Food

Sensitivities

Traveling when you have food sensitivities can be challenging.

All-Inclusive

Tips:

  • Send a detailed email to some all-inclusive hotels and see how they respond. If they answer with "oh yes no problem" but don't answer specific questions or go into detail, then I would be weary of them.
  • Ask if the chefs speak English.
  • Some naturopaths recommended taking 2 Betaine HCL tablets with each meal to help avoid stomach upset.

Recommendations:

  • Sandals - Expensive, though.
  • Karisma - Good reviews on tripadvisor
  • Disney World
  • Cruises.

Insurance

  • Kanetix - Travel insurance quotes (recommended by Money Sense Feb/Mar 2015)
  • If you travel regularly, it can be cheaper to buy annual insurance instead of for each trip.

Lodgings

  • Air Bnb - People renting out their homes or rooms. Allows for reviews.
  • VRBO - people renting out their homes or rooms.
  • HomeStay - Authentic experiences. Stay with people.
