If you suffer from a food allergy, Allergy UK can help protect you and your family when travelling abroad.
Translation cards are available from Allergy UK and will ensure others are made aware of your allergy despite any language barriers.
A set of three plastic cards per language are provided, each about the size of a credit card. The cards feature an allergy alert message, an emergency message and a message for use in restaurants to ensure that your food order is free from the particular allergen that causes your reaction.
The cards are printed in English on one side and the language of the country you are visiting on the reverse side.
Cards for over 70 different allergens are available in 36 languages:
Balinese, Bengali, Bulgarian, Cambodian (Khmer), Chinese (Simplified), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Flemish, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Indonesian, Japanese, Lao, Malay, Maltese, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Russian, Slovene, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Tamil, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese.
Please check with our Allergy Helpline for details.
A set of three cards cost £15 per language.

We have just returned from our first trip abroad with my son who has many allergies. I found out about your allergy cards the week before we left. The lady I spoke to on the phone was super and they arrived so quickly. We used the cards so, so much and they were worth their weight in gold. Cant recommend them enough. A huge thank you!
