Travel advice

Having a stoma should not prevent you from travelling at home or abroad. The important thing is to plan ahead and be prepared. Take plenty of supplies and always make sure that you carry an emergency travel kit in case you need to change your bag away from home.

We can offer comprehensive travel advice to help you and lots of useful information is contained in our Travel Advice booklet and in the resources about the bottom of the page. We’ve also put together a handy travel checklist. You may find our  travel certificate useful, which explains to the authorities that you have a stoma and is translated into many languages.
