At Get Going we understand that travelling with a medical condition can be a bit overwhelming. However with a little planning ahead and thinking through your holiday plans you can minimise your causes for concern. Break the journey into segments and think about your requirements for each part: before you go, your journey, your accommodation needs, your medication, and your journey home.
If you are presently receiving treatment or taking a new medication, it would be a good idea to talk to your treating doctor before booking your trip. Get Going would recommend that you never try out a new drug for the first time on your trip, make sure it suits you before you travel.
It is always a good idea to check out the medical facilities local to where you are staying. Please bear in mind that although beautiful: small islands and remote destinations may not have many amenities. Check out where the nearest public hospital is too. It is worth noting that some countries have private clinics which may be close to where you are staying, however they may not be able to provide the treatment you need as they are not geared up to deal with serious or complicated medical conditions.
Countries that are further afield will require Vaccinations. Before arranging any jabs, make sure you speak to your treating doctor to check that your present medication will not have adverse effects to the inoculations. Also, your immune system could be low, which could have an influence on how any additional drugs will affect you.
However, this facility should not be treated as a replacement for travel insurance. The cover under this card is limited to the cost of medical treatment, and only at a public facility, to enable you to continue with your trip. Get Going Travel Insurance on the other hand can offer cover if you need to be repatriated back to the UK, plus cover for many more potentially expensive misfortunes. Therefore, it is important to have both an EHIC and a valid private travel insurance policy.
