Plan Ahead to Avoid Travel Emergencies

Plan Ahead to Avoid Travel Emergencies

Even the best-laid plans can quickly unravel when an emergency strikes. Lost luggage. A sudden illness on the road. A nasty discussion with local authorities about state firearm regulations.

While there's no way to completely avoid accidents or on-the-road emergencies, these simple travel tips can help keep your travel plans on track.
  • Make copies of your driver's license, credit cards and passport before you leave on your trip. Then make sure they're tucked safely in a carry-on bag.
  • If possible, travel with only one or two credit cards. Plan to use one for most of your travel expenses and keep the second one for emergencies only. (Carrying more credit cards will mean more headaches if your wallet is lost or stolen.)
  • Never list your home address on your luggage tags. Use a business address to avoid alerting others that your home may be unoccupied for an extended period of time.
  • Pack a small flashlight to keep by your bed while travelling. You never know when you may find yourself suddenly "in the dark" due to a power outage or because you're simply not familiar with the light switches.
  • If you're bringing firearms for hunting, shooting competitions, personal protection or because you're moving, make sure you NRA-ILA ::
  • If you're flying with firearms or ammunition, TSA: Prohibited Items and your airline's website to make sure your guns are packed properly.
  • Pack a "Travel First Aid Kit" that includes bandages, sunscreen, mosquito repellant and alcohol wipes.
Planning ahead can help you avoid travel headaches and "on-the-road" emergencies. But you can't completely avoid all accidents or medical emergencies.
That's why thousands of NRA members also set up "Emergency Assistance Plus" (EA+) for their families.
EA+ gives you a dedicated "Emergency & Medical Support Team" ... making sure you get the care you need in an emergency ... that you get it quickly ... and then gets you home safely. Think of EA+ as your emergency back-up plan. With help available 24 hours a day. Every day. From ANY place you might be.
Boren's Laws of the Bureaucracy: 1. When in doubt, mumble. 2. When in trouble, delegate. 3. When in charge, ponder.
