We’ve been involved in travel health for many years and your wellbeing is very important to us. Following these simple tips can make a big difference to how you feel when you arrive at your destination.

Here are some of our helpful hints to ease you through your flight:

Flying with Confidence

Does flying make you nervous?

Why not book yourself on to a Flying with Confidence course to help overcome your fear of flying. Whether you just have a mild anxiety about flying, or you can't even look at an aircraft without feeling scared, our tailored courses can help conquer your fears.

Sleep and exercise tips

Sleep and gentle exercise on a flight is important to boost your energy levels, helping you to arrive at your destination feeling refreshed.


We don’t recommend using sleep medication during a flight as it may prevent you from following the cabin crew instructions in the unlikely event of an emergency. You may also be too sleepy to move around on the flight, which could increase your risk of circulatory problems.

If you do plan to take medication always keep it in the original packaging, carry enough to last the duration of your trip and bring it in your hand baggage so you have easy access to it. If it is new medication always try it at home first in case you suffer any side effects.
