Keeping Bestmed Close

Convenient Healthcare Wherever You Go

You’ve planned the activities, booked the tickets and organised a different outfit for every day. Now that the festive season is finally here, it’s time to pack your bags and go on that long-awaited, well-deserved holiday. Except, packing those bags may cause more stress than you thought.

Some of the common side-effects of carrying heavy luggage includes: fatigue, muscle strain, back pain, distortion of the spine’s natural curves, rounding of the shoulders, and poor body posture. It can also lead to cervical and lumbar pains.

Travelling light gives you extra freedom and flexibility that you just don’t have with heavy luggage. And because we want you to have the freedom to enjoy your holiday, we have the answer to giving you more convenience when you travel.
