Travelling Abroad With A Disability & Mobility Products To Make Travel Easier

People with a physical or mental disability can find overseas travel challenging. This guide is to ensure disabled travellers and their companions receive correct information for travel this summer.

Book a holiday

Take into account considerations depending on your circumstances and disabilities:

  • Ensure you have comprehensive travel insurance that is appropriate to your needs
  • Research your destination and the facilities that are available, such as ease of access and transport options

Health and medication

Documentation

Anyone travelling within the European Economic Area or Switzerland should also get a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). You can apply for an EHIC online, by phone on 0845 606 2030 or at the Post Office.

Car use

If you intend to take or hire a car, the Blue Badge Scheme now operates throughout the EU. Adapted cars are now available for hire in many countries. Make sure you know the licence requirements, driving laws and driving conditions of the country you are visiting.
