HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR HOLIDAY DESTINATION

Having an allergy may mean you have to consider certain factors when choosing where to go. What to think about:

  • Does your travel insurance covers your allergies?
  • Holiday destination: being in remote places may mean it is more difficult to access medical help. How far is the nearest medical facility?
  • What type of activities you will be doing?

WHAT TO PACK

Ask your doctor about what documentation is required as proof when taking medication into your hand luggage.

  • Make sure you take your antihistamines; and if you have been given one, your auto-injector (AAI). Get your doctor to complete a covering letter (click here) so you can show it to the staff at the baggage check-in.
  • Do you need a translation card?
