Most people love to travel and rightly so. The world has so much to explore and enjoy, so why should you be restricted to the UK alone when planning your next holiday? What’s more, if you have a medical condition, you shouldn’t be worried about travelling abroad – as long as you take the right precautions. Instead, it can be pretty easy to journey around the world and see the amazing sights on offer. This is regardless of whether you’re elderly, disabled, or even have a medical condition.

REMINDER - The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, effective June 2009, mandates that all United States citizens and residents leaving the country present a valid U.S. passport to U.S. customs officials upon their return trip. This includes persons traveling to Mexico, Canada and the Caribbean islands. Each country has visa and passport requirements for foreign visitors, so get the specifics before boarding the plane. Some do not require that U.S. citizens be valid passport holders. Regardless of your destination, however, you will need to present one on the way home. Remember, a valid U.S. passport has not yet expired and will not expire during your trip. Click here for Passport and Visa information.
