When you suffer from extreme allergies, traveling can be difficult and uncomfortable. Fortunately, there are a few things that you can do to make your stay at a resort more comfortable. Here, you'll find a short list of things to take with you on your next trip.
Anti-Allergen Sheets and Pillowcases
One thing that will make a huge difference in how bad your allergies torment you during your travels is putting anti-allergen sheets and pillowcases on the bed. Even though the beds and pillows are prepared with clean bedding between guests, the dust mites and other allergens hiding inside the bedding can trigger your symptoms.
When you arrive at the resort, you may have the option of providing the sheets and pillowcases and request that they be put on the bed for you, but sometimes, you'll have to do it on your own. Those extra minutes you spend preparing the bed will be well worth it when you wake in the morning feeling refreshed — not snotty.
Tip: Some resorts do offer anti-allergen sheets and pillowcases upon request. Inquire at the time of booking to learn if you'll need your own or if they can be provided for you.
Do you have a portable air purifier for your travels? If not, it's time to look into buying one. These compact units can work as efficiently as the larger models that you'd use in your home. Just make sure that you select a portable unit that uses HEPA filters in it — lesser filters won't remove the contaminants from the air, and the filters will need to be replaced more often.
Booking a resort today is nothing like it was years ago — today, you have so much information about each resort available at your fingertips. Spend some time online reading through customer reviews. Search the reviews for any statements about the smell of mildew or signs of mold. Then, look at the date of the review. You can't exclude a resort from your list of possibilities because a review was left years ago — resorts change hands and go through renovations often, and the issue may no longer be a problem.
Take your time as you prepare for your trip. Talk with your doctor about allergy meds that might help relieve the symptoms if they worsen when you travel. Hopefully, you'll be able to enjoy yourself while spending some time away from home. Look for resorts in the area you're planning on staying at like Edge of the Wilderness Lodging and follow our tips to avoid allergies.Share

After I began traveling a lot for work, I began staying in a variety of different hotels around town. I began thinking more seriously about my choices when it came to lodging, and it was really insightful to realize that places needed to earn my business. I started being a little pickier in regards to where I stayed, and it felt great to feel like I had control. On my blog, I wanted to create a collection of interesting articles about hotels and lodging, since it can make your next trip to a new place a little more relaxing and enjoyable.
