Cars, as long as its machine is working, will run, but when you got toddlers in tow, some car accessories are more like a necessity and not a luxury, and with a plethora of the latest car accessory options, below are the must-have that’ll make the road trip easier for the parents and enjoyable for the toddlers.

Floor and Dicky Mat. – Eating can keep the toddler occupied during traffic and that means crumbs and spills that could rust the car’s floor. Good thing there’s floor mats – originally designed to protect a vehicle’s floor from dirt, wear, and corrosion; it can keep the car floor’s life longer while making it look clean. It’s easily placed and removed for cleaning and replacement. Dicky Mats on the other hand offers unique solution for keeping the car trunk clean. You can personalized the dicky mat according to your car boot size, you can fit the edges so that dirt won’t pass through.

Seat Covers. – If you have floor mats, it will only follow that you have seat covers as well. Leathers are a good choice especially when sticky juices and sauces spill in between those clumsy tiny fingers as it could be cleaned with just a few swipes of wet wipes and a spray of alcohol.

Sun Film and Window Shade. – Both of these will keep the cars temperature on steady while protecting the car’s interiors and the occupants including the toddlers from the extreme climatic conditions. You can pick colorful shades or cartoon characters for kids’ attention, or not.

Remote-locking security system. – Aside from added security, remote-locking security system can give you convenience when your hands are full of toddler.

Child Safety Lock. – This small switch is typically engage to prevent unauthorized exit from the vehicle. It’s a simple way to keep the toddlers safe and secure despite their constant fidgeting on the door.

Window Lock. – If they can’t opened the door, they’ll make way on the window. The window lock will keep the children on the back seat safe as when the lock is active, only the driver can control all the vehicle’s windows.

EZ Baby Saver. –  Children are dying each year from being left in hot cars, and Andrew Pelham’s Rubber Band invention, the EZ Baby Saver is actually an effective way to save toddlers in hot cars.

Child Seat. –  When properly installed and used,  child safety seat is effective in protecting children during vehicular collisions.

 

These are the basic car accessories that parents should consider adding to make the vehicle safe and toddler-friendly! What other car accessories do you think parents should add? Comment on the section box below.

The adventurous part of you is constantly curious about what is actually out there – we are actually born to discover, and travelling is the perfect way to feed our curiosity. With wider access to roads, airline fees and travel packages becoming more and more affordable, the wonder to wander is inevitably exciting!

You just have to be doubly sure that sunset at the California beach feels different with the view of Aurora Borealis in Iceland, and that the constant salty breeze of the Caribbean sea is way hotter than the dewy fog of the highlands in Alaska, that Greenland is actually covered with white snow, and for the hopeless romantics, your forever is living in the suburbs of France riding a bicycle waiting for you to run him a little over…

13155461724_8107915efc_b.jpgThe aurora borealis is one of the world’s biggest and most spectacular phenomenons, and Iceland is one of the best places to witness these amazing sights. – icelandnaturally.com

The Worries

What if, by neglect, you lost your passport?

What if, by stroke of ill-fate, your luggages are stolen?

What if, by any chance, you got involved on an accident abroad?

We can actually wonder and the possibilities are audaciously lethal. Waiting for the bad things to happen is not a good habit…

But that annoying sane-freaky part of you is actually designed to keep you alive; why, these are just some of the unforeseen but very possible inconveniences and unanticipated emergencies that could occur when travelling, hence, in the sense of feeding your curiosity, you have to learn how to compromise – or better yet, keep your sane-freaky part at peace.

How? Simply by adding Malayan Online Travel Master Insurance.

With Malayan Travel Master, you won’t have to.

One on one meeting when getting life insurance is best, but for non-life insurance like traveling, meeting up at the branch or with a broker is actually an inconvenience! Simply because the time is very limited since you have to secure your travel dates first before actually purchasing one. Some may even think of adding travel insurance in the last minute! Hence, Malayan Insurance encourages travellers and jet-setters to use their online channels for quick transactions, easy communications and outlined researches.

You can research and buy Malayan Travel Master at http://www.malayan.com/products/packaged/travel-master but of course, you can still consult and ask questions to any Malayan Insurance agent and broker.

Personal Liability – Filipinos are driving on the left side of the road, what if you risk in driving on the left and you accidentally hurt someone or damage a property? Or say, that you’re the bicycle rider who run over the lad? Travel Master will shoulder these risks so you can enjoy starting your getting-to-know stage that’ll, if odds are indeed in your favour, probably lead you to a wedding trip. Just make sure you won’t risk running over, this time!

“No more wasted expenses for cancelled trip with Travel Master.”

Fret not, Travel Master has an Emergency Trip Termination feature that will reimburse unused portion of travel and the non-refundable accommodation expenses that have been paid in advance. If the trip has been cancelled within 30 days prior to the scheduled, the Emergency Trip Cancellation feature will reimburse even the non-refundable portion of travel and accommodation expense. In any case, the termination or cancellation of the trip must result from death or life threatening sickness or injury of the insured, or from a member of the immediate family requiring immediate medical attention.

Travel Inconvenience Benefits – Losing important travel documents can make an adventure a disaster. Travel Master offers benefits for loss of documents, baggage. It even covers baggage delay, flight delay due to severe weather, mechanical trouble, strikes, and even skyjacking!

#InsuretobeSure

People cringe and sometimes, people feels awkward and uncomfortable when talking about inconveniences brought by unanticipated accidents and untimely emergencies especially when on travelling, because who wants accidents to happen, right? Some even believes that thinking about it can actually attract it. Right again, you’re not!

In reality, thinking about the worst-case scenarios and doing something to prevent it can actually save you. In any given circumstances, nothing’s more annoying than a planned vacation ruined just by being neglectful and unprepared. Do you want your sane-freaky part to run in your head, shouting “I knew it!” again and again instead of mentally patting yourself in the back while basking in the sun?

Make your travel worry-free and with peace of mind, by prioritizing Malayan Travel Master on your travel checklist, because working in the concrete jungle for so long, you deserve worry-free adventures!

Don’t miss out the fun this summer!

Fight allergies with Claritin anytime, anywhere this travel season

Claritin Flatlay - 3.jpg

Allergens are ubiquitous and may be found in various places.  If you’re planning to hit the beach with your friends this summer, there’s a chance that you’ll get itchy hives if you are allergic to the burning heat of the sun or some types of seafood.  If hiking is your thing, you might find yourself incessantly sneezing due to the pollens from the plants that you’ll be seeing along the dusty trail.

If you catch these allergies, you probably can’t make the most out of your summer vacation.  How can you flaunt your favorite swimsuit if you have rashes all over?  How can you enjoy your favorite local seafood if you’re fearful that they will just trigger your allergies?  How can you laugh along with your friends if you keep on sneezing?  These allergies will zone you out and might make you miss out on the memorable moments of your summer.  You wouldn’t want that, would you?

This is why you always need to have an anti-allergy medicine in your packing checklist.  Just one tablet a day of Loratadine (Claritin) will help free you from the symptoms of allergy so that you can enjoy and experience your summer vacation with all of your senses.

Have a great, allergy-free summer!

Claritin is available in regular tablet format (Claritin Tablets), oral disintegrating tablet (Claritin Reditabs), and in syrup format (Claritin Syrup for Kids) in all your favorite drugstores nationwide.
