Traveling with allergies post Covid-19 pandemic

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, traveling was not permitted or advised for anyone. People have been stuck at home with their kids and longing for a vacation and a way to leave their stress behind. The allergy community has felt this more than others. During the pandemic, restaurants that would generally be happy to accommodate people with food allergies are now overwhelmed with the new rules and regulations. They turn down people with food allergies.  

People with food allergies have been stuck at home, only eating home-cooked foods, no being able to eat out, and feeling very stressed. 

Now that the Covid-19 vaccine is available for people worldwide, many people have been thinking of traveling and taking a vacation. Many people have rented or bought an RV and have traveled around the country. While this is a good option, it still comes with a lot of food preparation and stress. 

 

Where is the safest place to travel to after the pandemic? 

Asia has handled Covid-19 pretty well. However, their cuisine is full of nuts, sesame, peanuts, and other dangerous allergens. The chance for cross-contamination is very high, and there are most likely no allergy-friendly places to visit. The UK is usually an option, but their Covid-19 situation is still not stable and still unsafe. Israel, on the other hand, is a very safe country post-covid. Most of the population in Israel are vaccinated, and the country is starting to open up to tourism in the coming months.

Food Allergy Concierge offers a variety of packages for tourists visiting Israel. Our trained health professionals and allergy experts provide a variety of food allergy concierge services that will help you enjoy an allergy-free and stress-free vacation! Here are some of our services:

  1. Itinerary & menu planning – we can help you plan a fun itinerary that will include safe food options all over Israel. We will also make sure that your menu is entirely safe from your allergens!
  2. Translated Food allergy card – our trained professionals can make you a specialized card with your allergens and food that you should avoid (specific to the Israeli cuisine). This card can be shown to someone at a hotel or restaurant, and they will know what you are allergic to and what you should avoid. 
  3. Food prep supervision in hotels and restaurants – One of our more premium services is food-prep supervision. We will send a team of allergy experts to the restaurant/hotel you are visiting, and they will supervise every step of the food preparation and make sure that it is safe for consumption. 

 

We ensure that allergens stay out of your food so that you can eat with confidence just like you would at home and enjoy an allergy-safe vacation!

What Our Clients Say

Meticulous in their preparations

During our recent visit to Israel, we really struggled to find food for our son who has anaphylactic level allergies to egg and sesame. We approached both restaurants and hotels and were told they were unable or unwilling to take responsibility for preparing his food.

 After learning about Dr. Eliana on-line, we contacted her in the hopes that she could provide a ‘normal’ restaurant experience for our family.

 Both she and Shani were meticulous in their preparations with the restaurants to ensure that our son had a wonderful and safe experience.

 We truly appreciate their efforts to take care of our son, and to provide us with a lovely vacation experience.

Comfortable, calm, and at ease

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing gift you have given us over this Pesach- the gift of having you with us!!!!

We have NEVER felt more comfortable, calm, and at ease than we did these past 10 days. Your warmth, professionalism, kindness, and care shown through in all that you did.

My children are so grateful that they were able to be with you this Pesach. You made sure that they were so well looked after and they felt so at ease and comfortable with you! You were so amazing and approachable to them! And they LOVED all the food you so amazingly prepared (supervised allergy-free food preparation, managed menus) for them!

It’s very difficult for us to trust people when it comes to our kids and allergies. You magically were able to take away ALL of our anxieties, and nervousness (and we don’t give that away so easily!!)

We can never fully thank you enough. We truly feel that you instantly became part of our family and we look forward to G-d willing being able to be with you and plan amazing trips with you many many many more times!!!!

The Allergy Card was Extremely Helpful

"Food Allergy Concierge assisted us with a very helpful, detailed customized allergy card in Hebrew.  The Allergy card was extremely helpful for multiple allergies and allowed us to eat safely in several eateries and hotels. Highly recommended.”

Allergy Free baked goods for the lockdown

My family ordered a week's worth of food from Food Allergy Concierge during the most recent lockdown. Having the food on hand, and knowing that it was safe for everyone in the family to eat, helped turn the lockdown into a stay-cation! We were still able to take a break from cooking and worrying, and we look forward to using FAC's services again in the future.
