Travel insurance


Travel certificates

It’s a great idea to travel with a travel certificate that explains what an ostomy is and the need to carry supplies in multiple languages. You can often obtain these from a delivery company, ostomy association or your stoma nurse. Here are a few:

I hope these come in handy!

These are mostly UK and Australia based sites, so if anyone has any websites or handy tips for other countries, please do add them in the comments.

Happy travels,
