Summer travel with a child's illness


As many of you will know from first-hand experience, traveling with children, in general, can be a difficult situation, but travelling with a child who has a serious illness can be an even bigger challenge.


Whether you have a holiday planned abroad or if you will be travelling closer to home, we have compiled a top tips list of how you can prepare for your summer holiday’s travel:


- Take lots of water so everyone can stay hydrated

- Bring snacks and games to keep your children preoccupied

- Bring ice pops, mini fans and hats from the freezer to keep cool

- Take regular breaks, and if very hot, only travel if necessary!

-Keep the child's medical supplies in a bag nearby to prevent or decrease a stressful emergent situation

- Make sure to bring sick bags

- Travel with more than 1 adult, so that responsibility can be evenly shared.

- Above all, enjoy your time together and be sure to try and laugh as much as possible. Summer travel can and should be fun and advance preparation is key!
