If you are travelling with epilepsy, Avanti Travel Insurance can offer expert travel insurance for epilepsy sufferers. Epilepsy is a neurological condition caused by abnormal electrical activity in the brain and affects about 1 in 100 people in the UK.

Sufferers of epilepsy have seizures that start in the brain and differ according to one of the 40 types of epilepsy that a person has. Epilepsy can be left untreated if the seizures are non-intrusive and triggers can be avoided.

Avanti Travel Insurance knows that when travelling with epilepsy, it is important to take a few precautions to ensure you are safe, including getting medical epilepsy travel insurance. Always plan ahead and make sure that you have sufficient medication in case your journey is delayed. If your medicine needs to be kept cool, think about taking a small icebox with you, along with a letter from your doctor stating that the medication needs to be kept cool. Always check with the airline and travel provider that there are no restrictions on your travel if you have recently suffered a seizure and make sure that cabin staff are aware of your condition. There is also a Travellers Handbook for People with Epilepsy, which contains some great advice.

Avanti Travel Insurance provides specialist medical travel insurance for people with epilepsy. Not only will you be getting a bespoke, comprehensive policy, you will be getting peace of mind while you are away when purchasing travel insurance for epilepsy.
