Top tips for travelling with cancer

When travelling with a medical condition you should always consult your doctor first, as they will advise on whether they believe you are fit to travel. Your GP can also advise on any countries that you might do better to avoid – this is very important, especially if you have been undergoing treatment as your immune system might be compromised.

Your GP may recommend vaccinations, that are crucial for any traveller. Many forms of Cancer treatment weaken the immune system and as a result, your doctor may advise against live vaccines, as these can raise the chance of infections, instead, you may be given inactive vaccinations.

You should always pack the medication that you need within your hand luggage. This will reduce the risk of it getting lost or stolen during transit!

Inform your airline of any special circumstances, they can be very accommodating and may let you board early to avoid the rush. It’s a good idea to travel with a note from your GP that explains your situation and confirms you’re okay to travel.
