Travel Abroad

There are a few things related to your health that you need to bear in mind when travelling abroad. Before embarking on your journey you should get in touch with your health insurance and find out whether you have worldwide coverage or not. If you don’t have worldwide coverage you should consider taking out travel insurance for the duration of your travels abroad.

Besides insurance coverage it’s crucial that you inform yourself whether you need to get vaccines to protect yourself from serious diseases. We recommend visiting a doctor for an initial consultation. Based on your travel plans he or she will be able to tell you what vaccinations you need to get prior to your travels and what medicine you need to take with you.
