Well I have now managed to stay out of hospital for 5 months nearly, so thought I'd make the most of this good spell and book a holiday. I am planning to go to Germany to visit a friend in Nov, but making arrangements is a whole new learning curve!
Firstly I have to get a Drs letter to confirm I can fly then pay an additional Â£100 for oxygen for the flight. I was pretty disgusted that Ryanair charge Â£1 per minute to telephone them to request additional support e.g oxygen and taking my w/ch with me. I have also sent an e-mail to the oxygen providers in Germany to arrange my oxygen for over there. If I book through my local provider it is over Â£100, which for a short visit is all getting expensive.
Has anybody else had similar experiences? I am quite nervous as would be in a mess if the oxygen wasn't in place (on plane/friends house). I am hoping my small sonic neb will be ok in hand luggage with a Drs note. I have got an EHIC card so wasn't sure whether I needed additional insurance, as its already an expensive short trip with the costs of O2. Would be good to hear from anybody else who has travelled abroad with the extra essentials asthma brings with it! Thanks
