There are lots of issues that you can encounter on your holiday. But luckily, there are always ways around them. In this post, we’re going to look at some of the worst problems you can encounter on your vacation and how to handle them, so they don’t ruin a holiday you’ve probably been looking forward to for months.


Delayed Flight

A delayed flight is only an issue if it means that you lose a day or two of your holiday. You won’t, as long as you get an insurance plan that covers this possibility. With the right insurance, you should be able to make sure that even if a flight is delayed, you’ll still be able to fly out. You might even be able to extend your holiday to account for the couple of days you missed, fully paid for by your insurance company. This is one of the reasons why it’s worth paying a little extra for your holiday insurance, making sure that you are fully covered.

Perhaps one of the worst holiday disasters is going to a tropical climate, spending all day in the sun and waking up with a nasty burn. How did it even happen? You put on a lot of suntan lotion and yet you still look like a lobster. Well, it’s important to realize that suntan lotion will wash off if you keep jumping in and out of the water. So, if you’re at the beach, you must make sure that you keep putting the lotion back on your body.

If you do wake up with a nasty burn the next day, you need to treat it immediately. According to BeachRated, Aloe Vera gel is the best way to treat your worst sunburns. Within a few hours, you should be as right as rain and ready to get back outside. As such, it won’t ruin your holiday.
Feeling Queasy?

You can get ill on holiday. It happens more than you think and there’s only really one way to handle it. You need to skip a day and spend it lying in bed. While this will mean you’ll essentially miss one day of your vacation, it might be worth it. After 24 hours, you should be back to your old self and ready to enjoy your chosen destination again. Although, it is worth applying for full medical coverage on your insurance plan, just incase.
Lost Money


Perhaps you are in a theme park and discover - your wallet's been snatched. The best way to handle this is to make sure that you have a backup payment option. Even if you don’t plan to use it, it might be worth taking a credit card with you. That way, you’ll always have an option for buying things if you lose your primary source of money.
You might also want to think about storing this card in your hotel safe when it’s not in use.
