You’ve booked your holiday but have you planned for what medicine(s) you can take abroad with you? We bring you information on travelling with medicine.
Talk to your GP about your medicine(s) before the departure date. You may need to ask for a letter from your GP outlining your prescribed medicine(s) to show to the customs officials.
Check the country that you are travelling to. International countries have different legal restrictions for medicines. Don’t leave it until the last minute, you will need to check in advance of your holiday. For further assistance, check the Foreign and Commonwealth Office at www.gov.uk/government/publications/foreign-embassies-in-the-uk
Remember that if you lose your medication whilst on holiday, we will cover up to £200 for the replacement of your lost, stolen or damaged medication.
