On travel with your hearing aids

Hearing loss and Travelling

Travelling with your hearing aids and a hearing loss doesn't have to be scary. Prepare for your trip in advance and you shouldn't have any issues.

When you are traveling or flying off to a different country, you must prepare beforehand to avoid any problems that could affect your time and lifestyle. 

Make sure you stock up on batteries for your hearing aids before you travel, if you have rechargeable hearing aids then even better, just remember to pack the charger and an adapter for the local power socket. If your hearing aids are connected to your smartphone, then remember roaming charges may apply in your holiday destination, you can check this with your mobile provider. If you can't use the internet overseas then you can still use Bluetooth without using your data, just be sure to switch off mobile data on your phone. Most of all, have fun and enjoy all the sounds of the holiday.
