Asthma is a common, chronic condition that Avanti Travel Insurance provides specialist travel cover for.
It affects the lungs, causing coughing, wheezing and breathlessness. Thought to be hereditary, the bronchi in the lungs of 5.4 million UK sufferers becomes inflamed because they are more sensitive than normal. There is no cure for asthma, but it can easily be treated with a combination of medication and lifestyle changes.
Avanti believes that with the correct preparation, asthma should not restrict you from travelling. If you have a more severe form of asthma and need a nebuliser to travel, you should contact the airline or your travel provider in advance to make the necessary arrangements. It is advised to carry your inhalers, with prescription labels, in your hand luggage in case you need it whilst travelling to and from your destination.Hundreds of Avanti’s valued customers have asthma, which is why we specialise in travel insurance for asthma sufferers. If there is anything you would like to know about travelling with asthma or any other medical condition, call our Braintree office free for an informal, no-obligation chat about the best travel insurance for you and we’ll organise a quote tailored to your needs.
