Travel Insurance for
Asthma and other Lung conditions

Having a lung condition such as Asthma will be an important consideration when buying travel insurance. Even if your symptoms are mild, you should ensure that your policy provides cover in case you experience any problems affecting your breathing whilst you are travelling. For more serious Asthma, COPD or similar conditions, the risk of your condition impacting on your travel plans will increase so take out an insurance policy that lets you relax, knowing that you will be covered if a problem occurs.

Some 5.4 million people in the UK are receiving treatment for Asthma, and approximately 300 million people worldwide are affected by the condition. Although Asthma is generally well managed, there are still many cases of severe symptoms being triggered by a number of factors including air quality, allergens, illness. Travelling away from home can increase exposure to triggers and experiencing more serious symptoms in an unfamiliar place can be very frightening, so ensure that your travel insurance policy includes cover for the unexpected, even if your condition is usually well controlled.

Worldwide Travel Insurance offers cover at competitive rates, with low medical endorsment premiums, ensuring that you can have the peace of mind of knowing you are covered at an affordable cost.
If your Lung condition is stable and well controlled, we have a number of options to suit your needs.
