Top tips for travelling with asthma

  • Discuss your holiday plans with your doctor four to six weeks before you travel they may have some advice relevant to your particular needs and will want to review your personal asthma action plan.
  • Choose your destination wisely humid climates will contain high levels of pollen and mould; cold countries can be problematic for those whose asthma is triggered by low temperatures. Avoid staying in polluted cities or anywhere there are pets, smoke or a lack of air-conditioning.
  • Carry all your asthma medicines as hand luggage take a little extra in case of emergencies and bring a list of all your prescribed medicines, or ask for a letter from your doctor. Keep your medicines in their original packaging, and find out the names of your medication in your destination and how you can get medical help there. Remember to check out up to date security and baggage restrictions.
  • Contact the airport and your airline in advance if you think you will need any special assistance or equipment before or during your flight.
  • Ensure your nebuliser is serviced if you have one and don't forget a mains adaptor suitable for the country you're visiting. Asthma UK has a very useful section on travelling with asthma.
