Why Bring a Travel First AID Kit?

Image yourself sitting on a sunny beach with clear blue skies and your toes in the sand. Something that is so perfect could turn into a disaster in a minute if you’re not prepared.

Most of us don’t think it’s necessary to have a first aid kit taking up space in our already overstuffed suitcase, but adding this one tiny bag to your packing list could make or break your holiday.

Traveling to different countries effects everyone differently, but don’t take the risk! Just like your suitcase, don’t over pack your first aid kit and keep it to the basic necessities. To help you know what you should and should not have with you, we put together this simple packing list for your travel emergency kit.
