Travelling during this COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenge for most Australians as we now enter a third year. Some freedoms are returning and as we draw closer to planning our next escape, it is essential for people with bleeding disorders to plan ahead.
Most importantly, always make contact with your Haemophilia Treatment Centre (HTC) well in advance, who will advise on what to consider.
Travelling during a pandemic can be unpredictable and planning for last minute, unexpected changes is vital. Prepare for the unfortunate instance where you may be unable to return home on your planned date.
Being prepared is the key to a successful and healthy trip away.
Bon voyage and stay safe!
