This study describes the prevalence of illness, injury and subsequent changes to homeward bound travel and the costs for a group of Norwegian travelers. The results of this study when compared with those of other European travellers revealed that sufficient difference occurs such that pre-departure information needs to target better specific population groups with respect to minimizing the risk of illness and injury. As well, the collection of data by the insurance company misses the opportunity of acquiring data of real value for future travelers, the insurance company and the medical profession. It is argued that there is a need to develop a comprehensive data base of greater use than available currently.
