As holidays or vacation time approaches, it is never too early to think about protecting yourself from the risk of blood clots when you travel for more than four hours – whether it is by plane, train, car or bus.

The National Blood Clot Alliance has published a one page “Passport to Safety” that provides a common-sense guide to what you need to know to prevent blood clots when you are traveling for long distances.
