Holidays often mean travel, which can be complicated when you are dealing with food allergies. Follow our travel guides to find out what allergy medications airlines allow through security, how to request a special airline meal, and how to let the airline know about your allergy.

Always take with you:

  • Your emergency first-aid kit
  • Your doctor’s contact information
  • Plenty of safe food that you can eat while in transit. Pack twice as much as you think you will need - you never know when there will be a travel delay during the holidays.
