A wise person once said, “travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer” and with countries now opening their borders for travel and the government considering travel for the fully vaccinated this is the perfect time for us to give you our four top tips for flying with epilepsy.
Tip 1 – Tell people about your epilepsy
Travelling with epilepsy isn’t necessarily a problem but for some people it may mean a bit of careful preparation and planning.
If your seizures are triggered by tiredness, dehydration, excitement or anxiety, it can be helpful to inform the airline when you book, so that the cabin crew can accommodate you during your flight. If you’re travelling with friends or family make sure everyone knows about your epilepsy and what to do if a seizure happens.
