When obtaining a quote for Travel Insurance to cover an Allergy, you will be asked several medical questions:
- Are you at risk of life-threatening allergic reactions?
- Have you needed Hospital Treatment for this Allergy in the last two years?
If you suffer from a Food Allergy and plan to book a flight, it is essential to check the airline's policy regarding the food services 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 be served a nut-free snack.
When booking your trip, inform the Reservation Agent and ask them to tell 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 medical requirements, and some form of Medical Identification.
Ensure your adrenaline shot is with you at all times and is in your hand luggage and not in the plane's baggage hold.
Wipe down your seat to ensure that your skin does not come into contact with spilt 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.
Check when ordering and when your food arrives that it is free of anything you may be allergic to. Carry a personal dietary card that translates your restrictions into the appropriate language.
If you suffer from a Pollen Allergy, ensure you take your medication before leaving the country to keep your symptoms under control. If possible, stay inside during peak pollen times (usually between 10 am - 4 pm).
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.
