Medical help: Before you travel – make sure your medical insurance will cover you if something should happen. Purchase travel insurance to fill in the gaps. Some medical resources can be found online at www.tripprep.com. You can also call the International Association for Medical Assistance to Travelers at 716-754-4883. They provide a network of doctors in Europe and North America. These doctors are on call 24 hours to members at a reasonable fee. Most major credit cards provide a network of doctors as well. Travel insurance is your best protection though. It is very reasonable and you can travel without the worry.
