When getting a Travel Insurance with Crohn's Disease quote, you will be asked several questions to ensure you get the correct section. These will be:
- Have you ever had any Abdominal Surgery for this condition?
- Have you ever had any episodes of Bowel Obstruction?
- How many hospital admissions have you had for Crohn's in the last two years?
- 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 losing it.
- It is essential 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.
- Inquire about where you can receive Medical Assistance at your destination in an emergency.
- Symptoms such as high fever and chills, rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, dizziness and dehydration should be taken seriously, and Medical Assistance should be sought immediately.
- Check any timezone changes to ensure you take your medication at the correct times.
- When sightseeing and travelling, carry a bag of essential items, including medication, a change of clothes, toilet paper and hand sanitiser, and meal replacement bars.
