Whoa! Think Twice Before Leaving Your Luggage On A Hotel Bed And Other

Useful Tips

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Dec. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Briggs & Riley Travelware, a leader in innovative, high quality luggage, reports that a growing number of travelers are quite concerned about the state of health and sanitation at tourist attractions and travel hotspots, according to a poll the company conducted of well traveled professionals and vacationers. More and more people are worried about health conditions in airports and planes, hotels, trains, concert halls and theaters. The poll also revealed that indicated that most folks are concentrating on what they can do to travel healthy and prevent flair ups of colds, allergies, skin ailments and stomach disorders.

Below are the top suggestions from enlightened travelers to keep all vacationers healthy and happy this holiday season:

-- Keep the Bed Bugs Away: Never put luggage on a hotel bed when you

arrive and leave for the day. Reports have shown that bed bugs exist

even at the most luxury hotels in the United States and overseas. If

bags are left on the bed while out for a day of sightseeing, bed bugs

can seep into luggage and clothing.

-- Wrap, Wrap, Wrap: TSA security guards wear gloves to keep sanitary but

go through hundreds of bags a day and contract germs. Some travelers

suggest wrapping your clothes in pressed plastic bags that zip up and

flatten to ensure your belongings remain untouched and sanitary. Also,

pack extra large plastics bags for items that may be damp or wet.

-- Wipes To The Rescue: Even when traveling without the kids always take a

package of wipes for use everywhere -- restrooms, eating on the go,

airplanes, cars, restaurants -- wipes are invaluable for spills,

stains, and germs.

-- Think Ahead For Healthy Travel: Copy important pages of your passport

and keep a copy in your luggage and on you in case of emergency hotel

or doctor visits. Bring slip on shoes to wear in the hotel room.

-- Some Carry-On Essentials: Sleep better on the plane and in the hotel

with and ear plugs. Bring nose drops, chapstick, vapor rub (especially

for over-heated hotels and homes), and cold pills as crowds breed germs

and getting sick happens quick. Also, a warm shawl for women or

sweaters for men is always a good idea to stay warm on the plane and

avoid what can be germ-ridden airplane blankets.

-- Carry Duplicate Prescriptions and More: Always carry your prescription

medicine and eyeglasses in your carry-on bag. Also make sure to bring

the prescriptions, too. In the holiday rush, you might misplace the

drugs or glasses, and you'll be able to replace them with less hassle

if you have the prescriptions. And consider throwing a change of

underwear in your carry-on bag. If you're stuck en route when an

airport is closed for weather delays or security reasons, you may end

up spending a night at an intermediate point without access to your

checked bags.

Briggs and Riley wants traveling to be a great experience for everyone. We build our luggage with that in mind and we are hopeful that every journey turns out to be a rewarding and fruitful one.
