Summer season is officially here! That means it’s time to pack your bags, book a flight, and go on the ultimate seaside vacation.
But before dashing out the door, be sure to have a solid game plan in place to make it a stress-free beach getaway for you and your family or friends. Let AXA, one of the leading insurance companies in the Philippines, guide you by offering these tips:
1. Pack the essentials.
A trip to the beach means you will be staying under the sun for long hours. This means that you have to pack the right essentials for your trip, including sunblock with high SPF and cooling gel to treat sunburn. Don’t forget a sand-resistant, waterproof beach bag to protect all your gadgets from getting wet, as well as a towel, mat, umbrella, your medicines, snacks, and floaters for your kids.
2. Protect yourself from the unexpected.
Nobody wishes for accidents to happen but in case they do, you can be protected with AXA Smart Traveller. It comes with a wide range of benefits, including 24-hour travel assistance, protection of personal belongings, and refunds for travel inconveniences. You can choose from Essential, Classic, and Elite Plan. The Classic and Elite Plan are compliant with the Schengen VISA requirement, the latter offering the highest coverage available. You can also choose a plan for a single trip for up to 10 adults and 10 children travelling together to and from the same destination, within the same travel period. There is also the annual plan for an individual or group.
3. Be ready in case of medical emergencies.
Aside from medicine, bring a first aid kit on your trip so you are prepared for any medical emergencies. For serious accidents that need comprehensive treatment, AXA Smart Traveller also offers medical coverage, personal accident coverage up to P5 million, and liability and personal safety coverage.
4. Stay hydrated.
It’s important to stay hydrated when faced with the summer heat and the strain of doing water sports like swimming, surfing, kite-surfing, paddling, and many more. Prevent heat stroke, headache and other sicknesses caused by heat by drinking lots of water and eating fruits and veggies with high water content like watermelon, cucumber, celery, cucumber, strawberry, and pineapple.
5. Know the condition of the ocean.
The ocean can be treacherous. Some beaches have jellyfish and other sea creatures that can be deadly if you get bitten or stung. Beaches can also have periods of big waves and high tide or low tide. Knowing the condition of the ocean before diving in is important so you can avoid any possible dangers.
6. Have fun!
Some people have the tendency to bring work with them on vacations. While it’s okay to allot a few hours to answer emails and other work-related issues, don’t forget that you are still on a rare vacation so enjoy and savor the moment with family or friends and avoid stressing.
