Do you think you need to carry with you a travel first aid kit even for a short weekend getaway?

The answer is obvious: yes!

There is a lot of reason why you should bring one even during your short vacation, and here are three of them;

1. A Travel First Aid Kit provides a big help if you have minor injuries. It is almost inevitable to stay away from cuts, burns and insect bites during vacation especially when you are the one cooking your food. More often people tend to neglect these injuries because they are minor ones and could not do further damage to health. However, even if it is a minor injury you should treat it immediately or apply first aid treatment to prevent infections.

Minor injuries would still develop into major ones if left untreated.

2. It is always a necessity for major injuries. What would you use if you cut yourself deep and blood just won't stop flowing out of your body? Do you think you could still tear a clean piece of cloth to cover the wound or to apply some pressure on the area to minimize the bleeding? I guess, it is faster to get your travel first aid kit and cut a gauze bandage.

Major injuries need first aid treatment and you couldn't just take it for granted it may lead to death. Before paramedics arrive, at least you can do something to help minimize the loss of blood, alleviate the pain or do necessary cleaning and disinfecting of the injured area.

3. It will always give you peace of mind. Knowing you are prepared if emergency happens, you can enjoy your weekend more and have peace of mind. However, it shouldn't be the reason to become reckless during your vacation; have control over yourself and observe safety activities most of the times.

While you may think going on for a short vacation on weekends does not require you to be prepared and ready for possible health threats, you're wrong. No one could ever predict what happens ahead. Therefore, it still pays a lot to bring a travel first aid kit even for a short weekend getaway.
