Travel Sickness (Motion Sickness)

I´d like to know if anyone has any foolproof(ish!) remedies for travel sickness! Personally I don´t suffer it but I sell tickets for a fishing trip on a boat & the fear of getting it puts a lot of people off! There are two types of pills you can get here plus travel bands (has anyone used these & do they work?) Also I heard ginger or melon were meant to be good. Any tips I can pass on to my worried customers would be appreciated!! :-)

You can rub or press the inside of your wrist in line with the base of your thumb, its an accupuncture point and it's meant to help. Ginger helps too so buy a packet of gingersnaps or crystalised ginger and pass it round - it is an acquired taste though.

My sister gets headache now and then. But when she travels more than say 75 kms in a day, she feels the travelling is sickening. She gets severe headache, vomitting. She so much allergic to travelling, she hardly travels. Even by flight, she gets headaches.

I get terrible motion sickness! The pills do work; sometimes they make you sleepy. Bonine seems to make me less sleepy. Sucking on peppermint candy helps. Coke or Pepsi, cold, helps too.

Dramamine works for me. Also make sure they are eating regularly...not 3 large meals, 5-6 small meals.
