No matter the destination, all travelers should be aware of possible germs they will encounter. From bedbugs to dengue fever, travelers will encounter a multitude of pests, bacteria and viruses. Here are five of the dirtiest spots travelers are likely to visit.
To avoid germs while traveling, RoamRight offers advice similar to that which you’d follow at home: Keep your hands clean. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water or use antibacterial disinfectant. Precautions such as disposable face masks may offer some additional protection.
In the event that you do get sick while traveling, it’s always helpful to have a RoamRight travel insurance policy. That way you’ll have plenty of help if you need to seek local medical care.
