If you wake up and feel sick during the holidays, it is important not to panic, as that makes things worse. If you get sick while traveling, the first thing you should do is relax, take it easy, and consume water and nutrients to prevent the illness from progressing on the trip.
When resting and drinking fluids won't keep you from getting sick on vacation, it's time to notify your hotel staff and concierge. They are experienced in helping guests who have become ill abroad and know about being hospitalized in another country. They can recommend a doctor or pharmacy, making it easier to know what to do.
If your symptoms haven't gone away with a little rest or hydration, it's time to seek medical attention. Your insurance company or hotel staff can direct you to an accredited clinic where you can get the help you need. Even if you think your illness is not that serious and you prefer to spend the day at the beach, seeing a medical professional is the best option to feel better quickly.
