When you travel with your assistance dog, or with medication in your carry on bag, life can be quite challenging, to say the least. Communications is very important at these moments, crucial really. Language barriers can sometimes be difficult to cross.
So we made Travel Info Sheets, handy to take along when you travel by air or by train. In a few words you can explain your basics, and it can make travelling, crossing borders or finding the right gate in the airport (instead of missing a plane) easier.
It is easy to take the sheets with you, either in print or you save them on your mobile device and show it to anybody who can help you. Language barriers can be challenging. The ATO Travel sheets will give you more independence, feeling more confident while traveling.

Travel with assistance dog, medication, when you are visually or hearing impaired
The travel sheets explain in basic words what it means to have your medications with you, and that you must have them at all times, especially during travel. The info about assistance dogs will help you explain that your dog needs to be with you 24/7. When you are visually or hearing impaired it is good to have this info with you, so you can give it to people and ask for help in their own language. It will be so much easier for you to get directions for instance.
