Did you know that if you are travelling by air when you have a disability, or need help moving around tour operators, have a duty to assist by reducing the barriers to physical travel that may exist for disabled people? So says the Equality Act 2010.
If you dip into the Equality and Human Rights Commission website here you will discover that if you are travelling in Europe, under European law Air Passengers’ Rights you can receive assistance when you fly to and from places in Europe.
But before you book, check out Direct Travel’s insurance to make sure you are covered if the unthinkable happens and your condition means you have to seek medical help while abroad.
It’s important that you talk to your GP to ensure you are fit to travel and that your medication is not a banned substance in your destination country. Keep a list of it, too.
Direct Travel offers insurance for some existing needs, providing they are declared at the time of booking, so talk to our representatives to see what they can offer.
You will need to provide us with a list of the medications you are taking, details about your condition and any treatment you might have had. Now go off and enjoy yourself.
