When obtaining a quote for Travel Insurance to cover Arthritis, you will be asked several medical questions:
- What type of Arthritis do you have?
- Have you had any of your joints replaced or resurfaced?
- Do you currently use any Mobility Aids because of your Arthritis?
- Have you ever needed treatment for any Neck or Back problems?
- How many unplanned hospital admissions have you had for Arthritis in the last year?
When travelling with Arthritis, it is essential to make sure you have enough medication to last the duration of the trip. Keep your medicines in your carry-on luggage if your hold luggage is lost or delayed.
Make sure your medicine is clearly labelled with your identification, that of your Doctor, the name of the medication, and any other pertinent information.
It may be necessary to prove the medication is yours in certain places for security reasons, so ensure the medication labels are correctly labelled to match your identity.
If you need to carry needles or syringes, take a Medical Prescription proving their necessity so you do not have any problems getting through security with them.
If you travel to a hot climate, you may need to store your medicine in a cool place or out of direct sunlight. Many types of medication will increase your sensitivity to the sun, meaning you may need to be more careful when protecting your skin.
Check with your Doctor about adapting the time you take your medication in different time zones when you are away.
- When choosing flights and an Airline for your holiday, try to find a direct flight to avoid the physical challenges of changing flights.
- If you require assistance at the Airport, you should contact the Airline or Airport Authorities before your trip.
- With your Travel Agent, choose a Hotel for your holiday that will accommodate your requirements.
- Choose an area with transport options available should you wish to travel around the site you are visiting, and there is wheelchair access if you need it.
Areas with steep hills or many steps to climb could cause problems for your Arthritis when you are on holiday, so be realistic with your abilities and choose your holiday destination carefully.
Wear light clothing in hot climates and comfortable and appropriate shoes that will not cause problems with your Arthritis.
