Travel Advice

  • Be sure to take plenty of medication with you plus some extra in case of delays.
  • Keep your medication in its original packaging and make a note of its generic name in case you need to find replacements whilst away.
  • Keep your medication in your hand luggage to reduce the chance of it being lost.
  • It is important to take all necessary precautions against picking up traveller's diarrhoea as this can be particularly dangerous to people with Crohn's Disease.
  • Eating undercooked meat is particularly hazardous. Consuming unpasteurised dairy products should also be avoided.
  • Do not drink the tap water if it is unsafe and be wary of ice in drinks and salads washed in tap water.
  • Make enquiries as to where you can receive Medical Assistance at your destination in case of emergency.
  • Symptoms such as high fever and chills, rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, dizziness and dehydration should be taken extremely seriously and Medical Assistance should be sought at once.
  • Check any timezone changes to ensure you take your medication and correct times.
  • When sightseeing and travelling carry a bag of essential items with you including, medication, a change of clothes, toilet paper and hand sanitiser, and meal replacement bars.

Global Health Insurance Card

The GHIC (Global Health Insurance Card) replaced the EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) on the 1st January 2021.

You can use this card to access medical healthcare abroad. This includes state healthcare including emergency treatment, treatment for existing medical conditions, routine maternaty care, oxygen therapy, kidney treatment and many more healthcare requirements.

Please Note: This is not a substitute for Travel Insurance, as there are restrictions on cover and you might have to pay some costs. It is important to note that this card will not cover Repatriation.
