You aren’t defined by your asthma, so why should it define how you spend your holidays?
We believe that having asthma shouldn’t stop you from being able to travel as often as you’d like to. In fact, taking a holiday abroad might be just what you need to feel more refreshed. That’s why we consider all pre-existing medical conditions for our travel insurance.
Feeling inspired to discover more of the world at your pace? Let’s get your asthma travel insurance sorted first so you can travel with confidence knowing you’re covered.

When you’ve got Avanti Travel Insurance, if something does go wrong - we'll always aim to put it right. Good to know, especially if you’re travelling with pre-existing health conditions.
That’s Travel Reassurance!
Yes, it’s essential for you to declare your asthma, along with any other pre-existing medical conditions you have, when getting travel insurance.
By telling us about your medical conditions and the nature of your asthma, we can make sure that any cover we offer you will meet your individual needs and work for you.
Maybe your asthma is under control and you only need to use an inhaler occasionally, or perhaps you get out of breath in warmer climates and need additional equipment to make breathing easier. We need to know the nature of your condition so that the cover we provide is fair and meets your needs fully.
If you didn’t declare a pre-existing medical condition and needed to make a claim for any treatment for this condition when you were abroad, we would not be able to cover you for it. So telling us about your pre-existing medical conditions is very important, both for getting you insurance for your needs and for saving you from unexpected medical fees.

If you are planning a holiday or trip to Europe, you will need to get an EHIC.
The EHIC is free and entitles you to free healthcare in most European countries when you use their state healthcare. Before you travel, you should check that your destination is covered by EHIC, so you can be prepared if you do need treatment for your asthma, or other conditions, during your trip.
Your EHIC is not the same as having good travel insurance for your medical conditions and won’t cover you for things that go wrong, such as emergency transportation home. That’s where your travel insurance with pre-existing medical cover comes in. What your EHIC can do is reduce your medical costs where subsidized healthcare is available.
If you can use your EHIC to get treatment for your condition and you have to pay a subsidised fee for your healthcare, we will remove the excess fee for your medical emergency claims.
You might think that it is better to buy a separate policy that covers your asthma to your family when going away. Buying a travel insurance policy together can often be cheaper and also gives you additional benefits, as well as peace of mind.
The biggest benefit of buying your travel insurance together is being able to travel with the confidence that you should all be covered if you have to cancel your holiday due to a medical emergency. If you had purchased separate policies, it is unlikely that any traveller, other than the person who is ill, would be covered for having to cancel the holiday.
So buying your cover together on the same policy will give you and your family the added protection and reassurance if you do need to claim back the full cost of your holiday, due to a medical emergency.
