Travelling tips when over 85

Ensure you're fit to fly- It's recommended to visit a doctor to get confirmation that you are fit to fly.

Book a flight with no stop-overs if possible - It's highly recommended to book a long-haul flight with no stop-overs, as this will greatly minimise the potential for stress, and the chance of a missed connection which will add more time to the overall journey.

Have medication in hand luggage - It's recommended to take such medication in a small piece of hand luggage, stowed close to the place were the you will be sitting. It's also a good idea to bring along a list of medications and dosages, in case you should need to visit the doctors' during the trip.
