Let’s face it: Sometimes, traveling while sick is inevitable. Whether you feel sick days or even hours before arriving to the airport, there are some ways to make it through the flight feeling as comfortable as possible.
Whatever your symptoms, it’s important to stay hydrated while in flight. Buy a large bottle of water before you board. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and any drinks or snacks high in sodium before and during your flight.
Be considerate of your seatmates and try your best to block your coughs and sneezes. If you don’t already have some, buy hand sanitizer and antibacterial hand wipes in the airport before you board. Make sure to sanitize your hands often and wipe down the tray table and arm rests.
Having a head cold or stomachache can be uncomfortable, so do whatever you need to do to be at your most comfortable during the flight. Stock up on nasal spray, decongestants, antacids, cough drops or any other items to help alleviate your symptoms in any way.
Tell the Flight Attendant
Let the flight attendant know you aren’t feeling well. They might be able to switch your seat to something closer to the bathroom and also accommodate you in other ways, like bringing extra water and a blanket.
Consult with your physician for medical advice.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
