Bronchiectasis travel insurance covers you if you have recently had bronchiectasis, are prone to chest and lung-related illnesses and wish to travel with peace of mind. This type of insurance covers you for medical emergencies, even those related to COVID-19, which is vital to prevent unexpected medical bills and give you the support you need if you have any medical problems while you are away.
According to research by the British Lung Foundation, the estimated number of people living with bronchiectasis in the UK is 300,000.
The abnormal widening of airways leads to a buildup of mucus that makes the lungs more vulnerable to infection. In the changeable environment of travelling, your risk of infection could increase. Treatment can help to relieve your symptoms and prevent deterioration. Bronchiectasis travel insurance therefore covers you, even if you only need minor treatment, such as antibiotics, while you’re away.
With Travel Insurance for pre existing conditions you know that if you need help, a medical emergency assistance team is available 24 hours a day – 7 days a week, wherever your destination.
