Travel Advice

If you suffer from Bipolar Disorder and want to travel, it is important that you first purchase a travel insurance policy before you leave the country.

Depending on the answer to the medical questions, in most cases a single trip policy is usually the best option to cover Bipolar Disorder.

There are many aspects of travelling that can act as triggers for a depressive episode, including increased stress and disrupted sleep patterns.

When Travelling with Bipolar Disorder

  • Make sure that you are on medication that you know works for you.
  • It is not a good idea to travel soon after you have changed your medication, as any adverse affects can ruin the holiday.
  • Do not travel when you are suffering from erratic moods.
  • Carry enough medication with you to last the trips, plus extras in case of emergency / delays.
  • Travel with someone that is able to identify any warning signs of an onset of mood change and is able to cope with the situation.
  • Keep your medication in your hand luggage.
  • Split it between your luggage and that of the person or people you are travelling with in case one bag gets lost.
  • Carry a recent prescription and a letter from your doctor detailing your condition.
  • Try to cut down on as much stress as possible; plan a relaxing holiday.
  • Get as much sleep as possible and try to maintain your regular sleep patterns to a great extent as is possible.
