I  recommend using tyre sealant.  I have used it on trips to Norway, Spain and France.  No flat tyres. But when I got home there were always several yellow sealed punctures which could have been very inconvenient or even disastrous.
On a group trip a member of our party lost us all a day when he had a puncture. Expensive too.

Putting tyre sealant into the tyre can cause big problems when tyre gets changed.
 I just carry a small puncture kit. Find one that works for you. One kit should cover three bikes. But. If it's not tubeless. Carry a spare inner tube and possibly levers too. Read about one chap. Miles from anywhere. Got a puncture. No repair kit. Took out inner tube and stuffed the tyre with grass to get him to safety.
That's inprovising for ya.

He shoulda sold the grass and bought a tube.
He was in Colorado, right?  :coolio
