Are you travelling with a hernia? Avanti provides specialist medical travel insurance for those with a hernia. A hernia is caused by an internal part of the body pushing through the external cavity and protrudes under the skin. This is normally due to a weakness in the cavity muscle and can be assessed using an ultrasound scan.

Due to the risk of obstruction or lack of blood flow, surgery is normally recommended to correct most types of hernias.

Although flying straight after hernia surgery is not recommended, in most cases it is deemed safe as long as extra precautions are taken. These include not lifting heavy suitcases and overexertion. There is also an increased risk of swelling, and thus strangulation, if you travel with a protruding hernia.

In either instance, it is vital that you disclose all of your medical conditions when purchasing hernia medical travel insurance with Avanti. As with most other medical conditions, Avanti does not believe that travelling with a hernia should stop you from enjoying a well-deserved holiday. To keep our prices low and our policies cheap, we offer free cover for a hiatus hernia if you call our office, subject to terms and conditions.

For more information on a hernia and the many other conditions that are covered, call our UK-based contact centre or go online for a quick, user-friendly quote.
