Best Flight Socks for Christmas Travel
Thursday, 6 September 2018
In 2017 it was estimated that up to 2.7 million people left the UK over the Christmas period, whether it be to visit relatives or go to spend Christmas abroad. A further 14 million people make significant journeys within the UK over the same period, visiting friends, family or having a little Christmas getaway.
Long journeys are damaging to your health, and spending a significant amount of time sitting stationary, whether it be on a plane or in a car, can rapidly increase your chances of developing blood clots or deep vein thrombosis (DVT). It's recommended, even if you aren't considered high risk, that you prepare for your journey by wearing the appropriate items of clothing to keep blood flowing freely across your legs. This article presents our Best Flight Socks for Christmas Travel, allowing you to travel in peace this Christmas.
