Since booking my holiday I’ve fallen pregnant can I still fly? If I can’t, can I get a refund?

You should speak with your travel company or airline. Normally you can’t fly if you are more than 32 weeks pregnant at the time of your return flight. 

We recommend that if you’re flying after 24 weeks of falling pregnant you take a letter from your doctor confirming that it’s safe for you to travel. This letter should not be dated more than 14 days prior to the initial flight.

Top tip

Talk to your Dr who can advise whether you should continue with your plans.

Remember though that insurance companies do not generally pay out should you need to cancel your booking due to being pregnant as it’s not classified as a medical ‘condition’.

If you do continue your holiday, check that your travel insurance covers you completely.
