Date recorded: 18th July 2022

Desperate for a mini-break, family holiday or backpacking adventure, but worried about travelling with food allergies? In this Q&A our guests cover topics including, planning ahead, communicating with hotels, packing enough snacks and whether flying really puts you at risk from airborne allergens.  

Dr José Costa is a Consultant Paediatrician in Allergy and has a teenage son with food allergies. He is Honorary Clinical Lecturer at Warwick Medical School, a member of the Standards of Care Committee at The British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI) and runs several allergy clinics. He lists “travelling, sightseeing and scuba diving” among his interests!

Kyle Dine has lived with multiple food allergies for over 30 decades. For years his allergies made him too anxious to travel but in his early 20s he discovered a love of adventure which changed his life. Kyle is the founder of Equal Eats, a company which creates allergy translation cards, so travellers can explain their allergies in the local language when abroad.

Kyle and Dr Costa gave up their time for free to record this Q&A on 18th July 2022.
