We’ve been through it ourselves, so we know how important it is to feel safe and prepared before flying off to an unknown destination with diabetes.
That’s why we’ve created the International Diabetic Travelers Network, where worried travelers can get in touch with local volunteers and ask them about anything related to living with diabetes in their hometown/country.
The International Diabetic Travelers Network is an entirely free online network connecting travelers with diabetes with local diabetes volunteers at their travel destination.
It has been created by Sweet Trip in 2017 and now counts with more than 600 volunteers at more than 50 destinations around the World. It works exclusively online. There are no intention that volunteers and travelers meet in person. The volunteers will help the travelers and answer their questions and worries about traveling with diabetes at their destination mostly via email conversations.
International Diabetes Volunteer help out diabetic travelers who visit their country by addressing their questions and worries about traveling with diabetes at destination.
When a diabetic traveler contacts us with a request of information about a specific country, we will put him/her in touch with a local volunteer via email. They will start a discussion where the volunteer will try and help the traveler resolve his/her problems.
It’s quite simple! All you have to do is fill out the form below and let us know your travel dates and destination.
We will immediately contact our Volunteers at your destination and will put you in touch via email with the ones that have accepted your request.
You will then initiate an online conversation where you will be able to ask the volunteer pretty much any questions or worries you have related to traveling with diabetes in his/her country.
Pretty much anything you want that is related to living with diabetes in his/her country or hometown. Here are a few examples of the most common questions diabetic travelers ask our local volunteers:
These are just a few examples. But really, don’t be shy! Our volunteers have the best of intentions and are willing to help you with any of your questions and worries.
Absolutely NOT. The International Diabetic Travelers Network is FREE of use.
Sweet Trip, as the organiser of the network is NOT making any financial income from the Network. NO money is involved in the Diabetic Travelers Network, and at no point you will be asked to pay any fee.
As a security, we will be monitoring email exchanges between travelers and volunteers. A member of our team will always be in copy of each email exchange you have with our volunteers. Should something go wrong, all you have to do is report the conversation to our team and we will immediately close it.
Rest assured though: we have never had such a case before! Every connection that we have made between a volunteer and a traveler has always been a success.
Whether you’re traveling to New-York, Thailand, South Africa, or Paris: we probably have a local volunteer waiting to help you out! To get connected with him/her, fill out the form below. Then, wait for our email with your volunteer’s contact information, and get in touch!
