It is finally the summer holiday season and if like me, you have plans to get away with the family to enjoy some quality time together. We are so looking forward to spending some time together in the sun, and on the beach. I guess, no matter how you will be travelling, by car, by boat, or plane, it can be a problem if you or a family member suffers from travel sickness. But there are ways to help you with this and one of them is using a Sea-Band wrist band.
We were contacted by Sea-Band to review their wrist bands and to also host a GIVEAWAY for three of my lucky readers to win a Sea-Band Holiday Activity Bundle. Check the bottom of this post for more information about the giveaway.
Sea-Band are acupressure knitted wrist bands that are clinically proven to relieve motion sickness and morning sickness in addition to helping with post-operative and chemotherapy-induced nausea. They are the natural choice for drug free relief of all types of nausea.
- Natural relief
- No side effects
HOW DOES IT WORK
It operates by applying pressure on the Nei Kuan acupressure point on each wrist by means of a plastic stud. Because the bands do not use drugs, they do not cause any of the side effects associated with anti-nausea drugs and can be worn on each wrist whenever you feel nauseous. They are suitable for adults and children. The nausea is typically reduced within 5 minutes after Sea-Bands are applied.
Sea-Band may be used to relieve motion sickness, morning sickness and cancer nausea and vomiting. To ensure your Sea-Bands work properly, you should follow the instructions of how to position your wristbands correctly. You should place your middle three fingers on the inside of your wrist with the edge of the third finger on the wrist crease. The Nei-Kuan point is just under the edge of your index finger between the two central tendons. Position the button facing downward over the Nei-Kuan point. Repeat the process for the other wrist.
SEA-BAND FOR ADULTS AND KIDS
Sea-Bands are available for adults and kids. This is very handy if you have a child that suffers from nausea. When I was pregnant with Sienna I was looking for a solution for my nausea and found out about this brand and bought a pair to try. I wore it a few times when I felt I really needed some help and it worked but thankfully my nausea didn’t last too long and I was fine after the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. I know some people have used them throughout the whole of their pregnancy as their nausea didn’t ease and they were grateful to find a solution.
We received a couple of kid’s Sea-Band wrist bands for each of my girls too. They came in pink with a cool design. My girls really love the idea of wearing them. They see it as an accessory rather than something that might help them if they get travelling sickness. We haven’t needed to use them as we have not been away and my girls have been fine but when we do travel we are looking forward to taking them with us just in case we need them. They come in different colours which make it even cooler! They are machine washable and come in handy cases so you can keep them safe and clean.
WHERE YOU CAN BUY THEM
Sea-Band is sold in pharmacy and drugstore chains across the world. It is available from all major retailers and online. You can get it from Boots for £8.59 or Amazon from £7.99 (blue colour). See Amazon details below:
HAPPY HOLIDAY ACTIVITY PACK
We were also sent a fun holiday activity pack to keep and use when we travel with the girls. This activity kit from Sea-Band is great to keep the family busy and engaged throughout your journey, whether you are waiting in queues, or on board the plane or boat, or even at your destination. We are really looking forward to taking them on our next holiday.
This fun and entertaining colouring book comes with plenty of games, mazes, word squares and spot the differences, combined with samples of Sea-Bands. So, however you get to your destination, Sea-Band’s Happy Holiday Activity booklet is packed with full activities for the kids of all ages which means there will be a lot less arguments this summer!
If you are planning to travel this summer and any of your family members suffers from travel sickness, you should get one of these Se-Band wristbands. For more information about types of nausea and forms of prevention, visit the Sea-Band website.

i’ve used them for myself – but i think the child size ones would be fab for the kids. all 3 of mine suffer from travel sickness intermittently so this is a great drug-free way of keeping it under control
amanda walsh says
My son suffers terribly, we keep trips short and sit him near an open window
Kate Davies says
I suffer from travel sickness and the only thing Ive found that helps is to go to sleep, but obviously when you have children you can’t do,that. I’ve not heard of seabands before so will have to give them a try.
Sarah prescott says
My niece suffers with travel sickness so if I was lucky enough to win I would give them to her to try.

Ginger sweets seem to help
JULIE WARD says
I don’t suffer but one of the grandchildren do’s, this would be useful for him
Simone Griffin says
I usually sit in the front of the car and look straight ahead but I would love to try these (as would my step daughter who is getting more car sick as she gets older).
Hayley Todd says
I don’t suffer with travel sickness but our eldest daughter suffers terribly. She is travel sick on trains, cars, aeroplanes – any mode of transport, you name it, she is travel sick! We have tried all different remedies, but we use Sea-Bands and travel sickness medication and thankfully she is now able to travel without feeling and being so ill throughout the journey.
Craig Everitt says
These bands sound like a revolutionary idea for people such as me that struggle with motion and travel sickness
Sam parkes says
Yes I do, always take travel sweets with me on journeys
sharon stanley says
I do suffer from travel sickness and usually take my cyclizine tablets prescribed from my GP if it gets too bad or a long haul journey. I have tried sea bands before, I used them during my last pregnancy as was sick from weeks in all the way till the day I gave birth. I think they reduced the sickness, but didn’t take it all away due to some of it being caused by brain pressure being too high not just the pregnancy itself.
Anthea Holloway says
I have heard of them but have never tried them. As long as I keep my head up and look out of the window I am OK – not good at reading maps though!
Tracy Gladman says
My husband suffers from sea sickness and had a terrible bout when we were on our cruise this year. We were given some of these to try by a fellow passenger and they were excellent. Definitely worked and he felt much better shortly after putting them on.
Jennifer Baker says
My daughter suffers with travel sickness and im not too good on a plane. Ive never heard of these they sound fab. Must give them try xx
Jo Hutchings says
I do suffer from sea-sickness. I have heard of travel bands but never used them as I thought they might be tricky to put on correctly. I usually use over the counter remedies.
Rachael Sexey says
I do get motion sickness unfortunately so I normally take travel sickness tablets for this
