, for example, to rent a vehicle. It will not be superfluous to make a scanned copy, which can be stored on the phone or in the "cloud" storage.

The situation is much more complicated with money - they are the main target of criminals. So be sure to take advantage of our safe travel tips:

  • Do not take the entire amount in cash on the trip - be sure to put some of the money on the card;
  • It is best to make several bank cards, one of which will be used for online payments, the second - for withdrawing cash (if necessary) at local ATMs, the third will remain in reserve. Naturally, they should not be kept all together either;
  • The available cash should also be divided into several packs and stored in different places, or even better - with different people (if, of course, you completely trust them); <
  • Don't keep your money in the back pockets of your jeans or in your back bags. It is best to use internal pockets or special bags that are attached to the waist for this;
  • Use exchangers only in the hotel or in bank branches - no street "money changers".

These rules are suitable for solo travel, as well as for travel on packages or as part of tourist groups. If you have your documents and some of your money safe, you can at least safely return home.

Health

No safe journey is possible without taking proper care of your health. Moreover, you should take care of it even before leaving your city or country. We have already mentioned medical insurance above - do not neglect this important point. The cost of the insurance policy is very small (in comparison with the cost of the voucher), while it will allow you to avoid various force majeure situations and unnecessary expenses.

In addition, the rules of tourism require a detailed study of the area where you are going, especially if it is some exotic place. Not all tour operators have sufficient information, so it is better to refresh your own knowledge in your head about common diseases, dangerous insects, problems with water pollution, etc. To avoid health problems, do not forget about the following important points:

  • Vaccinations. In tropical countries, various diseases are widespread, which require mandatory vaccination of visitors. If you wish, you can also get protection against other, less common, but no less dangerous diseases;
  • First aid kit. Collect your own "travel kit" with you, in which include those drugs to which your body is accustomed - pain relievers, antipyretics, antihistamines, antiseptics, coughs, antidiarrheals, etc .;
  • Water. We strongly advise against using local water for drinking and we do not recommend - for washing fruits (at least in the first days after arrival). This is not worth doing, even if you see that the locals calmly drink it directly from the tap. Your body can give an unpleasant reaction (in the form of food poisoning) to unfamiliar bacteria;
  • Food. Do not try all new delicacies right away - your stomach will strongly disagree with you. Not only is there a great chance of getting an intestinal upset, but you can also face allergies. Therefore, “lean” on local cuisine gradually and do not forget to always wash your hands before eating. Advice from experienced travelers - choose cafes and restaurants, which are always full of locals. This most often speaks of high-quality and inexpensive cuisine.
