A Travel Guide for Adults With Sickle Cell Disease
source: South Thales Sickle Cell & Thalassaemia Network
People with sickle cell disease generally adapt well to air travel, but it can create difficulties for some. For this reason, it is important to plan ahead and know about potential problems so you can take preventative measures or deal with them should they occur.
Choose a travel agent that is registered with ABTA or ATOL. You will need to inform the airline, travel agent and insurance company that you have sickle cell disease. If you fail to tell the insurance company this may invalidate your travel cover. Make sure you take out enough travel insurance. Always read the small print before you buy as you want to make sure you are fully covered for last minute cancellation due to illness or an air ambulance home if necessary.read more
