- Make sure you have all the relevant documents necessary for the duration of your medical treatment and vacation plan before you leave home. Ensure that you know your treatment and travel plan well with appropriate details about accommodation, sight-seeing, re-visiting the clinic, and other necessary requirements
- If you intend to travel with jewelry or excess cash/other high-value items, please confirm with your tour operator about the availability of safety deposit boxes with the lodging site/hotel you will be putting up at.
- Please pack a small overnight bag with basic change of garments, emergency medication and telephone numbers, toiletries, small hair-dryer, duplicate copies of important travel documents and extra cash (credit cards do not always work in all situations) to avoid distress over luggage arrival delays and other such similar situations.
- If shopping is high on your priority list, please remember to add in another bag suitable for carrying your larger purchases.
- Buy guides to exotic and unfamiliar destinations and consult these during your journey to stay updated about travel specific problems or hazards at the Indian location you are headed for, so you have a clear idea how to deal with situations.
- India being a tropical country is usually sunny and sweaty in most regions except the hills. Nylon fabrics are best avoided unless visiting cold regions in India or planning a winter visit, while reading up about dress-codes prevalent in places on your tour itinerary can guide you about garments best given a miss.
