What you need to know when travelling with catheters

July 10 2020

The summer holidays are here, and while this year may look a little different with not much possibility to travel far or abroad, you may still be planning to enjoy your summer vacation by travelling locally.

Some  travellers will also be asking themselves: Will I be able to find a disabled toilet? Did I pack enough catheters? How will I get past customs with my catheters and medicine?

Especially for you, we put together a checklist to ease the stress.

What is an all-in-one kit?

October 12 2017

Why is it needed?

I live an active life, travelling a lot, and sometimes I find myself in places without accessible toilets. That is when I appreciate using an all-in-one kit. 

I prefer a kit over separate components that must be assembled, especially when I’m travelling as it greatly reduces the risk of leakage - Kent
