Holidays and travel

13) Additional costs

CostsIn addition to your usual holiday costs such as your insurance, ticket, accommodation and spending money you may find some extra costs:

  • Travel Insurance – this can become more expensive when you have a long term condition.  (Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland: sympathetic travel insurance companies factsheet [.pdf])
  • Transporting additional equipment such as oxygen.
  • If travelling outside the UK you may need to pay for your own oxygen supply. 
  • You may need to bring a travel companion.
  • Travel to some countries requires additional vaccinations. These can sometimes have a charge.
