Getting travel insurance for Leukaemia can sometimes be difficult, which is why Avanti offers specialist medical travel cover for cancer patients. Leukaemia is a type of cancer of the blood or bone marrow. Immature white blood cells, known as blasts, are abnormally formed in huge numbers in the body. Leukaemia is an umbrella term used for a whole spectrum of diseases and can affect people of any age. It is a treatable disease usually involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy or bone marrow transplants.
Avanti Travel Insurance covers Leukaemia, subject to terms and conditions. As with all other types of cancers, it is vital to make sure that you are getting the correct amount of medical cover should you fall ill whilst abroad. All of Avanti’s Leukaemia medical travel policies include up to £10million medical and emergency expenses, including getting you home if you need it.
