Long travels can be a challenge. SpeediCath Compact Catheters are great for travelling, as they don’t take up much space in your bag. SpeediCath Compact Set is a discreet catheter with a bag attached, which is a great alternative when you have limited access to washrooms.
Prepare for Airport Security
Some catheters contain liquids. Bring a travel certificate that says that your baggage contains medical devices. (You can request one here)
Talk to your physician to choose the catheter design that best meets your needs.
Have a Backup Plan
Having your luggage lost, misplaced or damaged can be a stressful and all too common part of holiday travelling. Take these precautions in order to make everything as smooth as possible:
- Make sure to keep extra supplies with you in case you are separated from your luggage.
- Research the local supplier in the city you’re travelling to is. Having the name and number ready to go will save you time in a pinch.
- Going on a longer trip? Designate a friend, family member, or your supplier as an emergency “shipper” who can over-night your supplies in case of emergency.
