3 Ways You Can Reduce Travel Sickness This Summer


Travel nausea can strike without warning, and it’s perfectly capable of ruining a good trip. Whether you’re looking forward to catching a ferry, planning on making a road trip across several states, or intend to catch a plane to a tropical destination, make sure you follow these tips to reduce the risk of travel sickness as far as possible.

Get Enough Sleep

Being overtired can exacerbate travel nausea, so do your best to get a good night’s rest before you travel. If you’re considering trying to sleep on the transport, an eye mask and ear plugs can help to reduce the sensory stimuli that can cause travel nausea. Plan your outfit so that you can add or remove layers if you’re feeling too hot or too cold.

Research Travel Pills

Some pills can be seriously effective when it comes to mitigating the effects of travel sickness. If possible, conduct some tests before you leave for vacation, by trialing different brands of travel nausea medication when you’re taking shorter journeys by car, bus, or train. This way, you should be able to discover which type of medication works best for you.

Reduce Alcohol Intake

While it can be tempting to try and encourage slumber on the journey by having a drink or two, alcohol can significantly worsen the symptoms of travel nausea. Make sure you have plenty of water to drink, and a can of soda or mint-infused water can sometimes help to settle your stomach.
