    Hi can anyone please recommend best travel case to keep insulin cool for Vials please? Last time I travelled I used pre-loaded cartridges but I’m on a Medtronic 640g now. Thank you

    I was recommended Frio products on here and recently used them for travel lasting over 24 hours. I was very impressed with them, in fact they would have kept insulin cool for much longer than that. Their website has a variety of options and sizes suitable for different insulin configurations. Delivery was fast too.

    I too use Frio. My Frio cases are more than 10 years old and were purchased for insulin pens but still going strong and work just as well for vials.
    Don't forget to take pens as backup if you are going away.

    I've just come back from Italy where temperatures were 28/30c and kept insulin cool in 20 year old Frio cases, they have lasted so well and really do the job. I keep thinking I should buy new ones but these work as good as they did 20 years ago. I use a large one to keep everything in hotel room ( no fridge) and a small one for a back up pen when out.
