Finally, people are starting to understand the danger of exposure to the sun's Ultra Violet (UV) rays. UV travel umbrellas or UV folding parasols as they're often referred to are increasingly an essential item when travelling to hot and sunny destinations. UV travel umbrellas are particularly important for people suffering from skin cancer, lupus and other conditions where sun exposure can cause serious medical problems. There are many types of UV protection parasols on the market but if you're travelling you should perhaps be aware that airlines will often not permit a full length umbrella in the cabin as hand luggage. In these circumstances a UV protection folding umbrella that stows away in your bag or rucksack can often be the way to go. We sell some particularly good quality UV protection folding parasols and UV travel umbrellas here at Umbrella Heaven. However, please be aware that although more convenient, a folding UV umbrella will never be as strong as a full length UV parasol - there is a trade off. Please browse through our folding UV protection parasols below at your leisure.
