Getting dialysis three times a week doesn’t mean the end of fun, travelling and holidays. You can still explore new places, visit family members and be present to significant live events even if they happen far away from where you currently live and have your dialysis at. It takes only some careful planning, but once you’re prepared then you can enjoy a break with an easy mind. “Holiday dialysis” gives you the opportunity to visit our dialysis center and receive the treatment you need as well as enabling you to enjoy your time while traveling.

Holiday Dialysis Tips
Holiday Dialysis Tips
Travel for kidney patients on dialysis does require more planning, however, the limitations in terms of where you can take a holiday and what sort of holiday you can take are probably far fewer than you would imagine. The following is topics that we recommend following to help you in planning process and to make sure you will have a rememberable happy holiday.
• Talk to your unit – Before doing any travel arrangements, talk to the unit where you are currently having your treatment at. You may also need a letter from them confirming your capability to travel along with their advices regarding immunization. You may also need their help in planning your treatment while on holiday.
• Choose your destination – whatever your treatment, it makes sense to ensure you are within reasonable reach of medical support in case of emergencies.
• Choose your accommodation – check that the accommodation you are considering is suitable for you and any special requirements that you may have. For example, if it is a hotel, do they cater for special renal diets?
• What to ask the Dialysis Unit before booking – Before selecting an overseas clinic for your holiday dialysis, you are advised to write to the chosen unit to ask:
Do they accept visitors?
Specify the date you would like to go.
Will there be a charge? If so, then how much per dialysis session?
Do they accept patients who have tested positive for Hepatitis, HIV or Aids? (it is not recommended that you dialyse in a unit which accepts these patients).
• Do they speak your language? Remember if you don’t speak the local language, check in advance whether the nurses speak any of the languages you speak.
• Holiday insurance – don’t book your holiday until you take out holiday insurance which covers you for a pre-existing medical condition. Most standard policies do not.
• As always, check with your renal unit regarding any over-the-counter drugs you are taking.
• Vaccinations – Find out whether you need any vaccinations for your destination but check with your renal unit before having any vaccinations – some may not be recommended for kidney patients.
• Medication – always divide your supply of tablets. Keep half with you in your hand luggage and pack the other half in the luggage you check in, or give it to a travelling companion to carry.
• Take a letter from your doctor stating that the drugs you are carrying are prescription drugs. Make sure you have written down the prescription names (as written on the label) of the medication you are on, so that if your supply is lost, you can advise doctors accordingly. Make sure they are allowed in the country you are travelling to.
• Food and drink – Watch what you eat and drink. Talk to your dietician before you go about local foods to avoid those that may be inconvenient for you during your travel.
• Emergencies – Make sure you and your travelling companion(s) have with you at all times emergency contact numbers. These should include the medical contact at your destination, numbers of your home renal unit, travel agent and insurance company.
• Remember it’s a vacation. Don’t forget to enjoy it and have fun!
