5 steps to plan your trip
Having your condition taken care of during your trip is not as difficult as you might imagine. We are here to help you make the dialysis treatment arrangements for your entire journey, from understanding your needs, to liaising with the dialysis center at your destination, to confirming your booking.

  • Holiday Dialysis - Plan in advance

    1. Plan in advance

    Speak to your healthcare team to make sure you are fit to travel. Once you have your doctor's consent, inform the holiday dialysis coordinator in your home country, ideally at least 6 weeks in advance of your trip.
  • Holiday Dialysis - Documentation

    2. Confirm dialysis center’s availability and documentation

    We will check the availability of our dialysis service at your holiday destination. Once you submit the required documents and sign off on the holiday dialysis service that we have proposed, the arrangement will be confirmed.
  • Holiday Dialysis - Flight

    3. Confirm flights & accommodation

    Only once your holiday dialysis treatments are confirmed should you confirm your flights, accommodation and other travel details.
  • Holiday Dialysis - Backup Plan

    4. Have a backup plan

    Consult with your healthcare team on what to do in case of unexpected situations while you are away from home. Let your travel companion know how to help.
  • Holiday Dialysis - Medicine

    5. Bring your medication along

    Bring along your medication (which should be enough to last through your trip plus a few extra days’ worth in case of an unexpected delay) and the medical information to enable an optimal treatment during your holiday.
