11 Ways to Avoid Getting Sick While Traveling

10) Bring Wet Wipes

Wherever you go it is always a good idea to carry wet wipes with you. You never know when you will need to clean your hands, or the surface in front of you. This is especially useful on airplanes, or when you stay in hotel rooms. Always wipe down tray tables on airplanes and the door knobs in hotel rooms as these are often surfaces that housekeeping forgets to clean, and they contain high concentrations of germs. If you are traveling with small children, wet wipes are important since kids are always dropping their toys and putting objects in their mouth. The best part of wet wipes is they are easy to carry with you in your bag. You can also pack an extra supply in your check-in luggage so you’re certain to have plenty on hand for your entire trip.
