Traveling to Aruba With Prescription Medication

Aruba Bound
Do yourself the favor of avoiding lots of aggravation and pack your prescription medications in your carry on. It may be more convenient to pack them in your luggage, but what would you do if you end up in Aruba without your luggage and thus no medicine? Most people do not travel with written copies of their prescriptions.

I learned this lesson the hard way. Not wanting to lug a carry on, I packed my meds in my suitcase. The suitcase did not make it to my destination, thus I had NO medication.

Fortunately I was only traveling domestically and the luggage was delivered to my accommodations about 7 hours after my arrival.

My tips for traveling with medication.
