Have a jolly journey with Nelsons Travella!

There are few better feelings than planning a summer holiday, be it a couple of weeks in the sun, a city break or a day trip! However, a Nelsons Travella survey discovered an alarming 37%[i] of people find that the journey puts them off going on holiday at all! While many of us get excited about some precious ‘me’ time away from the stresses of our daily lives, for others the excitement can still be overshadowed by a major part of the holiday – the journey, with 54%[ii] of people claiming that the holiday journey affects where they choose to go.

A further Nelsons’ YouGov survey[iii] discovered that 33% of people found boats to be the type of transport that causes them to feel the most travel or motion sick, closely followed by 19% of people who feel the queeze when travelling in a coach, bus or car. Here are a few tips that could help prevent travel/motion sickness:
  • Sit facing towards the direction of travel you are going in, sitting backwards can often make travel sickness worse.
  • If you are travelling in a car sit in the front passenger seat, or drive if you can.
  • Do not read while travelling.
  • When travelling by car or boat, it can sometimes help to keep your gaze fixed on the horizon or on a fixed point.
  • Open a window for some fresh air if possible.
 Long journeys are generally not enjoyable for anyone, however, for those that experience the symptoms of travel sickness they can be even more unpleasant. To help relieve the symptoms of travel sickness, remember to pack Nelsons® Travella. It contains a unique combination of seven homeopathic remedies, each specifically chosen to help bring soothing relief for the unpleasant symptoms associated with travel sickness. This enables holidaymakers to fully enjoy the journey and prevent the thought of future journeys from affecting holiday choices! Nelsons Travella does not cause drowsiness.
