Travel ideas for someone with epilepsy

Travelling with epilepsy. Any tips, suggestions on types of holidays like cruises? How do you go with travel insurance? Also how do you go with traveling when you can’t drive?

A lot will depend on the medication you are taking and how well it controls your epilepsy.

Travel insurance: Like all disabled people you need to declare the issue, and answer further questions as required. I'm not aware of any companies which specialise in epilepsy, but a charity which helps epiletics might be able to give help.

For advice on cruises you could also ask in the linked Internet site at https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/69-ask-a-cruise-question/

If you are involved with a charity which helps epileptics, that may be your best source for advice.

Regarding the transport problem, many choose not to hire a car on holiday, I'm often surprised that so many manage without a car. I haven't hired a car for years, which is why I've often visited Singapore, where there's a great public transport system, and car hire is not a good option for tourists. I do avoid destinations where I consider a car essential, and where I'd find the driving challenging. So first think where you'd like to go, then ask in the destination forum. To find the destination forum Google tripadvisor forum destination.name

All of us disabled find planning a holiday difficult. I'm sure you'll get something sorted, and will enjoy a lovely holiday.
