WELCOME TO ALLERGYTRAVELS.COM, A SITE CREATED BY ALLERGY TRAVELERS FOR ALLERGY TRAVELERS!
Our team has been fortunate enough to safely visit over 70 countries with over 30 food allergies combined! We love to explore and want to bring that same love and enthusiasm to you. Since we know how challenging it can be to live with food allergies on a daily basis, we understand the extra time and effort it takes to plan for a vacation. By creating this site, we hope to alleviate the extra time and stress of planning with allergies by having easily accessible information right at your fingertips!
Since each of us was used to doing our own allergy research before venturing off to many incredible locations around the globe, we would occasionally catch each others’ social media posts and comment on our own experiences with food allergies in those same locations. As this continued, we realized we could not only help each other by sharing our allergy travel knowledge, but we could help the entire allergy community if we created a site to share what we had gained while traveling the world.
