Insurance for Visitors from India - Plan for safe Travel

Jul 20, 2008
Flying long distances for business or pleasure is very common these days. Being stuck in an economy seat for a long time it is not a lot of fun. Some simple tips can be followed to make your flight more enjoyable.

Before you buy your ticket consult one of the many online seat map guides to find out the layout of the plane. This is especially useful if you are traveling in a group and want to be seated together. Make your seat selection while you purchase your ticket. Getting to the airport early can also get you a better seat. Avoid seats near the galley and restrooms especially if you are sensitive to smells. Bulkhead seats with extra leg room are best for those traveling with children.

If you have neck and back problems make sure you carry a neck pillow. To prevent a sore back use the airline pillow between your lower back and the seat. To keep your upper body loose and limber gently twist your torso often.

To prevent swollen feet rotate them at the ankle in a circular motion. Flex and stretch your feet often to maintain good blood flow. To avoid the dangerous condition of deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in the veins in the legs) try to walk in the aisles every few hours.

Moisturize your skin often, the in flight air is very dry and can make you uncomfortable. You can also use sprays with essential oils on a damp face cloth to revitalize your skin. Drink plenty of water and avoid dehydrating drinks like alcohol and coffee.

Change in air pressure can be uncomfortable to your ears. Chewing gum can help relieve those symptoms. Take off and landing can make those symptoms worse; try drinking or eating during those times. If you already have a cold or an infection you could get an earache if you are not careful.

Wearing loose clothes in natural fabrics is key to staying comfortable. Your feet can get swollen so try to wear slip on shoes that are not very tight. A jacket or sweater may be useful if it gets cold onboard.

Having health insurance is a must when you travel abroad. You can be covered during transit if you include the dates of travel in your insurance. Your travel insurance agent can help you select the best plan.
