10 Egypt travel tips for elderly travelers

  1. Find out whether you need to get any new shots: You do not require any special vaccinations before flying if you’re going to Egypt. In general, discover what precautions you and your fellow travelers may be needed to take before traveling overseas by visiting the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
  2. Consult your primary care physician: Inform your doctor about your trip intentions and any measures you should take. The doctor may request that you come in for a checkup or any required vaccines.
  3. Inquire about when you should take your prescriptions: If you take medications and will be crossing time zones, consult with a physician about whether you should take them at your typical home time zone time or switch to the local time zone. Inquire whether any new meals you try while traveling may interfere with your prescriptions or health issues.
  4. Have your healthcare providers’ contact information in writing as well as for emergency purposes.
  5. Protect yourself against deep vein thrombosis (DVT): DVT is more common in older people, and it occurs when blood clots develop in your veins and impede blood flow, mainly in your legs. Long periods of inactivity on an airplane or train might contribute to DVT. However, some studies suggest that wearing “compression stockings” can help prevent this deadly disease. Taking regular pauses to walk or exercise your legs during a long ride can also help prevent DVT. Consult your healthcare practitioner.
  6. Keep your drugs in their original, labeled containers: Do the same with prescription and over-the-counter medications, as well as vitamins. This will also make customs easy for you.
  7. Bring your prescriptions with you on the plane: To minimize loss or damage, pack your prescriptions in your carry-on luggage and bring it with you on the plane.
  8. Avoid becoming sick and dehydrated: Wear masks when in crowds and refrain from contacting surfaces in crowded places as ways to protect yourself from infectious diseases. Pay strict attention to the foods and beverages you consume, especially water, cold, fresh juices, salads, and uncocked cuisine.
  9. Before eating, wash your hands or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, especially if you have been on a crowded airline, train, or bus.
  10. Drink lots of mineral bottled water.
