FAQs

What do I need to consider before I travel?

Things to consider before you travel include:

  • Medication - divide your medication supplies in case any go missing
  • Visit your GP or specialist for information on vaccines and how the local weather might affect your condition
  • Ask your GP for a letter stating that you have diabetes and explaining that you need to carry syringes, injections and any other medication - sometimes there is a charge for these letters so ask if your letter can be written in such a way that it can be used more than once

What do I need to remember to pack?

  • Any dietary requirements and snacks for the journey
  • Diabetes ID
  • Medication - bring twice as much incase any go missing
  • It is important that you don't put your medication in the hold of the aircraft if you are flying - keep everything in your hand luggage to stop it freezing in the hold
  • Bring a spare meter and spare batteries if you use a pump
  • Buy cooling packs to keep your insulin in

How can you help me to prepare for my holiday?

Preparing to travel can be stressful, but we are here to take any stress away. Here are some ways we can help:

  • Research where the nearest hospital is to your accommodation with the appropriate medical facilities
  • Find out where you can get supplies of insulin incase of emergency
  • Ensure that your accommodation and the local area is wheelchair accessible if this is necessary
  • Plan appropriately adapted and fantastic day trips

I am concerned about flying - can you help me to prepare for the flight?

There are a few things that need to be arranged before you fly. We are able to help you to prepare by:

  • Making sure the airline know that you will have your medical supplies in your hand luggage - remember it's important that you have a letter from your GP explaining your need for medication.
  • Priority boarding and assistance at the airport if you are a wheelchair user
  • Accessible transfers to accommodation

What about travel insurance?

We would advise that you get travel insurance. We do recommend you try fish insurance who cover diabetes.
