Having a breathing condition shouldn’t stop you from being able to explore the world at your own pace. In fact taking a holiday could be just what you need to relax and unwind.
As expert providers of travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions, we know that there is no one-size that fits all when it comes to breathing conditions. We know that no two breathing conditions are the same and that they can affect people in different ways.
That’s why we have our medical screening process, so you can tell us the breathing conditions you’ve been diagnosed with, along with any other medical conditions, and how these affect your daily life.
We consider the following breathing conditions for our pre-existing medical travel insurance:
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, you will need to declare your breathing condition, along with any other medical conditions that you may have, when getting travel insurance, so these can be considered within your cover.
If you didn’t declare your breathing condition, or any of your medical conditions, when getting your travel insurance quote, we would not be able to cover you.
Breathing conditions can affect people in different ways. It might be that you use a combination of inhalers and other medication to control your breathing condition, or perhaps you use a nebuliser from time to time when you need help with your breathing.
This is why we have a medical screening process, so you can tell us about your pre-existing medical conditions and how they impact your daily activities. Telling us about your conditions will allow us to build you a level of cover that meets your individual needs, giving you peace of mind for when you travel.

To make sure we can offer you the best possible cover to suit your needs, we will need to ask you the following questions about your breathing condition:
If you are planning on taking a holiday in Europe, you will need to get an EHIC as a condition of our travel insurance.
The EHIC is free and entitles you to free healthcare in most European countries when you use their state provided healthcare. Before you travel, it’s best to check that your destination is covered by EHIC, so that you can be prepared if you do need any treatment during your holiday.
Your EHIC is not the same as having good travel insurance for your medical conditions and won’t cover you for things that might go wrong, such as having to cancel your holiday or emergency transport home. That’s where your travel insurance with pre-existing medical conditions comes in. What your EHIC can do is reduce the medical costs where subsidised healthcare is available to you.
If you can use your EHIC to receive treatment during your holiday, and you have paid a subsidised fee, we will remove the excess fee for your medical emergency claims.
If you have lung cancer, or are in remission from lung cancer then we may be able to offer you our full cover if you can say yes to all of the following:
If you are awaiting surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy to treat your lung cancer, then we may still be able to offer you some cover, but we would not be able to cover your pre-existing medical conditions.
That means you wouldn’t be covered for anything that could be caused by your breathing condition or any of your other pre-existing conditions, like having to cancel your trip.
If we are unable to provide you with cover, due to you waiting for treatment, being given a terminal prognosis or not being declared fit by your doctor, we may be able to signpost you to alternative travel insurance providers. The British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA) can assist you in finding an alternative travel insurance provider for your medical condition.
