    What should you do if your baggage is lost with medication inside?

    Sometimes it is necessary to pack all or part of your medication in your check-in baggage. Here is what you should do if your baggage is lost with medication inside.

    What to do if your baggage is lost with medication inside

    Ideally, you should keep medication you require during your holiday in your hand luggage.

    Please note: to prevent delays while going through airport security, keep all medication, syringes, etc. in their original packaging and take a supporting letter from your GP or a prescription with you to prove that the medication was prescribed to you.

    There are, however, times when this may not be possible. If this was the case and your baggage is lost with medication inside:

    • Report the loss of your baggage to relevant airport authorities immediately
    • Inform them that the baggage contains required medication and finding it is urgent

    If your baggage is lost with medication inside, you may be unable to obtain replacement medication at your destination. This, of course, could ruin your holiday unless your baggage is found and returned to you quickly.
