Are you looking for COPD travel insurance? Avanti Travel Insurance provides tailored medical travel insurance for COPD. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is one of the most common respiratory diseases in the UK, affecting around 3 million people. It is an umbrella term for various lung diseases, including emphysema and chronic bronchitis, all of which are mainly caused by smoking.

Symptoms such as tightness of the chest, wheeziness and shortness of breath can be treated with medicines such as inhalers and, in more severe cases, surgery. Patients are advised to stop smoking, eat healthily and steadily increase exercise with breathing techniques. If treated, there is no reason why COPD should stop you from travelling. For more information on COPD, visit the NHS website.

Avanti Travel Insurance can provide cheap travel insurance for people with COPD, subject to terms and conditions, as well as most other medical conditions. It is always important to declare all of your past and present ailments to the sales agent when you call the UK contact centre or buy a policy online to ensure you are comprehensively covered for any COPD eventuality. Over 50s, over 60s and over 80s regularly recommend us to their friends and family because of the great value travel insurance for COPD sufferers that we provide.

If you have COPD and are thinking of booking a holiday, call our UK-based contact centre free or use our online quote engine.
