  • Traveling With A Physical Disability

    Filed Under: Blogging

Traveling abroad on vacation or business when you have a physical disability presents its own challenges but there shouldn’t be a barrier to travel. Protect yourself with good quality international travel insurance. Consider trip cancellation insurance that will protect the investment you have made in your vacation, in the event that you cannot travel as planned.

Certain countries and destinations are easier to travel to with a disability than others. Research your destination thoroughly beforehand and make some preparations before you go to help make your trip safe and fun. Make reservations for transportation and contact the airline to let them know your requirements.
Discuss your travel plans with your physician, if you need to. Get medical advice regarding the medications you’ll need to take and any changes you need to make to your routine. You may need a letter from your physician describing your condition and the prescription medications you are carrying with you.

Make sure you have travel insurance and health insurance coverage for your time abroad. Care overseas is not likely to be covered on your regular domestic plan.
