The holidays are a busy season of travel, visits with family, and celebrations throughout the season. While traveling may already be hectic enough, it is crucial also to remember to care for your hearing aids properly on the road. Because your hearing aids are so crucial to your hearing ability, it is essential to ensure that they remain clean, intact, and your luggage as you are on the go this winter! If your winter holiday plans are causing you to fly in the upcoming weeks, consider these important tips for flying with your hearing aids.
Bring Along Extra Batteries for your Trip
As you are traveling for the holidays, it is not uncommon for items to be misplaced, lost, or not functioning properly. For this reason, it is crucial to bring along extra batteries for your hearing aid so that you are not without them if they are lost along the way.
Pack Your Charging Devices
If your hearing aids require a charge after a certain period, you must remember to pack your hearing aid charger! Chargers are among some of the most frequently left behind items. However, they are essential for using your hearing aid on your trip. Don’t miss out on holiday fun with your family because of a dead battery in your hearing aid!
Take Along Cleaning Materials
In addition to keeping your hearing aid charged, it is also essential to keep it clean so that it can function properly throughout your trip. As you pack your luggage and carry on, don’t forget to take your cleaning cloths and cases!
Bring Extra Wax Guards
While you may not necessarily need it right away, an extra wax guard is always helpful for emergencies. With extra materials for your hearing aid, you can be prepared for any unforeseen situations that would otherwise prevent you from hearing clearly on your holiday trip.
Pack a Dehumidifier, if Necessary
A dryer or dehumidifier may be necessary for drying your hearing aid at night if you are doing to a humid location for the holidays. Keep your hearing aid clean and dry in your travels with the right tools!
