Before leaving the U.S., determine verify if you have MEDICAL COVERAGE.
Medicare WILL NOT PAY for healthcare services when you travel outside the
U.S except in rare cases.
If you have Supplemental Insurance, check and verify with your "Provider" to see if they include or offer coverage outside the U.S.
If coverage is not included in your plan, purchase a TRAVEL INSURANCE POLICY that includes international healthcare coverage.
READ THE FINE PRINT
A report recently completed about travel insurnace found that airline and OTA websites "offer only bare-bones travel insurance plans with little coverage and a long list of exclusions that leave customers stranded," and they "commonly overstate" the flexibility of the policies. The details, the report contends, are buried in fine print.
"Consumers are pressured to buy plans that promise extensive or even total coverage but in reality offer very little, leaving them without the security they thought they bought and oftentimes without their money,"

PASSPORTS & VISAs
IS YOUR PASSPORT VALID FOR TRAVEL
(although, it has not yet expired) ?
The Passport Services department at the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs continues to receive reports of U.S. citizen travelers unable to board international flights because their passports do not have the required passport validity.
Passports should be valid through the dates of your trip, but most countries in the European Union require passports be valid for at least three months from planned date of departure and some countries even require passports be valid for at least six months from date of departure.

WHAT DO YOU NEED? Adapters, Converters, and Transformers? Normally when you travel to Europe the only thing you need is a Dual Voltage Adapter for a cell phone and laptop.
Purchase a UNIVERSAL ADAPTER, rather than, using different adapters for different countries.
- Phones & Laptops; you need is an adapter to plug it into the wall.
- A razor or electric toothbrush may work that way also, however, you need to know if your device is dual voltage.
A VOLTAGE CONVERTER allows devices to run at high temperatures (and cannot be run on whatever electricity is provided).
- A voltage converter is not going to help with electronics that aren’t dual voltage.
- Hair devices (flat irons, curling irons, blow dryers) use dual voltage.
- The U.S. runs on 110 volt electricity.
- Japan is 100 volts.
- Europe, Asia, and Australia run between 220 volts and 240 volts.
A TRANSFORMER changes the current to something closer to pure voltage.
- If you are using electronics that are not DUAL VOLTAGE you need a Transformer. When traveling, use the smallest transformer possible based on the wattage of your device.
- In choosing between a CONVERTER or TRANSFORMER, you need to know the maximum wattage at which your device(s) operate.
- You need a Converter or Transformer that is certified to operate at greater than that wattage.
