Travel anxiety is a kind of anxiety which strikes when you’re travelling, about to travel, or considering taking a trip. This mental health issue can prevent you from going on holiday, or even visiting places you are unfamiliar with. This can be a serious concern if you have to travel for work, leaving you in a permanent state of nervousness. Anxiety of any kind can cause a range of serious problems to your health, including exacerbating other health issues.

Serious anxiety of any kind can cause long-term issues with your health, including exacerbating existing conditions.||£4,450 to £88,000.|
In most cases, travel anxiety can be directly traced to a previous incident. For example, road traffic collisions are a common cause of anxiety. Anxiety when travelling can also occur following any kind of incident involving travel, such as flying or sailing.
Anxiety can make you unwilling to travel, particularly to places you aren’t familiar with. In the worst cases, serious anxiety can make you unwilling to leave your home. Anxiety can also stop you from travelling for work or going on holiday.
The symptoms of travel anxiety are similar to those of any other kind of anxiety. These symptoms can include:
- Heart Palpitations.
- Shortness of Breath.
- Dizziness and Faintness.
- Hot or Cold Flashes.
- Fear of Going Mad.
- Trembling and Shaking.
- Chest Pains.
It is possible for anxiety to cause an upset stomach. This can not only be embarrassing, but it can create a further deterrent against travelling. This anxiety can be further compounded by an upset stomach, which will further contribute to symptoms.
In addition to an upset stomach, diarrhoea is a common symptom of anxiety when travelling. Diarrhoea can make it difficult and even impossible to travel.
Finding travel insurance when you suffer from anxiety or depression can be difficult. Travel insurance companies will often raise premiums if you suffer from anxiety. However, there are travel insurance companies willing to cover you,
Any kind of anxiety can be incredibly difficult to overcome. Sometimes, they will pass on their own, whereas they will sometimes require cognitive behavioural therapy to resolve. The first step is talking to a healthcare professional about your symptoms and their cause.
Medication is available for anxiety in the UK. If you suffer from general or travel-specific anxiety, you may be eligible for anxiety medication. Available medication includes:
- Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors.
- Serotonin and Noradrenaline Reuptake Inhibitors.
Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs)
These antidepressants are a common treatment for anxiety. They increase the level of serotonin in the brain. Some of the most common kinds of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors include:
These SSRIs can take several weeks to start working properly.
Serotonin and Noradrenaline Reuptake Inhibitors (SNRIs)
If SSRIs don’t work, then you may be prescribed serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors. These increase the amount of serotonin and noradrenaline present in your brain. Some of the most common SNRIs include:
Pregabalin is an anti-convulsant. Normally used to treat conditions like epilepsy, this medication has also proven to be essential in the treatment of serious anxiety. This treatment is less likely to cause serious side effects than anti-depressant medication.
If you are suffering from serious short-term anxiety, then benzodiazepines may be recommended. These sedatives can be used to quickly ease symptoms of anxiety. Unfortunately, they are extremely addictive, so they cannot be taken for great periods of time.
If you don’t want to take medication, there are other ways of treating your illness. You can, for example, practice mindfulness and meditation. Breathing exercises, in addition to regular exercise, can severely reduce your anxiety levels.
