    It's always good to have a doctor's letter to explain why you are carrying medical supplies.  I get one whenever I'm travelling, sometimes they ask me for it and sometimes they don't but I'm always prepared.

    Cheers,

    Hi Marilyn92910,

    Further to the excellent advice offerred by Pamela27602, AND if you're travelling along with someone else, 'share' out your supplies and take it onboard as hand luggage.  Do NOT allow it to go into the hold of the plane as the insulin would freeze, rendering it useless.

    Sharing it out amongst travelling parties is a safety issue in that if one of your bags gets stolen/misplaced/lost you still have suplies that you can count on.

    It's good that you're taking multiple insulin pens.  When travelling you should always 'expect the unexpected'. i.e. allow for failure of a pen device, that it 'somehow' gets broken, is lost, that the insulin becomes cloudy, indicating that you shouldn't use it, etc.

    Have a great time in Malta, ma'am.

    Lots of Love and Light.

    Dear Marilyn92910,

    Please forgive me, ma'am.  I read it that you had multiple insulin pens.  What I believe you're referring to is the MultiClix Lancet Pen ... a lancing device for testing your blood glucose (sugar) levels.

    I still hope you have a great time in Malta.

    Lots of Love and Light.
