If you are traveling with airline tickets and an itinerary from them or a travel site like Expedia, etc, you should be able to ask your insurance company for a "vacation override". In general, you have it correct 2X supplies, but take it with a grain of salt. I always carry double the infusion sets and insulin, but maybe only 1.5X the insulin reservoirs, batteries, etc.
