People with epilepsy need to take special precautions when travelling. The IBE Epilepsy Passport, which has been revised and republished as Traveller's Handbook for People with Epilepsy, is a very useful booklet for anyone undertaking a trip.

It contains general advice for travellers, covering such topics as accommodation, insurance, driving and getting around. It also includes a set of First Aid instructions, reminders regarding medication and a very practical selection of phrases.

The information in the booklet is available in 13 different languages and is designed to assist travellers with preparation and communication while travelling abroad.

You can download the English version below also the "Useful Phrases" from the handbook translated into differnet languages.

Foreign Language versions are available at:
