When obtaining a quote for Travel Insurance to cover an Allergy, you will be asked a number of medical questions.
- Are you at risk of life threatening Allergic reactions ?
- Have you needed Hospital Treatment for this Allergy in the last 2 years ?
Answering these questions will then allow us to provide a quote for your trip.
If you suffer from a Food Allergy and are planning to book a flight, it is important to check the Allergy policy of the Airline you are flying with regarding food service available.
If you suffer from a Peanut Allergy, try and find an Airline that does not serve complimentary peanuts with their drinks. You can also request that you are served a nut free snack such as pretzels.
When booking your trip, inform the Reservation Agent and ask them to inform other relevant personnel such as the Flight Crew and Catering Staff of your Allergy.
Carry with you your adrenaline, emergency plan, a letter from your Doctor stating your Allergy and your medical requirements as well as some form of Medical Identification.
Make sure your adrenaline shot is with you at all times and is in your hand luggage and not in the baggage hold of the plane.
Wipe down your seat to ensure that your skin does not come into contact with any spilled foods or food particles that could cause a reaction.
When travelling, be conscious of the food you come into contact with and always inform any restaurant staff of your Allergy as well.
Check when ordering and when your food arrives that it is free of any thing you may be allergic to. Carry on you a personal dietary card that translates your restrictions into the appropriate language.
If for example, you suffer from a Pollen Allergy, ensure you take your medication with you before leaving the country to keep you symptoms under control.
If possible, stay inside during peak pollen times (usually 10am - 4pm). Ask for a room in your Hotel that has not had pets staying in it before you, if you are allergic to pet hair.
If you are allergic to insect bites, try avoiding anything that will attract insects such as flowers and plants.
Try to drink out of a glass instead of a can or bottle, as insects can hide in a can or bottle and sting your lips.
Avoid bright colours and wear long sleeves and trouser legs that cover your skin and protect you from potential stings and bites.
Booking Your Flight - Research the different airline's allergy policies.
Before you leave the country, it is important to purchase a Travel Insurance policy that will cover your Allergy.
